8/9 November

A massive weekend is ahead for the Neggie with 12 games taking place and 20/20 action also to follow on Tuesday night. Looking for lots of wins this weekend!


The firsts and seconds both have double headers this weekend, so make sure all players prepare to a high standard to get onto the field is best possible condition for both days.

The First XI is at home on Saturday to Parkdale UTD, the first’s are looking to bounce back this Saturday with the return of the swashbuckling skipper “Fenno”. Get down to Koornang Park and support the lads. The First’s then saddle up again on Sunday this time down @ Dendy Park vs BDCC in a South Division clash, with Peter Cassidy making his long awaited return for the club. Special mention to Alan “Budgie” Patey and Daniel “WK” Walton for doing some wicket prep @ KP this afternoon in the heat and straight from work, well done lads.

The Seconds head down the Jack Grut Reserve to play Parkdale UTD on Saturday, the seconds are in good form sitting on top with only one narrow loss so far for the season. The Seconds then host BDCC at Lord Reserve on Sunday in a South Seconds clash, rumor has it that one of our old players and Bubbles best mate Brian Randall will be up against us.

The 3rd’s are mid match on Saturday down at Lord Reserve against Mooney Valley and we are 0/17 chasing 176 for the win.

The equal top of the ladder 4th XI are away this week out at Fawkner Park #2 vs Monash Uni with Tony Gabbert making his return, i’m sure the opposition will love his advice whilst they are batting.

The Sunday A Grade is away at Monash Uni with the match slightly in Monash’s favour with Carnegie defending 173 all out and Monash Uni 1/29 in reply. Get some quick wickets lads and we will be back in front here.

The Sunday B grade coming off 2 back to back wins are looking to make it 3 in a row and this time coming up against long term club rivals in Clayton Districts. I have noticed the Brian Lazzaro is umpiring so make sure the game is finished by 6pm!

More about the T20 vs McKinnon @ McKinnon on Tuesday, we will name the team on the front page of the website. Also training will be optional on this Tuesday so we can get down and support our very successful T-20 side.


Plenty of Friday night home games this week with 3 teams @ home. The under 11 colts at Lord #3 vs Malvern White, the U-13 @ East Caulfield Reserve vs Toorak-Prahran Purple and the U-15’s @ Packer Park vs Toorak-Prahran Green. The U-11 Gryphons are away vs Mulgrave Red @ Mulgrave Reserve East.

The Saturday U-11’s have a bye this week but the 3 Carnegie T-20 Blast teams will all be up and running @ Koornang Park this Saturday, any senior help is welcomed to assist in cooking the BBQ and general help for Luke. Be there at 9.30am.


Two social events coming up on the 15th of November, the Saturday Junior awards day kicking off from 4.30pm @ Koornang Park this event runs until 6.30pm. The BBQ will be running at the bar open. There will also be a special presentation for one of our Juniors for his 50th game.

Then the first senior social event for 2014/15 kicks off at 7.30pm with the reverse shuffle night, buy your ticket and pick a song in advance or from a select list on the night to win $250 cash. Also special prizes on the night for best dressed and the best dance moves. $20.00 entry includeds finger food and your song and entry to the draw. This is the first fundraiser for the year so get behind the social committee.


Stockdale & Leggo is again on board as naming rights sponsor for season 2014/15, get down and see Des Lorkin if you are looking to buy or sell a house in the Carnegie/Glenhuntly area. Des has been a great supporter of the club for many years and his son Matt played with us some years back.

Go the Neg!
