Vale Tim Dodgson

Carnegie Cricket Club is deeply saddened with the passing of Former Head Senior Coach, 2nd XI Premiership player, 3rd XI Captain, Committee Member, Chairman of Selectors, Head of Recruitment and Team Mate – Tim Dodgson.
Tim came to our club in 2012/13 Season as a Head Senior Coach. It didn’t take long before he stood on people’s toes, told things how they were, and ruffled a few feathers. But Tim immediately infiltrated our hearts and became a close friend to many here, and continued to do so over the years. His personality and character was one of a kind, he drew people together and introduced groups of friendships. Cricket was a huge part of his life, and we were blessed that Tim chose to return Carnegie Cricket Club when he shifted to Murrumbeena. His input into our Junior Development Team will no doubt pave the way for current and future Carnegie Cricket Club Juniors to move forward in their cricketing careers for years to come.
We are all going to miss taking the field in the future without standing next to him in the slips or watching him playing cut shots to every type of delivery. All Carnegie Cricket Club Teams will move heaven and earth together to take home the Premierships in Tim’s Honour.
Off field Tim was larger than life and he was always around to offer advice or have a drink and a laugh at the bar.
Tim has been taken far too soon, everybody will miss Tim. The whole Cricket Club is still devastated with the news of his passing. Tim will forever be in the hearts of Carnegie Cricket Club.
Our thoughts are also with Danni, Molly, Zac and Lily. The club will be there for all of you.
Rest In Peace, Tim Dodgson, You will be sadly missed. 🕊

On To 2021

We would like to thank those who were able to attend our Seniors presentation night recently held at bad Shepherd from last season which was a good to finally get some closure the 2019/20 season. Well done to all our award winners on a stellar season with either the bat or ball.

We would also like to thank all parents & carers of junior players, junior players, senior men & women players, spectators, sponsors and all our past players for being patient with us as our season is unrolling before us.

We have had many hurdles to overcome this season in regards to covid 19, our rooms currently under construction/renovation and operating out of portable sheds. While things are a little crazy at times the committee & club officials are trying their best to make Koornang Park & Lord Reserve as homely as we can on both Saturdays and Sundays until works are completed. We have recently updated the software on the scoreboard and can now stream BBL and test cricket so keep your ears peeled on when games will be streamed on the scoreboard.

Things to come in the new year will be our Major Raffle, which was postponed last season, with a new date to be confirmed shortly. Another round of Carnegie lotto will be held soon, due to popular demand, after the first round before Christmas. Our other major function, the Trivia Night is in negotiations with council about an offsite premise for us to host our fun night for all.

Key Dates for returning for the weeks of training (please attend on your regular day of training):

Whilst many of us will be enjoying some rest and relaxation, many Carnegie junior players will be playing representative cricket and we wish them all the best for their respective tournaments.

Carnegie Cricket Club would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe new year and hope you all are spending it with someone you love. We all look forward to seeing you healthy and fit in January.

From President Stuart Easton and the Committee
Carnegie Cricket Club

Covid-19 Safety

As a club we are fully committed to providing a safe environment for members of our club (volunteers, players, families, spectators) and the wider community and are committed to providing quality practices in line with guidance available from Sport Australia, Cricket Australia, Cricket Victoria, our local council, the Victorian State Government / Department of Health & Human Services and other relevant authorities applicable to our club.

We acknowledge that Cricket in a pandemic is a privilege, not a right. We all need to ensure we are all doing the right thing to ensure the safety of players, volunteers, officials and the local community which is paramount in the current climate.

The committee has adopted the attached Return to Train and Play document which outlines the roadmap for return to community cricket.

We would appreciate it if everyone could have a good read and understand the requirements especially as we near training. The protocols are quite clear and we would like everyone’s support in ensuring the plan is followed and adhered to.

Senior Registrations, Fees Structure and Return to Play for Season 2020/21

Men’s Senior Fees 2020/21

We have now opened registrations for senior men’s cricket for the coming season. We have made some changes to the subscription fees structure to allow for any potential further changes or shortening of the coming season due to Covid-19. As most would know we have always had a payment plan option, this will be the system we use for senior men’s cricket for this season. The reason for this is actual length of the season could change so we have to remain dynamic and using the payment plan this season allows for this. As usual the 1st instalment must be paid to take to the field. Below is the breakdown of the amount of days of cricket played that trigger each instalment to be paid.

1-6 Days of play, 1 Instalment
7-13 Days of play, 2 Instalments
14+ Days of play, 3 Instalments

Instalment charges for Men’s Cricket for Season 2020/21

Senior Student $120 each Instalment
Senior Men $190 each Instalment

Juniors Playing Senior Men’s Cricket for Season 2020/21

Many older juniors and parents would be aware that there will be a junior development side in CSB Div 4 this season. Also, we have added an enhanced pathway up through the senior grades. The option for Juniors playing in senior men’s cricket is also open now, this is a flat $100 once off payment on top of the junior players fees but this is paid separately under the “Senior Cricket” option.

Women’s Senior Fees Season 2020/21

Women’s senior cricket registrations are also open. At this stage all indications are that season 2020/21 will be the same length as last season so the once off payment of $120.00 remains unchanged.

Why Register Now?

We need players to register now so we can finalise our team entries and ground bookings for this season. We expect now that Covid-19 cases are dropping fast that the actual pre-season and the season proper will all happen within a very short period of time. If everybody registers and then tries to make the 1st payment in the days leading up to the season start, it will make the committee and selection panels jobs very tough.

We also understand some players may be experiencing hardship during this time and the club understands this and if you are not in a position to pay your fees at the moment please still register (this option is available without paying) and reach out to Luke Meyer or Glenn Murphy to discuss how we can help.

Return To Play Update

The latest update from both the CSB and the MCA is that the season will commence on the 14th of November. All matches will be one day games. There will only be a short break at Xmas to maximise days of cricket and the MCA plans to hold GF’s on the 27th/28th March and the CSB 21st/22nd of March. The CSB have made plans to push the finals back a week if there is any further delay to the start of the season. Cricket Victoria appears to be working hard with the state government so I think at this stage these dates are coming from the most informed sources. As soon as structured club training is able to start (currently we are advised training can start from the 26th of October under covid safe conditions) we will update with further communication’s via email and our social channels.

Senior Mens & Womens Presentation Night 27/06/2020 Announced
