FIXTURES AND RESULTS

OUR TEAMS

Seniors

Playing from our home ground at Kevin Shorten Reserve, the Druids have four Senior Men’s teams playing in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association (VCTA) competition.  With a First XI premiership win and T20 champions in season 2018/19, the Druids were promoted into the VTCA’s Senior Division in season 2019/20, where we remain.

Our four VTCA Senior Men’s teams for season 2020/21 were:

  • Turner Shield Senior Division – 1stXI
  • Patrick Quinn Shield Senior Seconds – 2ndXI
  • Glen Scarborough Shield D2 – 3rdXI
  • Glen Scarborough Shield D2 – 4thXI

Our 1stand 2ndXI’s play a mixture of one day (40 overs) and two day (80 overs) cricket on Saturday afternoons from October through to March.

Our 3rdand 4thXI’s play in a one day (36 over) competition on Sunday afternoons from mid-October to mid-February.  These teams provide opportunities for a range of ability levels, and best suit those wishing to improve their skills, players returning to cricket from some time out, junior players looking to transition into senior cricket and parents / junior coaches who are looking for a little time in the middle themselves.

An additional senior team and an inaugural women’s team are planned for the 2021/22 season.
