The Mt Eliza Cricket Club Heritage Club
The Mount Eliza Cricket Club’s Heritage Club is a volunteer group run by Mount Eliza Cricket Club past and current players. Through the organisation and promotion of various events each year the Heritage Club provides opportunities for current and past players, administrators and supporters to join together to maintain friendships and support the club.
Our objective is to bring people together from different eras that have represented or supported the Mt Eliza Cricket Club and to ensure that important items of the clubs history are recognised and secured. We plan to achieve this by:
- Building and maintaining a database of past and current Mounties to facilitate regular communication related to important club news and events.
- Organising and promoting events to encourage past and current Mounties to gather together to support the club.
- Fostering the camaraderie which exists between Mount Eliza cricketers past and present to ensure mutual support continues both on the ground and off.
- Locating and securing important items of the clubs rich history.
- Raising funds through various activities with proceeds directed back to important club facility improvements and other Heritage Club projects.
About Mt Eliza Cricket Club
The Mount Eliza Cricket Club has a proud and successful history, dating back to the Club’s inauguration in the 1920s. Initially a small, seaside village, Mount Eliza hosted one team during the inter-war period, enjoying premiership success in 1927. The Club disbanded during World War II, and reformed in the late Forties to ultimately become a powerhouse in Mornington Peninsula Cricket winning 58 senior and 20 junior premierships to this day.
Throughout its history, the Mount Eliza Cricket Club has had more than its share of premiership success, individual brilliance and above all, camaraderie. The Mount Eliza Cricket Club is truly blessed to have brought together such a vast array of cricketing talent and cricketing characters. The Heritage Club enthusiastically embraces its role to keep the memories of these great times alive whilst supporting the club and current players as they write new chapters of our history.
