St Andrews Cricket Club Pascoe Vale aims to be the club where everyone is welcome, has fun and plays their best cricket.
St Andrews Cricket Club Pascoe Vale was founded in 1934 by parishioners of St Andrews, Pascoe Vale. In recent years we’ve experienced consistently good results with regular finals and premierships.
We field four open age sides, three turf in the VCTA (www.vtca.asn.au) and one synthetic in the NWMCA (http://nwmca.vic.cricket.com.au) catering to competitive and social players alike.
We also have a number of growing juniors sides and conduct a MILO in2CRICKET program (www.playcricket.com.au/learn/in2cricket).
A brief history:
The club was formed in 1934 as a social activity by members of the Presbyterian Church, located on the corner of Cumberland Rd and Westgate Street. The cricket club began playing in the Coburg District Cricket Association.
Games were played on a paddock in Westgate Street, before moving to Brearley Reserve and eventually to the current home of the Club at Cole Reserve in Cumberland Rd.
Apart from a brief period during WW11, the Club has played continuously since 1934, and this year is celebrating its 80th year in existence.
The Club is no longer officially connected with the church, the break occurring when the Club decided that it needed to make alcohol available to the players, both as a fund raiser and for social demands as times changed.
The Club did not enjoy much on field success in the early years, winning its first premiership in 1963 when it defeated Pascoe vale RSL in the C grade of the CDCA.
This situation has changed and the Club has become much more competitive, winning 4 consecutive A Grade flags from 1980 through to and including 1984, defeating Lincoln Mill (x 2), Merlynston and Glenroy in those matches.
In total, the Club has now been successful in 28 premierships across all Grades.
The One Day side won 7 successive flags between 2004 and 2011. The Junior sides were also successful in winning premierships, most recently in the U16’s 4 years ago.
The Club prides itself in its long history of offering a meaningful activity for local youth. We enjoy the support of local business houses who assist the Club to meet the ever – growing financial costs associated with the running of a junior sporting club.
We are a responsible community organisation holding a level 3 Good Sports accreditation, and support the Pink Stumps Day program which raises funds for research into breast cancer.
Persons interested in learning to play cricket or wishing to participate in any of our Club activities will find further details within this site on how to get involved in our on or off field activities.
We also have a social golf club.
