As VMCU Carnival heads into finals, time to celebrate community cricket and the wonderful spirit of volunteerism

Ten teams represented the ECA, five make semi-finals

Played in the right spirit

Celebrating volunteerism

As the VMCU Cricket Carvinal heads into the finals, The ECA Executive congratulates all the players, coachers, managers, umpires, grounds-staff and supporters for their outstanding efforts over the past two weeks. On the field we have seen great cricket played by the best junior players across metropolitan Melbourne.  It has been particularly pleasing to see how well our ECA sides have competed and how they have conducted themselves.
Off the field, we have seen the best of community cricket -  volunteers and supporters taking time off work, families interrupting summer holidays and people pitching in everywhere to ensure the players have a great experience.  Our host clubs have extended their great hospitality and curators have gone to extraordingary lengths to ensure all the grounds have been at their best.
The VMCU Carnival is a celebration of community cricket. It requires the committment of so many volunteers to put on the show.  We are so grateful for all their efforts.  Thanks to Paddy and Lisa for an outstanding carnival.  Five ECA teams will play Semi-Finals today - we wish them the very best.
