Nunawading Cricket Club

Mick McLachlan

 Mick McLachlan

During his years at Nunawading, Mick served both on and off the field, captained the seconds and thirds, was junior coach for many years, and also Chairman of Selectors. 

Mick won the First XI bowling average in 1961/62 and 1964/65, including a First XI career best of 7/15 (with 5/19 in the second innings).  Mick also won the D1 batting average in 1993/94, some 30 years later.  He also played in First XI premierships in 1960/61 and 1965/66, taking 6/65 in the semi. 

His commitment to Nuna was total, even extending to travelling back from work in Echuca to play cricket (and to catch up with the wife and kids!).  

Ten years later Mick further served the club in the 1998/99 and 1999/2000 seasons as Chairman of Selectors and Trainer to the First XI.  Mick played in the 6ths in the early rounds of that year to fill in due to early season player shortage.  He was 66 years old. 

Mick was awarded Life membership in 1972.  The NCC Honour Board (which Mick originally built) is named in his honour. 

Mick truly was a legend of the club.
