Four Premierships to Nuna
In what was arguably the best day in the 90 year history of the Nunawading Cricket Club, on Saturday March 19, we won senior premierships in Howard Wilson Shield (First XI), B Grade (Second XI) and C Grade (Third XI) on top of the Under 16A Premiership a few days earlier. This sees our First XI return to Macintosh Shield grade for the first time since 2004-5 and unprecedented success across the club. We have now won 8 premierships in the last 3 seasons, more than the last 20 seaons combined.
It has been an amazing turnaround since the doldrum days only 3 seasons ago when our First XI played in B Grade. We now look forward to the future with excitement, and perhaps a little trepidation, as we return to playing in higher grades where we have historically played.
We as a club should be happy and feel rewarded that the hard work of so many people has paid off but never be satisfied as there is always improvement in all of us. So onwards and upwards for the mighty Nuna-boys !

Fathers and Sons and Daughters at Nuna
Valentines Day 2016 saw the Nuna community venture to Morton Park, Blackburn to play two father-son-daughter games for the Paul Callanan Cup, in recognition of the great service Paul Callanan snr has provided to both clubs. It was a great day with thanks to Blackburn CC for their hospitality. It was a win a piece with the Nuna U16 Father/Son team playing excellent cricket and the Nuna Under 14 Father-Son-Daughter team showing us a glimpse of the great talent being developed at Nuna. No doubt a couple of the Dads struggled the next morning !
