East Doncaster Cricket Club
Community Based Cricket Club in East Doncaster
A club with a rich history
Established in 1886 the East Doncaster Cricket Club has always had a strong presence within the Manningham Community. Having grown from a small club back in the 1900's made up of mostly local fruit-growing families, it has matured into one of the most successful clubs in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Our on ground success has seen us secure almost seventy premierships including two Dunstan Shield flags in 2008/09 and 2018/19, as well as the development of dozens of junior representative players, some of whom have gone on to represent Victoria at an under age level.
As a sporting club we are strongly and actively involved in our local community developing partnerships with Onemda and Doncare, as well providing cricket clinics to many local primary schools. We are also very proud of our long standing partnership with the Doncaster East Community Bank.
The 20/21 season sees the club fielding five senior sides, three of which are in turf competitions, two LOC Saturday teams, an Over 40's Veteran side and an Over 50's Veteran side, along with several junior sides, and running the Woolworth's Cricket Blast programs for beginners.Our Club
