About Our Club
Established in 1886 the East Doncaster Cricket Club has always had a strong presence within the Manningham Community. Our cricket home “Zerbes Reserve” is a renowned community recreation reserve located in Doncaster East and features one of the most impressive turf cricket grounds and pavilion in the ECA. We currently field five senior sides and two Veterans teams (U40s and U50s), with our First XI competing in the ECA Dunstan Shield. Our junior program consists of two Under 10 teams, an Under 12’s team and a Woolworths Blast program.
The Club’s success in recent years has included the second IX winning the B turf premiership in 2015/16, our Over 50’s Vets winning their second premiership in 2017/17, a fifth XI premiership in 2017/18 and our first IX winning their second Dunstan Shield Premiership in 2018/19, and third Dunstan Shield Premiership in 2020/21! In 2019/20, English import Joe Kendall, became the first East Doncaster player to be named the winner of the Dunstan Medal for the Best & Fairest player in the highest turf grade.
We warmly welcome all new players across all teams, standards and age groups. East Doncaster CC is a community club with a strong focus on its immediate and wider reaching community. Throughout the season the Club regularly hosts social events for its members, family and friends, and supports a number of local charities. The East Doncaster CC is generously supported by a number of valued sponsors, and has a long history with the Doncaster East Bendigo Bank which has contributed more than $250,000 in sponsorship to the club over the past 15 years.
