In the Diamond Valley Cricket Association Grand Final held on Saturday, 26th March, Riverside (aka Greensborough) beat Heidelberg 7/164 to 9/162.
Why are we telling you this?
Because the game was played at Eltham Central Park, which was chosen because of the quality of its facilities. In other words, the newly renovated venue that we share with Eltham Cricket Club, namely Eltham Central Pavilion, is now effectively the MCG of Diamond Valley!
The pitch invasion after the game (see the photo) didn’t quite match the one that happened after Buddy Franklin’s 1,000 goal in the AFL.
