CV 200 Club

200 Club

 

The Cricket Victoria 200 Club was introduced in 1985. At that time eligibility was limited to players who had participated in a combined total of at least 200 VCA 1st XI, Victorian first-class and Test matches. Umpires were admitted in 1994-95 and, in September 2004, the membership criteria was expanded to also include Domestic One-Day matches for Victoria and One-Day Internationals. In July 2008, CV club scorers to meet the criteria were also included.




In August 2012, following a further review of the eligibility criteria, approval for the inclusion of matches completed as non-playing coach at Premier and State levels was endorsed by the CV Board. This resulted in eleven further members being admitted - Anthony Amalfi, Greg Booth, Ian Callen, John Harmer, Greg Hobba, Bob Lloyd, Steve Maddocks, Jack Potter and James Sutherland. Also qualifying were Bernie Considine and Peter Dymond, both of whom have unfortunately passed away. All eleven were officially inducted at the annual CV 200 Club Dinner, held in February 2013.




During the 2017-18 season the criteria was expanded further to include T20 matches at international and interstate level. This has been done retrospectively and, for the first time, women players were included. The inaugural women's inductees were Kelly Applebee, Kristen Beams, Briana Binch, Jess Duffin, Sarah Elliott, Cathryn Fitzpatrick, Julie Hunter, Emma Inglis, Mel Jones, Anna and Meg Lanning, Emily McIntyre and Clea Smith. There will clearly be a lot more women eligible for CV 200 Club membership and these players, coaches, umpires and scorers will be inducted as the research into the history of Women's Premier Cricket evolves.




In addition to the 13 women above, other inductees at the 2017-18 function were Tim Sheehan, Clint McKay, Tom Donnell, Glenn Lalor, Michael Hill, Gavin Kellar and David King.




In 2018-19 a further 15 players, coaches and scorers were inducted at the CV 200 Club Dinner at the ODI on 18 January, 2019. Peter di Venuto, Keith Jansz, Andrew Walton, Carl Sandri, Cassie Brock, Molly Strano, Kath Hempenstall, Glenn Davey, Barry Neivandt, Peter Handscomb, Scott Boland, Elyse Villani, Jon Holland, Brett Forsyth and James Nanopoulos were all inducted.




While it was not possible to stage a 200 Club function in 2019-20, firstly due to no scheduling of an ODI in Melbourne and, secondly due to the early abandonment of the season due to Covid-19, a further 24 new 200 Club members have been welcomed into the elite group. Further research into past records of Women's Premier Cricket revealed that Brooke McFarlane, Natalie Challis, Rachael Haynes, Lynn Denholm, Karen Brown, Julie Calvert, Jane Franklin, Kerry Saunders, Julie Savage, Stephanie Theodore, Raelee Thompson, Sharon Tredrea, Ando Aparo and Natasha Noblett have all qualified. Also included were two former players who have passed away - Betty Wilson and Joyce Bath.




In addition, present-day players Adam Bull, Anna O'Donnell, Meagan Ciavarella, Amy Vine, Penelope Cleghorn, Travis Dean, Alana King, Dan Sartori, Tom Stray, Evan Gulbis, James Pattinson and Natalie Schilov qualified during the 2019-20 season.



Season 2020-21 saw further updates on Domestic Women's Career Records, with updating seeing two further past players added to the CV 200 Club in Jenny Howe (dec) and Anne Gordon, whilst current players Thomas Smyth and Danielle Montague and umpires Phil Gillespie and Dale Ireland also reached the milestone.

 

Season 2021-22 again saw further information come to light with regards to VWCA Pennant match records between 1944 and 1963 plus revision of equivalent records for select players between 1963 and 1980, enabling another 10 further past players from the VWCA to become eligible, with new inductees identified being Dawn Rae (nee Adams), Shirley Banfield, Sharyn Hill (nee Fitzsimmons), Margaret Jennings and Ruth Buckstein, with posthumous inductions also being made to Ivy Williams, Val Batty, Una Paisley, Elaine Bray and Billie Pitman (nee Hargraves). Cricket Victoria thanks CV Life Members Robyn Calder and Jill Crowther for the supply of the information.


In addition, present-day players Hayden Butterworth, Dylan Kight, Joseph Loorham and Brendan Walsh all qualified for the CV 200 Club in season 2021-22, as did current Frankston Peninsula Coach and former Dandenong player Paul Boraston. Former Hawthorn-East Melbourne scorer Laurie Root (dec) was also inducted after information supplied by fellow CV 200 Club Member Craig Reece.
