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 three Dunstan Shield flags in 2008/09, 2018/19 and 2020/21, 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.
In 2022/23 the club fielded four senior sides, including two playing turf on Saturdays, a Sunday turf side, one LOC Saturday team, an Over 50's Veteran side and an Over 60's Veteran side, which was the first time we entered a side in that age division. We fielded five junior sides, and continued to run the Woolworth's Cricket Blast programs for beginners.
We look forward to an exciting and successful season in 2023/24.
