The MPCA would like to pass on the news that French Island Cricket Club Life Member Dianne Spark, was recently awarded an OAM for service to the community of French Island.

Incredibly, Dianne has served as Secretary of the club since 1978 and scorer since 1965. The OAM is appropriate recognition for a person that has worked tirelessly for her community.

Dianne’s volunteer work extends well beyond the Cricket Club and includes roles as Secretary of the French Island Hall Committee (since 1976), Secretary of the French Island Country Fire Authority (1980-1985), School President, Perseverance Primary School (1991-1999), and Foundation Member of the French Island Landcare Group, which was established in 1989.

The Board of the MPCA congratulate Dianne for her recent award and the magnificent community-based contributions she has made to the French Island community.

Absolute legend!!!

** VALE PETER FINNEY **

It is with sadness that the MPCA Board acknowledge the recent passing of one of the Peninsula’s finest cricketers and umpires, Peter Finney.

Peter made an incredible contribution to MPCA cricket as a player, coach, and umpire. He played for the Karingal Cricket Club for 8 seasons and spent 3 of those as Captain Coach. He then went on to Coach Heatherhill Cricket Club for two seasons and then coached the Heatherhill juniors for over 10 years. His efforts were recognised by Heatherhill when they awarded him Life Membership of the club. In his earlier days Peter also played Victoria Premier Cricket for Prahran as well as 10 seasons of cricket at Carnegie.
Peter spent an incredible 36 years as a cricket umpire, mainly in the MPCA, but he also umpired for two seasons in Premier Cricket. Highly regarded by all that had the pleasure to meet him, Peter will be sadly missed, but will always be remembered as one of the greats of the MPCA.

Our condolences go out to Peter’s children Anitia, Gareth, Jacinta, Karina, Amber and all of his grandchildren.

Peter’s funeral will be held at Tobin Brothers Mt Martha this Friday 31st May @ 2pm and followed by drinks at the Dava Hotel.

In the 1971/72 seasons Peter played against Flinders CC in the last Round of the season and scored 130 & took 6/48. Then backed up two games later in the GF against Flinders and scored 270no & 53 and took 3/74. Still turned up to BA Cairns Reserve over the last decade to have a Red. RIP Pete

Peter still holds the record for the most runs in one season. Over 1100. Also an outstanding baseball player . And a great fellow

Rest easy Peter. Turning up to a game of cricket and seeing Peter there to umpire the match always made it more enjoyable. Even though he gave batsmen the benefit of the doubt a lot more than I thought he should have 😉he was always my favourite umpire to play with and have a beer with.
