Fourth XI MVP - Rick Moran Trophy

In 2010/11, the Under 17 MVP trophy was named after President Rick Moran who had contributed a significant amount to junior cricket at Golden Grove. In 2019/20, the Club Committee (minus one notable exception) voted that due to GGCC not having an Under 17 team since 2015/16 and the change to an Under 18 competition, the Rick Moran Trophy shall no longer be awarded to the Under 17 MVP.  From the 2019/20 season, the Fourth XI Most Valuable Trophy shall be named the Rick Moran Trophy to recognise Rick’s contribution to the lower grades. This decision was made before the Club was forced to withdraw the Fourth XI from the competition due to a lack of numbers.

Some of Rick’s stats at the tiume the trophy was renamed:

  • President since 2007/08
  • Life Member induction 2015/16
  • FC induction 2009/10
  • George Eden Trophy winner 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11, 2012/13, 2014/15
