Old Mentonians Cricket Club’s first season in Cricket Southern Bayside was a highly successful one. 15 wins and only one loss saw them finish on top of the Div 2 (One day comp), where they progressed to the finals. Their success continued and they defeated Kingston Hawthorn in the Grand Final to make the 16/17 campaign one to remember. Daniel Hull was a key figure in the championship winning batting line up, hitting three half centuries and making 346 runs in the Southern Bayside comp. Sam Brown was a key bowler, taking 23 wickets with a season best of 4/21. Following the achievements of the one day team, Old Mentonians decided to return to two-day cricket and will have a side competing in Division one. In addition, the club has appointed a new 1st XI captain to help lead the two-day side. Darcy Brown, who debuted with Old Mentonians in 2008 has played 106 matches and has taken a large number of wickets.
