AUSTRALIA captain Steve Smith capped off an incredible year after winning Australia’s highest cricketing honour, the Allan Border Medal. Re-live here!

    SOCCEROOS coach Ange Postecoglou believes it may have put a dampener on the tournament if the Socceroos hadn’t reached the Asian Cup final.

    ANDY Murray has produced an Australian Open masterclass, subjecting Nick Kyrgios to a grand slam lesson in the nuances of professionalism.

    SO close they can almost touch it, the Socceroos are on the verge of conquering Asia. Ange Postecoglou’s side is in the final of the Asian Cup.

    HAD Andy Murray not proven handy with a racquet it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine him carving out a successful career as an undertaker.

    WOMCC Committee vacancy

    Are you interested in joining the committee of this dynamic, diverse and interesting group that promotes women’s involvement in the MCC and supports the development of disadvantaged women and girls through sport?

    The Women of MCC Committee meets 6–8 times a year, usually in the early evening. View our charter and goals.

    Members of the WOMCC committee vary in background and careers.  All are passionate about their sport, and are regular attendees at MCG events and MCC functions.  We aim to plan or be a key partner in four events per year.

    Through these events, we have raised money and supported a range of organisations using sport to develop confidence and skills of girls and women. 

    These include Harmony 8 Cricket, The Catherine Freeman Foundation, The River Nile Organisation, Onside Victoria, and most recently, Sporting Camps for Women Paralympians.

    This year we will be supporting Dare to Dream, a program working in partnership with YWCA (Victoria) and Westside Circus and also supported by the Melbourne Football Club.

    The program aims to assist girls and young women in building their self esteem and instilling in them an “anything is possible” attitude.

    To apply, please email a brief response and CV to chair Kerri Spillane prior to Friday January 27, 2012.
