Reds Cricket Club is based in inner Melbourne, Australia. We field two teams in the Mercantile Cricket Association, a competitive park league based in the inner suburbs. We play on some of the city's prettiest grounds, most located a short distance from the Melbourne CBD.
Our club invites interested cricketers from the UK looking to live, work and play in Melbourne in 2019-20. We enjoy having English players at the Reds. We've hosted six over the past three seasons, all through Cricketer Exchange, with great success both on and off the field.
We're chiefly after batsmen to play in our First XI - but we'll consider anyone interested in joining us. You don't need to be a county or premier league standard player. Our league is competitive but would suit talented or emerging young players from second-tier leagues or lower divisions looking to challenge themselves in a different setting. We'll make sure you get plenty of opportunities and get the most out of a season 'Down Under'. We have a Youtube channel with match highlights that give some insight into our standard.
IMPORTANT: We are an amateur club playing in a league with strict rules about player payments. For this reason, we are not seeking professional players but young players on gap years or working holidays. We cannot offer payment or airfares, nor can we organise a visa to enter or work in Australia. We can, however, offer support in other ways, such as providing assistance finding work and accommodation.
If you'd like to know more, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
