The Annual General Meeting also saw the elevation of one of our finest ever players/servants, Brendan McGuinness to Life Membership, becoming the 68th Life Member.

Having accumulated almost every individual and team award in a storied 11-year career at Oakleigh, including 2 x Val Holten Club Champion trophies, Victorian Sub District Cricket Association Team of the Year selection, VSDCA rep teams, including as Captain, 7 x First XI Batting awards, 4 x Pennant Premierships (2 as captain) & 4 x T20 Premierships, the club record First XI 1st wicket partnership record of 201, 156 First XI games (placing him 9th on the all time list) and 5,397 runs placing him first in the clubs long history.

BJ's impact was also felt as significantly off the field as well, driving standards as he led the club to a new level of professionalism, accelerating our digital presence, facilitating the introduction of Frogbox, our YouTube channel, setting up cloud storage and our website, introducing a suite of branded assets and templates, lining our social media accounts and driving engagement.

Additionally, Brendan has also been a dedicated and resilient champion of our long-standing ambitions to develop our tired social rooms and has opened many doors that see this dream now well underway to be completed in the near future.

All of these accolades sit very comfortably on a great of the Purple & Gold, and now he is formally and deservedly recognised with our highest honour.

Whilst BJ is not playing with us this year, he remains committed to the club and is continuing on the Board of Management.
