Malvern Record Stands Test of Time


The Malvern Lacrosse Club holds one of the most outstanding records in world sport, achieved not once but twice - a run of ten consecutive senior-grade premierships.

The first ten year run was 1931-40 when Malvern defeated MCC (1931-34), Williamstown (1935-38), Camberwell (1939) and Glen Iris (1940) on their way to ten wins on the trot.  They were led initially by the legendary Jack Beattie who captained Victoria for 12 years and dominated the VLA goal-scoring as an unstoppable crease man playing at First Home.

After World War II, Malvern re-emerged as the powerhouse club winning another run of ten consecutive "A" Grade premierships from 1950-59 and beating Old Trinity(1950), Caulfield (1951,53,55,58-59) and MHSOB (1952,54,56-57). with a team that comprised names that are still seen around lacrosse or have current sons or grandsons playing or coaching.   - Charlie Middleton, Trevor Campbell, Jim Daw, Roy Sloggett, Graeme Reddaway, Noel Jeffrey, John Neilson.
