Betty Wilson & Nell McLarty Medalists

The Betty Wilson Medal (awarded to the Best Player in the Women's 1st XI One Day Final) was first awarded in the 2009/10 season to recognise Betty's contribution to Women's Cricket in Victoria. Betty commenced playing at just 10 in 1931 and became a household name during the late 1940s and 1950s, representing Victoria and Australia as an enterprising all-rounder, with some of her on-field playing feats still unmatched in Test Cricket.   

The Nell McLarty Medal (awarded to the Women's 1st XI One Day Premiership Coach) was first awarded in the 2014/15 season in recognition of Nell's service to Women's Cricket in Victoria. Nell represented Victoria and Australia in the 1930s as a pace bowler, before health issues curtailed her playing career in 1941. Despite this setback, Nell passed on her knowledge to numerous players across the ensuing decades, becoming an unofficial 'coach' for many Victorian and Australian representatives.
