Gormandale is situated approximately 18km East of Traralgon Victoria Australia.
A Cricket team was formed in the 1890's in the Gormandale area which played on Tim Hughe's
property at Crossover.
Up until the early 1890's the Club was known as the Crossover Cricket Club and
a few years later a pitch was placed on the present Recreation Reserve.
In the 1930's Gormandale joined the Traralgon and District Cricket Association but withdrew and
joined the Carrajung Hills Association, Between 1935 and 1939 the Club won three Premierships
and was in recess during the war years.
During the period of 1945 to 1962 the Club spent sometime playing in the T.D.C.A. and playing
in a social competition.
Early in the 1960's the Club joined the T.D.C.A. and entered a B Grade
team, also during the sixties and early seventies Gormandale proved to be a fiercely competitive and
highly successful Club winning Five Premierships and being runners up three times as well as
making a number of semi-finals appearance.
This continued success convinced the club to enter an A Grade team in the 1974-75 season,
the Club quickly established themselves as a most competitive team and reached the grand final
in 1976-77 only to see the final washed out.
Then came the end of the matting era when a synthetic surface was laid at the Recreation Reserve
the 1980's saw the establishment of a C Grade team, Junior teams and the Development of
excellent training and Club facilities at the Recreation Reserve.
The Club waited until 1982-83 for our first A Grade Premiership,
an exciting high scoring final saw Gormandale 9 for 496 defeat Imperial City 484.
In the 1980's C Grade won two Premierships one in the 1982-83 season and the other in 1986-87
season, B Grade also won in 1983-84 season.
In the early 1990's the Club ventured on the task of establishing Turf Wickets at the Reserve and
in season 1992-93 A Grade won their second Premiership.
In 1994-95 B Grade won their seventh Premiership.
In 1996 a new ground was built alongside the main oval as
part of the new school providing more of an
opportunity to play at home.
Also in the 1996/97 season, A grade made it to the Semi Final being beaten by 6 runs, and the B Grade team
went to the Grand Final only to be beaten as well, "Very Disappointing".
1997/98 season A Grade went one better winning the semi final against Toongabbie at Churchill which put
them in the Grand final against Ex Student, the team played hard but was beaten by the better team on the weekend.
1998-99 was a very average season for the Club, with losing some players early in the season.
