Avondale Heights finished in the middle of B section, with Glenn Groves and Darren McCauley being better performed final year players, Darren playing early combined games.
Airport West-St. Christophers lost the last game to unexpectedly miss the finals in B section.
Craigieburn were probably a bit better that their 9th in B section. Luke Springhall was a member of the Tullamarine team.
Doutta Stars finished a disappointing second last in B section. Dale Handley usually opened the batting for the IACC team.
East Keilor showed a few times that they could bat but finished bottom of an even C section. Eddie Hunter's undefeated 194 was the highest individual score in any grade.
Flemington started slowly but eventually had a big impact on the make up of the B section finals. Kori Campbell and David Dowling were better performed players, with David playing in an early combined games.
Glenroy Amateurs lost the C section grand final by 9 runs. Jason Smith is widely seen as the best of their core group of players.
Greenvale won a tight C section grand final. Ashley Weidner played in the IACC and other combined games.
Jacana were often competitive in A section but finished last after a couple of talented players decided to return to their original club a couple of games into the season.
Clinton Stuart was runner up in the bowling and qualified for batting averages, played for Essendon Dowling Shield and was joint captain of the Tullamarine team, of which Joe Randello, who came third in the bowling averages, was also a member.
Steve Maitland was a key member and in many ways the senior figure of the IACC and other combined teams.
Matthew Wilson was a key member of the IACC team where he had more opportunity to bowl than he could get in club matches.
Strathmore was the stand out club in the age group, winning their first A section flag for 20 years as well as winning B section with a team of predominantly first year players and fielding a third team which made the finals in C section.
Adiel Abela was runner up in the batting averages to cap off an outstanding junior career.
Andrew Prowse identified himself as an outstanding prospect in the finals series with a match winning innings in the semi and a man-of-the-match all round performance in the grand.
Taylors Lakes was a big improver, finishing a strong third in A section and making Strathmore really earn their grand final berth, as well as fielding a second team which made the finals in C section.
Glenn Sullivan had not played competitive cricket previously but was soon seen to be as good as any quick and a key member of the IACC and other combined teams.
Shane Lee qualified for the batting averages, played for the Tullamarine team and was the best performed player in the IACC team.
Shaun Borg was man of the match in the losing semi and an outstanding captain of the IACC team, earlier combined teams, and his club team.
Tullamarine gave the powerful Strathmore second team a real run for their money in their B section semi, despite having struggled with numbers at times.
Westmeadows did not have enough depth of talent to make the finals in C section.
