Club Legend - Darren Milne

Doug Milne and his family had moved into Vermont South in 1975. His son Darren played his first 2 years of cricket with the Parkmore Primary School team. On turning 10, Darren wished to play for a "real club", and it was in this year the Vermont South Cricket Club was starting. Doug took Darren to junior practice for the 1977 season. Darren commenced in the Under 12's as a foundation member of the club.

Darren proceeded to play 55 games for the junior section of the club going right through to the Under 16's. In the 1981/82 season Darren was a member of the club's first ever junior premiership side in the Under 16B grade.

Darren never missed going to watch Doug play in the seniors on a Saturday afternoon until in 1980/81 Darren commenced playing senior cricket while still playing Under 14's.
