The move to Mullum Mullum

In 1970 Norwood made the move from Norwood High School to Mullum Mullum Reserve, changing our Name to Norwood Cricket Club at the same time.

1st Eleven began playing at Mullum on a share basis with the St Andrews CC in the 1980 season and the club changed its name to the Norwood Cricket Club in that season.
