After resuming cricket post WW I, the Club played ‘arranged’ matches  in 1920/21.

Arranged matches were played again in 1927/28 when the majority of Club members turned out for the Ferntree Gully chapter of the United Ancient Order of Druids (U.A.O.D.). This occurred when a dispute with the RDCA went unresolved at the end of the 1926/27 season and the members vowed not to re-affiliate with the Competition in 1927/28.
