Home to the MCC
Cricket Club, Aberdeenshire
Welcome to Methlick Cricket Club and the 2016 season.
Hello and welcome to the Methlick cricket clubs' web site.
behalf of our President Lord Aberdeen and all of us here at Methlick
you for taking a look at the MCC website and a warm welcome to anyone
considering joining our club and a very warm welcome to existing
players to the 2016 season.
At the time of writing (February) we await the Aberdeen Grades Association to publish the fixtures list but suffice to say at this stage that we will be fielding two teams this season as usual. The first team will compete in Grade II and the second team in Grade IV.
Both of these teams have the potential to top their respective grades so it will be an interesting and fun season.
We have also a planned tour to Holland to play three games (leave ABZ 31 July returning Friday the 5th August). The last time we toured, we enjoyed the cricket almost as much as the social side!!!!! A great success. If you would like to go, talk to Jay at the Ythanview or indeed any of the teams.
The summer Gala is fixed for the 28 of August 2016 so make that a date in your diary. The annual Sporting Dinner is awaiting our intended Guest Speaker to get back to us with a date. You will know the name and you will enjoy hearing him speak, he has had us all falling off our chairs with laughter before!
As always may I use this message to ask for more players to come and join us. We always welcome joiners and especially youngsters keen to try the game of cricket. Jamie Jones our Junior Section Leader is an ECB qualified coach and we have in place all the regulatory folk to assist, monitor and guide our players whatever age they be.
I would also like to open the invitation to help out to anyone who would and could assist with what I always call the “Third team”. That is the maintenance and ground staff side of getting a cricket pitch into shape after the rigours of winter. This year more than most after the flooding we had in Methlick. There is a huge amount of work that goes into producing what is universally acclaimed as the best village cricket ground in Aberdeenshire.
My very best wishes to all players and support for the 2016 season.
A crucial place for a drink, before, during and after matches all are welcome, details can be found
