Methlick Cricket Club
On behalf of our President, Lady Aberdeen, and the members and players of Methlick CC, welcome to the start of another season of cricket in Methlick.
With only a few weeks until the action starts, Lairds will shortly start coming to life. Nets to be put up, seed to be sown and the first cuts of grass will shortly take place. You may have noticed the new scoring hut being built which is now ready. Winter nets for the juniors has been taking place every Sunday morning on the MUGA and has been so well attended (considering it’s outdoors and it’s Winter!) with an age group of 5 to 18. If any youngsters are interested in learning the game please feel free to come along at 1100.
For the adults we are looking at two friendlies in April including the Brigg’s Bowl, courtesy of ex- chairman Nigel Briggs, which is an inter-club opener and a very sociable affair with a barbecue post game at the Ythan View. The two teams play for a trophy and the honour of opening a nice bottle of malt donated by Nigel. This match is open to anyone that wants to take part, regardless of ability, and is a great way to meet the members and players of MCC, and kicks of the cricket year for us.
The season proper begins 30th April with the fixtures yet to be confirmed. Practice traditionally starts when the clocks go forward at 6 pm on Wednesdays. We have two senior teams and the Juniors. We also run a badminton club and our latest venture ,MCCMCC, which is a hill walking section. The only rule here being that the walk has to finish at a pub.
As the year progresses I will keep you updated and events we organise and progress of the teams through match reports.
We look forward to a great year ahead and welcome anyone that wants to be involved in the friendliest club in the Shires.
