Welcome to a new season at Methlick Cricket Club from the President, Lord Aberdeen, our committee and all players and members.
We have a new committee with myself as Chairman, being elected for a second year. My vice chair is Stuart Anderson. Steve Murphy stepped down as first team captain to concentrate on his umpiring which is giving greater awareness of MCC at a national level, but Steve will continue as a committee member and occasional player. Tim Duffy takes over as club Captain with Jamie Jones as Vice. In the seconds we remain the same with Rob Fryer as Captain and Grant Cordiner as his Vice Captain.
Charlie and Neil have been extremely hard at work with the preparation of the ground for the new 2018 season. With the continued spell of great weather the wicket and outfield look marvellous. Thanks also go to everyone else that has helped in preparation for the season.
Our Gala Day grows in popularity year-on-year, taking place on 1st September at Lairds, and Liz Shepherd organises the increasingly popular Ladies Day in June.
So there's plenty of cricket and post-match analysis over refreshments at The View, and many events through the year.
Here’s to an excellent 2018.
