THE SORRY STATE OF THE WICKET
A difficult season has come to an end.Bad weather compounded by mis-management and funding issues has made playing home matches rather difficult throughout the season.
Concerted efforts were made by individuals from MCC in this regard, however a grand total of just 4 games the entire season were played at the Marlboro Sports Complex.
The executive members are in consultation with the authorities, and are hoping to get the cricket pitch cordoned off for the next six months, giving it ample time to recover and the possible laying of a new wicket.Restoration of the practice nets too need to be looked at. Also with growing interest in cricket, and the possibility of fielding five teams in the 2010-2011 season, a second facilty will also be sought.
All associated with the club are urged to assist in whichever way possible to 'save' our "MCG" and do whatever it takes to restore this facility to its former glory.
