The Executive Committee of Marlboro Cricket Club would like welcome back all players to what is building up as being an exciting season of cricket.
Training has begun in early September and the boys are set and raring to go.
The format for the Saturday Leagues has reverted back to the 40 over format only over two rounds, home and away. This is good news as MCC seemed to find it difficult in the shorter form of the game.
At the AGM held prior to the season, a new executive team has been nominated. The new committee is as follows:
CHAIRMAN: RASHAAD RAWAT
VICE CHAIRMAN: SHAHEEN VAWDA
SECRETARY: ISHAQ ISMAIL
TREASURER: SAFWAAN SALLOO
CO-OP MEMBER: AVINASH GOVEN
CO-OP MEMBER: NAEEM NATHIE
CO-OP MEMBER: ALI (NON SOUTH AFRICAN MEMBER!)
CAPTAIN SA6: EBRAHIM ESSOP
CAPTAIN SA7: SAFWAAN SALLOO
CAPTAIN SA8: ZIYAAD JOGEE
We would like to extend our warmest gratitude to outgoing chairman Zain Asmal, for his sterling work and dedication offered to the club during his tenure. The club has grown to its largest during this period and has left the club in good standing ging forward. However he is and always will be associated with club and will assist in an administrative level.
First league fixtures begin for all teams this weekend, 6th October. Teams are affiliated in the Saturday Six, Seven and Eight Leagues, with Sunday represented in the Five Limited overs format.
Heres wishing one and all a successful season with bat and ball, and perhaps some silverware to go with it at the end of the season.
