Swardeston to host MCC game


MCC logoSwardeston is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a game by the MCC.

Taking place on Wednesday 6 August with an 11am start, the MCC team wil be captained by Swardeston 1st XI captain and MCC member Mark Thomas.

Thomas said: “We are honoured to have been awarded the game and are very much looking forward to it.

“The team I have selected for MCC contains a number of very good cricketers from outside the county. I thought it was a great opportunity for us to show off the club.

“We are very much hoping that the game will become a permanent one on the MCC fixture list, which would see it return again in the 2016 season.”

Swardeston club captain Peter Thomas said: “We are hoping the weather will be kind to us on what we hope will be a memorable day. Spectators will be very welcome to come along and join us.”

MCC is the world’s most active cricket club, the owner of Lord’s Ground and the guardian of the Laws of the game. Founded in 1787, it has been recognised as the sole authority on the Laws of Cricket since its foundation.

MCC plays more matches than any other cricket club – around 480 against schools, universities and clubs in the UK, and between 20 and 30 as part of its overseas touring programme which aims to develop cricket abroad.
