The 2014 season was successful for Melton Mowbray Cricket Club as pretty much everything went to plan.
Our 1st XI were successfully promoted to Division 3, captained by Pete Humphries with Overseas player Matt Worsnop contributing over 1000 runs. Our 2nd XI maintained their position in Division 8 whilst good mid table finishes for our Sunday XI and Burrough League sides were a good environment for many of our young players to experience Senior Cricket and they proved up to the task.
There were many notable performances but special mention has to go to Karl Tew with 9 for 13 against
Thorpe Arnold and 7 for 12 against Burbage, a 5 wicket haul for Ben Redwood and centuries for both Gary Potter and Paul Stevenson.
The start of the season saw the installation of new decking and access ramp at the clubhouse and it was enjoyed by all the teams and visitors to the club throughout the year.
The junior section has gone from strength to strength in 2014 There were four teams competing, an Under 11’s, Under 13’s and two U10’s teams.
In the middle of summer Melton Hosted their Annual 3 day Academy that saw an international flavour to the Coaching lineup including Darren Bicknell and Overseas player Matt Worsnop.
We continued our partnership with Darren Bicknell and the Belvoir Castle Cricket Trust. There was coaching for 20-40 children each week throughout the summer.
