Melton Mowbray Cricket Club have had an amazing resurgence after many years in the cricketing wilderness to their promotion this weekend. The team has had an amazing spirit this year and the results have followed.
Melton’s Burrough League side also gained promotion this year to Division One and Meltons 2nd XI jumped an extra table position on the last game of the season for a more respectable finish.
Support has come from many volunteers who have worked hard in the background whilst other essential support has come from Sponsors.
Ketchup Marketing have been Melton 1st XI team Sponsor this year but they didn’t just donate they have helped put Melton Mowbray Cricket Club back on the map by crafting a high quality website which is loaded with information of the club.
Twinlakes, Melton Building Society and L & H Exhausts have all sponsored us this year and their contributions are helping Melton put together their first junior side for over 20 years.
Rupert Smallshaw first made contact with Darren Bicknell and The Belvoir Cricket Trust 2 years ago and after two full summers of fun cricket for the juniors Melton are ready to enter local leagues.
Darren Bicknell could see the level of support at the Club he invested 2 days of his personal time for a training school this summer and talked about its success at the recent Gala performace of the Ashes Play in Nottingham in early September.
Melton now have two qualified level one coaches and level two courses will be undertaken this autumn to keep the Club moving forward over the next few years.
Melton are investing more time into winter nets this year and hope to find enough space to bring on some junior hard ball training if the right venue and coaches are available.
All the sporting ventures at the All Englands Sports Ground are moving forward with the Darts team entering 2 sides in the winter league and the Pool team the Fuldericks still competing in Division One of the Melton Mowbray Pool League.
