As the 2016 Cricket Season draws to a close the members and officials at Mexborough Cricket Club can look back on a difficult but rewarding season. The weather has been terrible and all teams, from under 9 up to the first team, have suffered from cancelled away fixtures. However the hard-work and fundraising efforts of recent years left Mexborough fully equipped to ensure that every Senior home fixture was started- despite the weathers best attempts to force fixtures to be abandoned.
The Junior season ended a few weeks ago with the under 13s third in their division joint 2nd on points with Upper Haugh and only third due to Haugh having more completed fixtures. With only 2 more fixtures to play in the Senior leagues the First Team are in contention for back to back promotions only 1 point behind second place Fishlake. The Sunday team face two fixtures against league championship rivals Brodsworth. The second team manages to fulfil its role of developing Junior with regualr places for 2 under 15 players and 2 of the under 13s making senior debuts this season.
Increased success bring increased pressure and demands on club officials many of whom have to wear multiple caps. We are therefore looking to increase the number of officials on the committee.
