Melton Mowbray Cricket Club needed a change of venue for its annual awards evening because of its expanding membership.
With the pavilion at their All England Sports Ground now too small to host a big club gathering, the annual presentation evening for the club’s senior and junior sides was held at the Conservative Club.
The club is beginning to reap the benefits of our junior section set-up, launched less than a decade ago, with many of the age group cricketers now regulars in the Melton senior teams.
Girls’ cricket is also taking off at Melton, while several junior players have graduated to the Leicestershire CCC county age group programme.
The club will again field teams in all age groups next year and welcome new players.
