Player Testimonials

 

"The MCC Club XI is a fantastic initiative. It allows cricketers who genuinely enjoy the game to play a great standard and on some of the most beautiful grounds in Melbourne.... ".  Stephen Mellick, MCC Club XI cricketer

 

 “Having young sons and a daughter who enjoy a hit of cricket in the nets, it’s been fun to roll the arm over occasionally. I noticed a “call for new players” for the Club XI Cricket Competition in the MCC Newsletter in August last year – despite not having played competitive cricket since AB was Test skipper, I decided to respond. Having played last season, it’s been terrific fun and a very rewarding experience....".  John Jackson, MCC Club XI cricketer
