to Milland Cricket Club – better known throughout the local area as the MCC.
Where the original MCC can be dated back to 1787, we can only boast cricket
being played here since the 1940's. Some of those players are still about, and
believe they could show this new generation of players a thing or two! Our
MCC's role remains as relevant as the real MCC. From guarding the games spirit
to promoting cricket to young people, Milland Cricket Club is committed to the
good and the fun of the game.
is situated on the proximity of three counties, West Sussex, Hampshire and
Surrey. Located in what has been designated an area of outstanding natural
beauty and officially part of the Sussex Downs, the ground, known amongst the
players, as the "Field of Dreams" couldn't ask for a better place to
host its games. Our approach to cricket at Milland is relaxed; we like to
enjoy the game with cold Scrumpy and in a friendly atmosphere. The games our
typically played in a forty-over format with the mid-way break offering a
wonderful spread of sandwiches, cakes and a nice cup of Yorkshire tea, or the aforementioned
part of the clubs desire to show its appreciation for former players, the club
plays an annual match, "The Mick Laycock Memorial Ashes", played
between Milland and The Skulking Loafers, in memory of a dear friend and a
great club member to both clubs.??
to the future, MCC is investing heavily in the "Field of Dreams" –
its home – to ensure that the ground remains first-rate as well as maintaining
its already legendary status. For
example, the club has developed the facilities and ground, with the
introduction of portable nets, a new scoreboard, and are looking to introduce
coaching in the near future.
