Churcher’s College was honoured to host the legendary Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) for a very special cricket match as part of the school’s 300th anniversary celebrations.
“I wanted something amazing to add to our fixture list for the school’s 300th celebrations and the MCC delivered by kindly accepting our invitation to join us for a special ‘Tercentenary Cricket Tournament’,” explains Rob Maier, Head of Cricket at Churcher’s College.
“Our cricket ground looked beautiful and the Churcher’s team started well, putting the MCC in a spot of bother at 40/2. Unfortunately, it was at this point that the heavens opened and we were forced to abandon the match. However, it was an amazing experience, in particular for the Churcher’s first team players.
“The crowning glory came after a delicious lunch for all the players, when the MCC presented us with a commemorative plaque which will take pride of place in the cricket pavilion.
“We hope to meet the MCC again soon to finish what we started and continue this wonderful relationship. Many thanks to the MCC for visiting us and giving our players memories to cherish, despite the rain!”
