Streatham & Marlborough Posts

Welcome to SMCC

We are very pleased to welcome you to Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club.

To give you some history on the club, Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club was formed on the 1st February 2003 after the merger of two long established local clubs, Streatham CC (1805) and Marlborough (1870) CC. WG Grace played at Streatham in 1902 so you are in good company! More recent alumni includes the 4th most expensive cricketer in the 2009 IPL, South African international, Tyron Henderson.

Midweek SMS – 16.06.10

Dear all,

Unfortunately the senior sides lost their unbeaten run this weekend, only for the colts to take up the mantle and record 3 wins!

Last weekends results: Saturday

Having won the toss for a second consecutive week, Ilbers decided to have a bat first against Metropolitan Police. After losing Ellis early, Thomas and Stephens batted well to take the score up to 50 with MP still extracting movement out of the surface. SMCC lost Thomas for 24 before Stephens (33) fell LBW, leaving SMCC needing to rebuild at 90-3. Unfortunately a procession of wickets followed with no one able to support the in-form Fernando. MP bowled good areas and got a little assistance from the pitch, with 5 caught behinds in the innings. Fernando was the 9th man out for a fine 76. SMCC bowled out for 173 from 40 overs.

SMCC fall to Met. Police

SMCC travelled to Met Police for the second installment of declaration cricket. Having won the toss for a second consecutive week, Ilbers decided to have a bat first. Fretwell started off for the Police and struggled to control the swinging ball. He soon found his radar and swung one through Ellis’ defences. Thomas and Stephens batted well to take the score up to 50 with MP still extracting movement out of the surface. Thomas had made 24 before Fretwell managed to get one to jump and took the shoulder of the bat, looping up for a return catch. Stephens and Fernando eased in to a nice partnership before Stephens was LBW to Turner, leaving SMCC needing to rebuild at 90-3.
