About Mayfield Cricket

Mayfield Cricket Club has a proud history dating from the first season in 1925. We play friendly cricket on Saturdays and are founder members of the Middlesex and Essex Sunday league and are based in Palmers Green N13.

Home games are played at Hazelwood Sports Ground, and the majority of away games are in the local area. Changing and showering facilities are available on the ground. We welcome players of all ages and ability, but do not have a junior or colts section.

For further information, please visit our Mayfield Criket Club website

Subscriptions and Match Fees

Our annual subscription is £65, but this is reduced to £60 if paid before the 1st June.
Match fees are £8 per game for members (non-members pay £10). This includes teas.
Other benefits of membership include:
• Reduced ticket prices for all Mayfield CC events
• Regular club magazine, Mayfield Matters
• Use of the clubhouse facilities all year round

Selection and Match Day

Members are given priority for selection for games and will be contacted by the Team Secretary Richard Granger early in the week preceding the game. The Saturday and Sunday teams are then picked and players notified. In the event of bad weather players will be contacted if the game has to be called off – DO NOT assume a game is cancelled unless you hear from the club officials. 

Home matches start at 2pm (league games at 1.30pm) and all players are expected to be at the ground to help set up the equipment by at least 1.30pm. 

For away games the players will be informed of the time to meet to travel to the game. After the game all players are expected to return to the clubhouse where the Captain will award the Man of the Match and the award for the most impressive (or funniest) moment of the game. This also gives players the opportunity to socialise and build team spirit. 

All members will be asked to do teas once per season and will be reimbursed a maximum of £25 towards this. The captain will inform you when it is your turn on the tea rota.

Other matters 

We have an Annual Club Game and Barbecue, normally on a Saturday. This will be a full game of cricket; Saturday vs. Sunday XI’s followed by a barbeque back at the club. 

The Annual General Meeting is held each November and is the opportunity to influence the running of the club and elect the officials for the next year. Also at the AGM awards are made to the Best Batsman and Bowler plus the Most Improved Player and a special Presidents Cup to the member who has done most for the club on and off the field. Members also vote for an award for their Player of the Year. 

Our statistician will also be able to give you your personal season and career stats and averages. We hold records going back to our first game in 1925. 

We also run a friendly Fantasy League based on the performance of each player during the course of the season with cash prizes for the successful manager. These statistics and details of the Fantasy League are also published on the Mayfield Cricket Club

Tour 

In the last week of June we go on our Annual Cricket Tour. Tour has been a Mayfield tradition for over 50 years and is considered to be the highlight of the season. In the past 3 seasons we have toured Sussex, Galway and Worcestershire. It is the ideal opportunity to get to know the other club members and play cricket in surroundings that vary from county standard pitches to village greens.

Pre-season Nets 

Pre-season nets start early January and run through to the start of the season in April. Nets are held at Highlands School World’s End Lane, N21 1QQ and start at 8pm. A great way to get to know the captains and other players and burn off the Winter pounds!
