Welcome to Matching Green Cricket Club        

We are a friendly village cricket club playing in the very picturesque village of Matching Green in the rural north west of Essex near the Essex/Herts border. The cricket square is in the middle of the Green, the largest designated village green in Essex. Cricket has been
 played on the Green since the 1830s. The club attained Clubmark status in June 2015 confirming its commitment to Junior cricket development in the community having met the benchmarks for a safe, high quality community cricket club. We have two Saturday XIs playing in the Herts & Essex Cricket League and a Sunday XI playing friendlies. We also play midweek crick
et including the 20 over League Cup and Boardman's Davies Cup and enjoy an annual Cricket Week in July when we play all day matches.

On the field we have had recent success winning the Herts & Essex Cricket League in 2016, 2015 and 2013 and the HECL League Cup in 2012.
We have a successful Junior section and hold coaching sessions on Friday evenings for boys and girls from 6 years old. Our Under 9 and Under 11 teams play in the local district competitions and our U13 team play friendlies.

During the winter months we field two senior teams and Under 11 & Under 9 teams in the local indoor league. In 2011 our senior indoor team were overall runners-up in the Essex Indoor Competition.
Off the field we were delighted to finish a fantastic new pavilion in 2013 which really creates a focal point on the village green. Overlooked by the village pub this really is village cricket at its best!

The club are always looking for new members and volunteers.
If you are interested in joining please email the Secretary Martin Figg martin@matchinggreencc.com
