Robert Halfon MP said "I was delighted to hear that Matching have finally secured this Olympic investment, for their cricket club. It is a tribute to the work the local community has put in over the years. Hopefully many young people from Harlow and the nearby villages will be inspired by this to take up the sport." Sir Alan Haslehurst MP is also thrilled at our news saying "It is good news for Matching Green Cricket Club and a real boost to cricket in the area"

Club Chairman, David Brown, said: “This award will enable Matching Green Cricket Club to realise our ambition of rebuilding our pavilion. The club has already raised significant funds and the £50,000 from the Places People Play fund leaves us just £15,000 short. With one last push for donations and on our fundraising we will have the funds required to complete the build before the start of next season.”
