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. Although Clubmark status has now lapsed, we retain our commitment to Junior cricket development in the community. We have one Saturday XI playing in the Herts & Essex Border League and a Sunday XI playing friendlies. We also play midweek cricket including the 20 over League Cup, Boardman's Davies Cup and the successful Villager's Cup 6 a side competition.

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 5 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 Junior 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.
