MCC’s Community Cricket Heroes
MCC President Stephen Fry, officially launched a new campaign to celebrate grassroots cricket and find the country’s 11 greatest unsung cricketing heroes.
MCC’s Community Cricket Heroes campaign will invite the public and the cricket community from across the UK to put forward their nominations for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the grassroots game and their community.
A team of 11 MCC Community Cricket Heroes will be chosen from the nominations by a special panel including Fry and former England internationals and MCC Members, Mike Gatting and Claire Taylor. The winners will be invited to Lord’s as special guests of the MCC President to watch a day’s play of the England v Ireland Men’s Test match from the prestigious President’s Suite.
The panel will be looking for entrants who work hard to make a demonstrable positive difference to their community through grassroots cricket, from volunteers who go above and beyond for their cricket club and community, to coaches who are inspiring people on and off the pitch or players who have overcome adversity to play or help the game.
