Welcome to the all new-look (new logo!) fun packed website where you will find all sorts of goodies relating to LMCC - we celebrated our Centenary in 2022!
Overall the club played 20 match, winning 9, drawing 1 and losing 10.We finished a credible 4th in Div 11 West of the Sussex League after 14 matches. Two further games were cancelled due to the inclement weather. Season was book-ended by 4 friendlies.
Ash Hilton retained his Batting Cup with Darren Radford regaining the Bowling Cup he won some years before. Full season averages can be found in the Handbook.pdf on home page.
Other seasonal highlights were the 1st league ton by Fin Cheal, a record breaking ton by Rick Kelly (in record time with record number of 6's) and the wicket taking record broken by Steve Luckhurst.
The Club Centenary celebration was held Saturday 9th July 2022 at Sussex County FA headquartes in Lancing, over 70 attended. Some greats of the past and present rubbed shoulders and shared tales of the good and the not so good. A fantastic evening was had. With guest speakers, raffle/auction and food/drink and everyone leaving with a copy of the Centenry Book. An updated version (including a review of the 2022 season) of that book (sans stats section) is available now to download on the front page.
Again to be held at Angmering School - check twitter/instagram/facebook etc for news.
