Micklehurst Cricket Club (MCC)
was formed in 1890 and is based in the small mill town of Mossley in Lancashire
near the border of Yorkshire and Cheshire. Home is Richmond Hill, nestled at
the foot of the Pennines in the picturesque surroundings of Saddleworth to the
north east & Stalybridge to the south.
Whilst being able to boast the
services of many fine players during its history, most notable was Omar Henry,
who went on to become the first non-white player to represent South Africa at
international level and later became chairman of selectors for the South
African Cricket Board.
The club has a group of dedicated volunteer coaches who
are all ECB trained and through their efforts have recently developed players
for both Lancashire and England youth teams
