Welcome to The Melford Valley Twenty20 Cricket League.
The League was formed in 2017 to promote T20 cricket in the vicinity of Long Melford, recognising that the games will be played in the evening when light restrictions will apply and therefore needed to fit in with players’ work schedules.
T20 is an increasingly important and attractive form of the game. The intention of the League is to pick up on the professional razzmatazz and bring them to grass roots. Our League games therefore feature:
- Coloured (“pyjama”) kit
- Coloured pads
- White balls
- Black sight screens
- Power plays and other bowling restrictions
- Music and fun!
The League would not be possible without the excellent and generous support of our sponsors to whom we are extremely grateful – Robby Malique, owner of the Melford Valley Tandoori Restaurant in Long Melford, and shirt sponsor Nicholas King Homes plc, developer of the Orchard Brook development in the village.
For 2017, with one exception (19th July at Cavendish) all matches are played at Long Melford’s ground at Meetingfield (adjacent to the football club). All are welcome. Please come along and enjoy!
