Marylebone Cricket hub

Established over 6 years ago with the support of Comberton Village College, the Cambridge MCC Foundation Hub is considered one of the most proactive of all the 54 Hubs in the UK.

This year we are delighted to be able to continue with squads at U13 & U15 for boys and U13 for girls.

The Hub is responsible for finding young cricketers in state school education who show good levels of aptitude and skill and providing them with high quality coaching and facilities with the aim of helping them reach their potential.

Please note that a cricketer will not qualify if he/she is already involved in the full County set up for the forthcoming season and the MCC Foundation has determined that all candidates must be attending a state school.

Although we have a small supply of kit, if candidates have their own kit/equipment it would be more beneficial to bring their own to the trial. Boys must have box or they will not be allowed to bat.

The dates of the trials at Hills Road Sports Centre are:
