MCC win narrowly

The pavillion forms the backdrop to the MCC's challenge

An excellent day was enjoyed on Tuesday August 6, as Rye hosted Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC).  Thanks to everyone who made a contribution to ensure Rye provided good food, drink, hospitality and a good game of cricket.

Play begins

MCC scored 248-3 declared. Rye in reply fell 20 runs short. 16 year old Luke Payton struck a wonderful 92 and posted a partnership with George Wathen (41) that took Rye into a strong position. The MCC were forced into ringing the boundary to halt the progress of Payton.

A late blitz of huge sixes by Altaf Ahmad (31) was not enough. A great day and looking forward to 2021 already.
