Streatham & Marlborough Cricket team

The Streatham and Marlborough Cricket Club's 5th XI play in Mayow Park.
They are a club that actively seeks community involvement, new members and young people. They coach in local schools including Forest Hill and Sydenham Girls through the 'Chance to Shine 'Programme. Several of the team are current/ex Forest Hill boys including two lads playing in the park last Saturday 18th August 2012.
Streatham and Marlborough Cricket Club is based on Dulwich Common, SE21 7EX where they have their main ground (opposite the Grove Tavern). They run 6 Saturday sides, 2 Sunday sides, a woman's side and U12, U14 and U16 Colts sides. Adult net sessions are on Tuesdays from 6pm.

There is a membership fee with concessionary rates available but anyone looking to join a cricket club is welcome to come to nets on a Tuesday and make themselves known to the team. They are a very friendly club where people from all walks of life and all ages play cricket together. Their women's section is something they are very proud of and the fastest growing section of the club. They have had two members of the women's section turn out for the 5th XI in Mayow Park this year.

The remaining fixtures for this season in Mayow Park are:
Saturday 25th August against Mottingham CC
