2021 Registrations Open

The plan released from Cricket Ireland indicates that under-18s can start training in pods of up to 15 people from 26 April 2021. While it is hoped that adults can return to training in May, we are still awaiting the exact timing of this, which is subject to further Government guidance.

However, the MCU expects to be able to operate a full league season, starting in June or July, following similar covid measures as set out last year.

While we await government and MCU guidance on exactly when we can return to train and play, we are opening the membership applications up. This is vital for the club, as with COVID restrictions activity & maintenance around the club has been non existent. However costs of running the club still remain, with spending on insurance, grounds maintenance and upgrading the club house a priority. We expect to be able to return to get the pitch & cubhouse in order in the coming weeks, so we thank all members who have paid memberships already, and encourage all other members to support the club in the lead up to the coming season.

The club fees for 2021 and bank details are on our membership page and as of this year you are now able to pay online here

To complete your membership you’ll have to do three things.

  1. Complete the online registration form –or– download and fill in the form from here and submit to the secretary
  2. Submit your fee via bank transfer (see account details) –or– pay online here
  3. Complete the MCU registrations here

Membership for 2020 Season

With COVID restrictions, we are are only going to get a limited amount of Cricket in this year, if any at all. This means that activity and participate around the club has been non existent up until the end of may and will be reduced for the remainder of the summer months. As a result, we have not had the opportunity to collect membership and match fees from everyone.

With a lot of people on a reduced working schedule, we recognise those additional financial difficulties. However costs of running the club still remain, with spending on insurance, grounds maintenance and upgrading the club house to make it suitable for COVID guidelines that may be put in place. We thank all members who have paid memberships already and encourage all other members to support the club over the coming season.
