MSCC pre-season dinner

MSCC Thank You Tea 2017

Yesterday afternoon (Saturday) in a wonderful little venue tucked away in deepest Bletchingdon, a Tabernacle gathered for the annual MSCC Thank You Tea. 

Our hosts were Lucy & Carl of The Batch Cafe, Green Farm. Who  produced a superb cream tea and the odd slice of “sublime cake”, concurring  with the Social Sec & Simon Pettit’s reconnaissance report. More importantly, Yorkshire Tea was on tap –  which we all know is the only beverage one serves when the talk is cricket and there was plenty in the tank! 

It was great so many Tea Makers were able to attend our annual jolly, including: 3 generations of the Cranston family, Catie Williams jetting in from Oz and Jeannie Martin. Thanks to our Captain Jeannie had a preview of the prestigious Michael Martin Trophy and our Chairman provided a batch of photos from this and previous seasons for all to look over. 

One final mention must go to Julia Davenport, who not only attended the tea but very kindly made the bill vanish in a puff of warm scone crumbs…

Once again on behalf of the MSCC Committee, Playing Members and our always contented opposition, THANK YOU, Tea Makers, for the outstanding teas we have enjoyed this season which have been simply, simply lovely!
