MITCHELL Johnson may be the most Herculean fast bowler that’s ever been, but England are still looking to roll out the green carpet for him at Edgbaston.

MITCHELL “MJ” Johnson, Mitchell “The Star” Starc, Josh “Hoff” Hazlewood, Peter “P Siddy” Siddle and young sensation Patty Cummins are Australia’s No.1 boy band.

WHILE the lion’s share of attention is on the return of South Melbourne to the national stage in the FFA Cup, Heidelberg United coach George Katsakis has a simple message — don’t forget about us.

GRAEME Swann phoned into an Australian radio station pretending to be his former England teammate Kevin Pietersen — and completely destroyed him.

SHE’S the baddest woman on the planet but Australia’s never had a glimpse of her in the flesh. That might be about to change.

Club Structure

The business and affairs of the MCC are overseen and controlled by a Committee. The Committee comprises members of the club elected to honorary office bearer positions, namely, a president, three vice-presidents and a treasurer, and nine other club members elected to the Committee.

To assist in the execution of its responsibilities, the Committee has established a number of sub-committees to which the president appoints committee members.  Committee members are also involved in the following additional sub-committees and related funds or corporate bodies: MCC Sporting Sections, Cricket, Legal, AFL, MCC Foundation and MCC Nominees.

Additionally, the Committee reviews the performance of the club’s management team in consultation with the chief executive officer, Stephen Gough, measuring results against the business plan objectives, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and monitoring the strategic and operational risk management plan.

There are about 140 permanent club employees and event staff are drawn from a pool of 900-plus for match-day duties at the ground.
