    Two MCCs take battle to golf course

    Dec 24, 2013

    Two of the world's oldest sporting clubs - Marylebone Cricket Club and Melbourne Cricket Club - competed in a golf match played over two days (December 22 and 23) at Royal Melbourne on the west and east courses. 

    Melbourne held a strong lead in the four-ball, best-ball matchplay competition after day one. Marylebone turned the tables on day two, but not enough to snatch victory as Melbourne emerged victorious, three up. 

    Players from both teams enjoyed a post-match dinner in the Committee Room at the MCG, where Marylebone captain Simon Dyson presented Melbourne captain and CEO Stephen Gough with the perpetual trophy, which was retained by Melbourne after their victory in the UK earlier in the year. 

    Presidents Paul Sheahan and Mike Gatting closed the evening by enlightening guests with their thoughts on the current Ashes series, along with a few anecdotes from their playing days past.

    The sporting battle between the two clubs continues with a cricket match to be played at the MCG following the Test match on New Year’s Eve, where Melbourne will be looking for redemption after narrowly going down at Lord’s earlier in the year.
