Marchmont's last foray into the Scottish Cup was in 2017, when they beat Glasgow

    New MCC Website Launched
    The new Marchmont CC website was launched in anger last night (12th June) and can be seen at www.marchmontcc.com.  So what's changed?  We've essentially just given the site a new modern look and feel and updated some of the content.  We've made it more legible, particularly things like the club records and tidied up pages that tended to have text creep (overlapping of text on a page though it's not been designed in that way).  The site should also be a little more mobile user friendly, albeit

    MCC vs MDAFS: Parks Mini Preview
    A little stat attack before tonight's game.   MCC have a rich history in Scotland's oldest cricketing trophy, The Edinburgh Public Parks Association Trophy (http://www.eastleague.org.uk/cups/parkstrophy/), having lifted it on 4 occasions and having been finalists a further 6 times.  However it is a long time since the heady days of the 1990s, where MCC reached 8 finals in 10 years.  MCC's last foray to the final saw them come up short by 22 runs against Holy Cross, 11 years after their 1 run win
