Typing in a nice long message to see what happens when you start using all the words up and how massive the post will go and if it will mess up the actual site I wonder … hmm yes keep typing
I am, the second person to write a new shout on the box of shouts
I appear to be a small green creature..
Hello new web site!!
Great new website Chefy.
Thank you, Thank you !
Well done Chefy. I’d better get updating those profiles and sending you some photo’s of the dinner!
Why am I a triangular monster! No, don’t respond to that anyone!
You can change your picture when you are logged in by visiting the “your profile” link – avatar is near the bottom
Good work Chefy. Not sure I understand all of the features but that says more about me than you!
Top stuff chefy! It all looks great
This is all disturblingly modern to my eyes, and consequently must be of great worth – well done Chefmeister
Even disturbingly – - –
Congratulations on 2010 success .and Yes we were flogged in the ashes series the stongest English side for years? probably the weakest Ausssie side for a long time
Well done Chefy, great work on the new website.
Chefy – is it me or are only a few of the player profiles visable?
Is there going to be a meeting this week ref UEA?
Hi all, excellent new site Chefy. Do we have nets booked for pre-season?
JB waiting to hear back from UEA Chris but I believe they start at the end of Feb.
Thanks Hubert, I need to get some rust out of the old bones!
Thanks guys, Hubert theres and older news option at the bottom of most pages, clicking that shows the older news :)
Hi All. In light of Keith Nicholl’s not providing Saturday pitches, should we look elsewhere for Nets?
Cheers Chef. Is there a way of getting a player profile by going to an alphabetical list like on the last version?
In fact Chef the player profiles are not in alphabetical order and not to easy to navigate. Can u tweak so that any changes I make can be seen?
Yea it’s in the pipeline – it involves linking to every player profile separately … You make the changes and I’ll sort it
OK. I’ll start trawling through them.
Cheffy. On the download page how about a membership app form, ecb sheet team list and the form Steve will use each season for contact details?
I know its early but was wondering about nets. I do rather feel we should boycott the UEA if they don’t do the right thing and allow us to play there this season.
Also Chefy, I seem to just get a big grey box at the top of the homepage?
It’s because your web browser doesn’t have the plug-in to support the video feature Woody! Don’t we have a deposit to pay to the UEA though which we would lose?
Nice work Shefki. Hope your efforts are duly recognised…
OK MiniShed smart ar*e. How does one get the plug in (whatever they are)?
Defo agree with the download things Hubert – Could osmeone oblige and send me said forms?
Woody – Yes that should be a video, are there any messages on the screen hinting why you’ve just got a box? What browser you using?
Chaps, I have seen hundreds of emails regarding the pitch and everyone seems to have glazed over Wymondham High. Seeing as they dont play any cricket there on a Saturday is it not worth looking at that?
Chef, just so you know there are issues browsing the website in Safari……
What issues mate? I’m browsing in safari right now on my iPhone…
Hmmm just when the Mrs looked at the profiles on Safari they did not appear with the white background they had the grass making them very difficult to read! x
I’ll look into it… Does it happen everytime?
Yep it seems so mate, just thought I would let you know!
I’ve put in a safari specific code to enable white bgs – not perfect, but better!
Matt, I suggested Wymondham High. The Chairman said the facilities are nowhere near up to standard
Chef/Steve P, I will update the First X1 profiles but I don’t know enough about all of the players to do them all. Chef I have done a few already so if you wanted to sort them alphabetically now then you can.
Hi Chefy, the video works now, upgraded from IE7 to IE8 and that seemed to sort the problem.
Glad to hear it mate!
Chef – I would like to post an update on the Tour as a news item rather than here on the Shout Box. Shall I email you?
Hey mate, I have upgraded your access – login to dashboard and make a new post
Thanks Chef – first news item posted with back up from Minished too !
Any nets happening anytime soon ?
End of Feb apparently George. But I don’t think we have an exact date yet
Cowboy walks into a German car showroom…….. Audi….
Good news on the tour boys!!! will get my cheque in the post very soon :D
Anyone fancy a game of footy? 6-a-side @ UEA, 9-10pm Monday nights. Places available tonight…
Pretty sure I have sorted out the viewing/missing background colour issues now… let me know.
Definitely up for the tour this year! :)
I have you on my list Dell, need to have deposits now to make bookings – see my news item, cheers.
TOUR – please can those who have expressed interest email me on email@example.com – I haven’t got email addresses for a lot of you and it would be helpful. Cheers.
Any update on the UEA pitches?
No firm news on UEA pitches – every reason to be optimistic I suggest. Background noise gently favourable??
Thanks JB, hope the UEA option works out for us
Congratulations to Martin and Louise who are now proud parents of Elizabeth, born 8th Feb weight 8lbs.
Congratulations Martin & Louise from all of us at the Cricket Club. Good job we’ve started a girls’ section!
Hi Cheffy,Is the any plans for a mobile version of at least the shoutbox? During the season I regually check this from my mobile and am currently getting no response.
Hi, my fault, it does work on smartphone. Could do with mobile if possible though as quite slow.
Keep up the good work Cheffy.
What’ the story on B and C team pitches then. Same ground for both? Alternate weeks at home?
It’s available should we decide it is suitable. Nothing set in stone yet.
Is my profile being updated? As much as I like being 23 still I feel it needs a refresh!!
It has been done, Matt. The Chair is doing a great job with them all.
Reading into Olly’s player profile… The chairman thinks O.H.O.B is DAFT! .. Pah! :)
I think it’s the Chairman’s birthday (Tues) .. happy Birthday Bungers!
I Too have heard that rumour. Happy XXXth Birthday Steve! z
Happy Birthday Steve…keep it rocking Chair!
Chef are the 2011 fixtures on the site somewhere?
If someone can supply them to me I will them up…
I see we have a coaching section ready for the season. All we need now is a captains section. Keep up the good work :-)
I can of course create a captains sectionâ€¦. But do you in fact need it?
LOADS has been done to the site tonight – Check out the new drop down menu, the easy-access player profile, the quick-load gallery and much more! Enjoy
Chefy, would it be better if, on the profiles, I put surname followed by Christian name? They would presumably, then be in alphabetical order and would be easier to find – more organised.
If you feel that would be better… But I don’t envy you – It may take a while? Fixture calendar is ready to rock and roll – complete with google maps to help find the grounds :)
Oh! What you put was ambiguous .. I’ve put them in alphabetical order by first name – Go to About -> Player Profiles .. Is that good enough?
Excellent work Chefy and Steve. Chefy for some reason clicking on the fixtures tab brings up Ryan Hayward, which is a real worry on many levels!
The site is looking top drawer!!
Chefy- don’t worry hubert – that link isn’t active yet, cheers mini shed
In fact hubert.. login and have a look at “myCalendar” – pretty powerful – thats where the fixtures will be..
excellent work on the profiles from Steve. Fantastic stuff from Chefy. Are there plans for an honours board?
Chef it’s all looking good! Why is the News page the player profiles though?
It looks powerful but complicated Chef. Does it come with instructions?!
The new site is looking great! Top stuff with the profiles chairman.
Don’t worry Chris it’s because the profiles are posted as ‘news’ …they will only b posted once so all newer news will overwrite them.
Hubert – there’s help files and a whole help website – I will start posting fixtures this week
Scratch that – I have changed the coding so news with the category of “player profile” isn’t included in the main feed – Look in the about menu
Yes Salad, If someone supplies me the list of honours I will create it under the “statistics” menu most likely.
The promo video addition is brilliant; Well done Cheffy. Do you have a copy of Vince’s club stats from last season for honours board?
Hope to see a good number at the first nets session in a weeks time. See you there :D
Chefy / Salad -the document produced by Vince has most of the key achievements in it. Maybe that could be put here as a pdf?
No i don’t have that document… anyone got vince’s email?
Bubbs is taking over as Mr Stats so might be able to oblige
yes, already communicating with him about stats..
Anthing you need to know about the stats give me a shout cheers :D
Congratulations to the Football League for bringing the final games of the Championship season forward to Sat 7th from Sunday 8th May. Let’s hope NCFC have promotion well & truly wrapped up before then…
Shafty’s latest post is of real concern to me! Naturally I hope NCFC go up but if members want a very grumpy (more grumpy than usual) first team skipper then going to Carrow Rd on 7/5 will do it.
I suppose people will have to make there decisions and if they are left out the next week then they will have to work to get there place back?? Thats just the way i see it :D
Jetro i shall pay you my Tour deposit at the nets on Monday, is cash ok?
Yes Bubbs cash is fine
Well Done to the U12′s at the Lords Tav Indoor tournament on Sat, reached Semi’s before losing to eventual winners. The boys played very well beating Swardeston in the group stages.
I add my congratulations to u12′s.
At least it’s a 12.45 kickoff. Depending on the importance of the game I can see some negotions with regard to cricket start time. I can see a 3 o’clock start time on the cards!
For an added bonus, the A team do not have a game on May 7th as they are starting a week earlier instead so Ok for Leeroy and co :-)
With the sun setting c9pm, there would not be enough time to finish if games started at 3! Let’s hope City are secure in the play offs and players make themselves available. All clubs face the same challenge.
Just like to make it clear that I haven’t left the club. I have a stress fracture in my back so won’t be coming to nets for a while
Now up to 13 players who have paid for the Tour! One more and I will book up the hotel and Shire Sports will start to book fixtures!
Salad, you mean top 2 not playoffs! Games can be shortend and B’s have Eaton(H) so not to bad.
Good turn out at the first net session last night hope to see more of yo next week!! Also good job Jethro on the tour so far, get your deposits paid to guarantee your place!!!
And I hope they share my view that games are 45 overs for a good reason.
A TRUE conversation stopper there! … Right guys, new topic – The TOUR THEME – What fancy dress shall we do? Get involved!
Tour theme – something nautical maybe given it’s Southampton … Nelson uniforms?
I can lend out my hat if anyone is stuggling to find suitable headgear!!
The idea of sailors & captains sounds funny….
Any idea of when the Saturday fixtures are out?
A religous theme .. nuns; monks; vicars; priests; popes; buddhas; bishops; choirboys… lots of fine’s possibilities there, and partaking of holy water …
religious theme sounds quite good as salad suggests also i think the nautical theme sounds quite apt due to location!! Matt your an idiot!! sesame street?? really?? you are definatly adopted LOL!!
To get some really good ideas, check out wellington rugby 7s / galleries / 2010
Chef – can you add in the Hampshire Tour fixtures to the “OtherFixtures” please – oppo tbc for Sun 7 and Mon 8 Aug. Ta
What about cavemen/the Flintstones? I do like nautical., however.
Hi Chefy, Please can you add a News item to confirm that Junior Coaching starts on Fri 22nd April. Cheers :-)
Are there any Alliance forms attached to the website which I can print off and fill in ?
GK – You’re already registered for the Alliance
Apologies but I can’t be at Melton tomorrow morning. I have a golf competition that has been in the diary for weeks and tee off is 9am.
Beware the Windmill on the 5th.
Great little Work Force Video, Subbo; perhaps makes up for asking ‘when will this year’s shirts turn up?’
Many thanks to the 60 people who turned up to help at our Cricketforce Day yesterday. It was a great day and we achieved far more than expected. Thanks for the video, Michael. Steve
Great to see so many at the ground for Cricket Force weekend. Tommy told me on the way home he loves the cricket ground!
Finally got round to logging in, quality site Cheffy!!
Steve, have I been deemed worthy enough for a profile yet??
Help, Chefy! I intended the Cricketforce pics to be in the gallery rather than the news page! What have I done wrong?
They are in both Steve – As they have just been posted they are deemed “news” to alert everyone .. however are also stored in the gallery. Thanks Pies. :)
Whatâ€™s happened to the video? It seems to have disappeared. You can certainly have a profile Rob. I just need a bit of info. Previous clubs, outstanding achievements, nasty habits - that sort of thing. Perhaps you'd email me a few details.
Video is back up..but since a wordpress update we are experiencing some issues with the links not working… im sorting it…hopefully.
Anyone who is struggling to see the video here can see it one the Melton facebook page…
apg for not showing a club last weekend, had a prior family commitment.
Little Joe available next weekend for fixtures
Not available for any fixtures up until the 30th.
Hi Guys – Here’s to a successful 2011 Season and more promotion and league winners.
Ok I think I am destined not to see this video because wherever I go to watch it, it doesn’t work!!! Could someone send me it via email or tell me where it works so I could actually watch it Thanks
Hi Chef, Have we got a category for Team announcments rather than the shout box. Cheers.
Great too see the youngsters training last night. Great job ladies and gents
Anyone know the scores at Eaton yesterday? A team won by 8 wickets

U15 Team for home match against Thetford Sun meet 9.30 sharp Annegrarn Frazer Green Wilson Bickel Osborne Farmer Woolrich Hunter Peck Hazel
Sorry but I won’t be able to attend training tonight. What with work and the city centre effectively being shut down because of the parade getting away is difficult.
You see Hubert, in spite of your cynicism I knew you were secretly desperate to attend the parade…
Nothing to do with the “Fitness” and “exercise” nature of tonights session then…
If it keeps my cynical friends happy, I will flog myself on a 12 mile sprint on the bike when I get home.
Dave, the SNCL is 8-a-side. You’ve named 11 in your team against Thetford.
Realise that, revised team to follow. Too many lists! slow down Mr B

B team lost by 62 runs. Martham 282-9 Melton 220-9. Good effort against a strong Martham side.
Congratulations Jace, Dave and Rob on impressive performances.
Well done gentlemen, young and old, who have achieved outstanding personal performances. Enjoy your successes.
U11s & U15s both won this morning so well done on another good set of results this week.
Thanks to all who contributed to the ‘Sunday Selection’ debate. I think it’s been fully aired and have now removed it from the public domain. Thanks Marcus & those who played on Sunday.
I thought that it was time to join the 21st Century. V.Scary. Just a word to say that on the evening May 28th I will be strumming in the clubhouse (as opposed to slumming). I shall murder a few old classics in my usual style.
I can’t wait to hear you strumming your banjo Mally….. Sunday side lost by 2 runs today to a strong Swardeston team. Well played. Stow away next week. Clarke, Clarke, Chef, A Coops already confirmed.
minished joe here i can play
Great effort by the Sunday boys. Can I request some Quo Mally?
A very respectable Swardeston result Mini – well done, and thank you
Sadly… We should have won.. a true tale of the underdogs winning!
Not available for next week due to exams, realised after todays exam that not enough revision was done for my liking.
Cheers GK, good luck with the revising!
team for old buck this thersday
team for old buck this thersday
meet at melton at 5:30
ps its joe taking all the sout box up
We can tell by your spelling of ‘thersday’ and serious lack of capitals..
Never mind ‘Thersday’. I so far have 5 for Sunday, and after even more texts, and the fuss kicked up during the week, nothing has changed.
Have you got Doc as he is not available Sat and said he might ask to play Sunday instead?
I don’t have his number. Is there any chance someone can send me a full contacts list, as I don’t seem to have received one. Or more than likely, I have misplaced it
Will do in the next hour.
Contact list emailed and Docs details are correct. Good luck for Sunday.
I’ve emailed an updated contact list containg the missing U16s-U18s to all the skippers.

Marcus, George B is available on Sunday if required? David.
\\Ok good, he text me on Monday saying he can’t, but I’m glad he has changed his mind. Thanks Dave, at least we are over half way there!
As a club can we come up with a practical selection solution to help Marcus out?
good luck to the u 15s tonight i am sorry can not be there Family business but good luck
Room for one more if anyone needs a lift to Dersingham from The Showground on Saturday?
C team away to Felthorpe on Saturday:-
M Howard, J Bickel, G Button, S Clarke+, L DeSalis, M Farmer, K Frazer, D Hayward, S Phoenix, S Wilson, C Woolrich. Meet at Watling Park, Hall Lane at 1 for 1:30 start.
Two good wins again tonight. The U13s beat Norwich by 80 runs and the U15s beat Old Bucks (see report)
Well done U15′s for beating Old bucks. Good lads.
Olly I am keen for a lift but I suggest we see how many cars we have and what space there is in each on arrival at the showground but if there is room and others can get there, a lift would be great.
OK, lets play it by ear. BTW, I know my bambi-on-ice impression wan’t very effective but I didn’t go for 28!
Apologies. A typo and duly amended!
There’s a strong chance that I’ll need a lift from the showground also as I probably won’t have the car tomorrow.
I can probably take 3 (e.g. Jim, Mark, Shafty) if someone else can help out with kit [don't think 4 lots will go in the boot]
1st team won by 7 wickets chasing 215. Woody 80 odd not out, Coops & Chef 50s. Subo 4 fer.
Good wins lads!
A Team Beat Halvergate by 4 wickets. Halv 208-5, GMCC A 210-6. Matt Clarke 106, Leeroy 3-29

The thought of Minished baring anything is more than I can bear.

Stupid bloody idea. I’ll be putting little or no effort into that.
Sorry, in a rather curmudgeonly mood today. Will go as far as wearing pants over trousers, but that’s nothing new…
Wear a mask too! It will do us all a favour….
Just trying to improve your mood!
Reckon my mood will improve by about 5 o’clock…
How ’bout ‘Painter-man’, Shafty?
Was thinking more Brown Bottle from Viz
I have the most amazing thunderbird outfit! surely one of the Tracey brothers count as a ‘Superhero’

One consequence of the present playing strength of GMCC is that an entire team of players have not been offered cricket this Saturday. Usually, as members take their summer holidays, this situation improves in late July.

Chicken, re U11s semi -”Games are due to be played w/c 24th July…”.
JM, thats what i meant but i obviously wasn’t to clear. Thanks anyway.
Was it worth it Leeroy?
A 7-0 win and watching Jethro schmoozing on first name terms with half the team, yeah, it was worth it!

I have been doing my sums – 1s and Cs have clinched promotion. As need only 1 point to be mathematically certain. All three can win their leagues. Unfortunately Bs can no longer finish higher than 3rd
What date is the dinner this year?
Good to see Winterton only got thirteen points last weekend.We are 22 points clear but really need maximum points next week.
Dinner is 8th October – can I have the last dance Shafty?
Message to Kevin Fraser – Can you play in the 6-a-side on Monday? Cheers Daryl Godbold
If any more people have any raffle prizes they would like to donate, then if you would leave them behind the bar over the weekend. I will be at Melton park on Sat and Sun so just notify me then.
‘Course you can JB, just keep your hands to yourself this time.
Micky Piggott was at Melton last night for a session on wickekeeping & a â€˜coaches updateâ€™ but only 3 coaches and no players turned up! A bit embarrassing!!! It also costs the club quite a lot for these sessions. Perhaps timing not good. We'll learn!
If anyone would like ot bake any cakes to sell at the 6aside festival on Monday that would be great. They are a good money spinner to sell with teas and coffees so your support would be much appreciated once again :)
Shed Sorry cant play on Monday wife has arranged a birthday treat for me!!!

@widge .. Lol “Jayboy” .. poor Jason :)
Good luck everyone. Let’s keep the score updates and results coming on here today (and weather too if it spoils the fun).
A Team game at Brooke is OFF. Waterlogged square at Brooke, I have been over and verified it!
B Team game at Saham is OFF. Waterlogged says Saham skipper at 1103 today Saturday.
I need a mature gentleman to play for the old gits team on Monday at the 6 a side any takers? Some legends are playing in the side
Congrats to Mark and the firsts for taking the title and the club to a new level.
From what I can see, looking at the Alliance site, Halvergate made 144 for 9 and then the match was abandoned, Winterton are down as getting 9 points, is this correct? So they only need 19 points from the last game?
That’s how it looks to me too. Any news from the Cs?
Congrats to 1sts for promotion and winning their league. Congrats to As – promotion confirmed – fingers crossed for next week.
C’s abandoned as well. Congratulations 1sts sterling performance, here’s hoping for the A’s
Shame Cs didn’t get the chance to beat Garboldisham and win the league but congrats for promotion
Best season I can remember. Seniors AND Juniors. Congratulations all round to players and officials alike. Bring on 2012.
Added Congratulations to Mark and the 1st team representatives. Well done too to Leeroy, and Clive / Mally.
6 a side tomorrrooowwww!!!!
Well done to Mini-Shed & Chefy for organising an excellent day yesterday and a big thank-you to all who helped or played.
Yes, a big thank you to everyone that turned-out and pitched-in .. It was a great day, and the weather avoiding us was a stroke of luck!
Calling Dave Bickel!!!!! Any chance I could get the U15′s scorebook from you I have tried texting you without success
yes sorry bubbs vtry 07813056745 will bring to ground tomorrow
Well done the U15′s great season guys, we trained hard and we played hard, a couple of hic ups along the way but it was a pleasure to work with you all see you sat
It would be great for the youngsters to see some Senior players at the Junior Festival on Friday/Saturday if anyone can spare a few minutes.
Junior Cup final confirmed as 2.30pm at Sprowston cc 11th Sept oppo either Happisburgh or Swaffham
So, at the same time as a Sunday Premier League match vs Downham, and NCFC’s home game vs West Brom …
The game against Downham will take place on Saturday 10th
Thanks to all who helped at the very successful Junior Festival and well done to the As who, despite being pipped for the championship, had a great season.
I hear the presidents game isn’t on this year? Is this a case of nobody organising it? Is there a day free for it if I can organise it?
No i think it was decided that would do one at he beginning of the season instead as with people going off to Uni and other commitments it was done this way I :D
Bubbs/Chef I had a go yesterday at posting the first team averages to the site but made a right dog’s breakfast of it so will leave that to either of you!
I think its a big shame that that was decided – We have 4 Saturday teams and junior teams.. finding 22, 20 or even 18 players for two teams would be easy.
We could then do another game at the beginning of next season.
ok Mark no probs, chef i’m afaid thats the decision thats been made so i think we’ll go with it for this season and disciss what we do next year :D
Junior Cup Final @ Sprowston CC 2.30pm Gt Melton v Swaffham follows Bernard Matthews Cup Final Swardeston v Downham at 11am
Team for the below meet 1.30pm @ Sprowston. D Godbold, R Wood, A Cooper, T Wilson, M Godbold, G Bunn, S Brett, L Whiddett, O Harris N Gristwood, D Bunn
It is never easy getting 22 players out at this time of year, even in a club our size. I think another factor was the wicket; there have been quite a few MNSCL fixtures to play in Sep and there is also end of season work too.
Great Melton chased 125 to win the Norfolk Junior Cup Final today against Swaffham at Sprowston CC. Won with 3 balls to spare, Bunnhead hit two fours in the final over :-)
Well done ‘Chelsea’; great to finish the season on a trophy winning high.
HELP US PLEASE – to put the pitch to bed 24.09.11 from 1000 till lunch. Or even just part of that morning – PLEASE
Sunday side won final game of the season, Melton 215-7 M Bunn 88, M Clarke 34* North Runcton 173-8 L. Whiddett 10-1-30-2 N. Clarke 10-1-41-3 Thanks to Marucs for a difficult job well done :D

All the best with that guys. I didn’t bother shaving mine off after last year, as it kept me warm! Are you staying ‘tache, or full face?
tache only no beards and goatee’s are allowed!! Seriously though if people want to donate just go to the links below, it’s a really good cause :D
Congratulations to Emma Bunn who has been selected for Norfolk U17′s girls team for 2012 season.
Well done Emma, hope you’ll still be involved with the junior girls group next season as an example to the younger ones of what they can achieve.
Hopefully see as many of you as possible at the Xmas drink in the Ribs of Beef Friday night, be there or be square….

Well done Aimee Palmer, selected for Norfolk Girls U13s squad.
Have a great Christmas and all the very best for 2012. Keep the ‘shouts’ coming – the website’s gone rather dead over the winter!
Merry Christmas everybody from the Shed family
7 weeks to indoor nets……
Skipper sounds keen . . perhaps he had a hectic Xmas? Happy New Year everyone.
Interesting JB that you should assume my “shout” was an indication of being keen….
Waiting for confirmation but due to Shipdam withdrawing from div 1 the B team should be promoted to Div 2
Now confirmed, Melton B will be in div 2 of the Norfolk League this year!
Congratulations to B team players from last year. Pity it is under these circumsatnces. Always a shame when a club folds. Good challenge for Bunny.
“keen” Hubert? Probably the benefit of wearing rose-tinted specs with a glass half-full.
wk 2o fantasy league update: Nick top with 1137, Sid 2nd with 1086. Your truely bottom with 954, behind Dell boy on 989.
Wellington Rugby 7s party this weekend. Check out the Dominion Post web site for dressing up ideas for tour …
Liking the new kit…however, having looked at the order form seems that the prices placed on the Details/Pictures document relate to junior prices?…thought the deals looked tempting…
Hope to see as many of you as possible at Nets on Monday night (UEA 6-8), also it may be a first chance to get a look at the new kit :D
Thanks for the birthday wishes Hubert. As you will see I haven’t made any posts recently! Thanks for pointing out the anomoly in kit prices, Olly. Now rectified!
A decent turnout – 28 – for the first net. Not too many aches and pains I hope!
Well done to the U13s on winning the SNCL Indoor Zip League by the narrowest of margins – over 5 games winning by a single wicket’s bowling points in the last over of the last game!!!
Apologies for not being able to make nets on Monday. My right arm, slow medium hostile stuff will make its 2012 appearance this coming Monday, all being well.
Hope you enjoy v3.2 .. Suggestions welcome!
Thanks for the updating Chefy – but before you abuse this 65 yr old, please remember we don’t all have 3G coverage!!
Chef the fixtures link is broken
Hubert is going to fix it for us… Thanks Skip.
Can who ever had the fixtures pdf sent it to me please? It needs uploading again and I didn’t have the original.
Can someone confirm the times of nets please. Might be worth re-posting this as a news item too. Thanks
Chris, nets are Mondays 6-8pm UEA Sportpark, 60p entrance fee.
Nigel a keen ‘fisherman’… a few fines there then!! Great to have him on board.
Do we have any pre-season friendlies arranged? If so, what are the dates please?
Skippers not overfussed about friendlies. Eaton on Sat 21st, MNSL V Dereham on 22nd. Might have club game weekend before if weather okay.
I am away on holiday from 16th to 20th April, inclusive so cricket that weekend is unlikely for me and the season starts the following one.
Fear not everyone, I have already done enough to impress the selectors for the Dereham game. You never know, I might even have a net sometime between now & then…
Just so no one is put of by the cricket force day, the day does not start at 9:30pm as advertised it starts at 9:30 am!! Hope to see as lots of you there even if its for just a couple of hours :D
All player profiles updated. New profiles added for ‘officials’.
Rumour has it nets tonight are outdoors!?
No. Two more weeks at UEA. Hopefully the nets at Melton Park will be ready after Cricketforce on Saturday.
Good luck to the U12s in the Regional Finals of the Lords Taverners Tournament @ UEA on Saturday. Hopefully I’ll see the rest of you at the ground!
Please can someone confirm how much the subs are this year?
£35 if paid before 01.06.12 – after that £45 . . . .
Chefy i’m not sure if this post (milestones 2012) is working?? Help??
It works for me Bubbs, and not much usually does . . . .
Cheers, Bubs. And I have 24 games to get them in, to do it faster.
Bubbs – when you write Milestones, are they not Millstones hanging around players’ necks?
1st round Bernard Matthews Cup Hardingham (A) to be played by 10th June
Thanks John and Leo glad to see its working :D
If the weather is nice tomorrow evening, does anyone fancy a net and a bit of fielding outdoors? Start at 6? Would be nice to play some more cricket before I go back to Hull
"Informal" nets tonight at 6pm. Anyone welcome
Brilliant to see another new face to bolsetr the first team’s challenge. Well done Hubert.
Shed I’m available for the tour game as i finish work at 12:30 on the day so can be there to open up the bar etc…
The only positive from that Mark, is that players can feel more comfortable about going to watch the Canaries beat Liverpool, rather than playing.

Any news on whether the A team game can go ahead tomorrow or is the ground just to wet?
Meeting Mike at ground this p.m. We’ll decide then on tonight’s Junior Coaching & likelihood of play tomorrow.
New kit now with Kim. She’ll distribute asap. No kit without payment. Any ordered kit not paid for will be re-destributed.
A Team v Narborough on 28/4 is OFF due to waterlogged Melton Park.
C Team game at Town Close also off.
Is Junior coaching U9s on tonight? Or cancelled due to current drought conditions!Thanks
Will kit for those who have paid be available for collection at nets on Tuesday?
The game against Narborough on sunday has been cancelled. The weather for the weekend doesn’t look like it’s going to improve unfortunately.
Delivery of kit Tuesday,Kim will try but will be hard to deliver all at once as she only has a small car & kids will be with her and she doesn’t know who will be turning up.
If people wish to contact Kim about Tuesday, she will try her best to get them delivered but please don’t expect Kim to do indiviual deliveries as this isn’t fair on her. Mob 07960656631 Regards Chicken

Great Melton is on twitter. Follow it on @GreatMeltonCC for news and some score updates.
Tonight’s U11 & U13 games are off. U13s rearranged for tomorrow night at Cringleford.
Thanks for Twitter advice Mark. I do not use Twitter nor show my Face, so any score update posts on the Shoutbox are most valuable. I thus create the rod for my own back? I know . . . .
Everyone – The fundraising page is now online – more online shops will be added in due course.
John, ever thought of perhaps trying twitter or maybe showing your face? Either would be most useful, as entering score updates via the shout box is not the easiest mobile forum to use.
I have a solution for the non-twitter users – I will put a twitter “feed” right here on the site, so you can see whats being said on there “live”
done! below this shoutbox are the last 5 tweets made, and daily at 9pm a summary of all the tweets made will be posted as a news item.
Thanks for your post JB, I had to delete it though…”news” posted on the site goes to Facebook and Twitter now… It sadly wasn’t news worthy :(

Mustn’t forget the Champagne moment at Hardingham yesterday … Marcus on to bowl trying to repair confidence after the 6 a side. Bowls 5 tidy balls but as he starts his run up Big Shed is driving past ….
… Big Shed gives him the Wooooooaaah as Mini runs up, leading to a rank long hop which was smashed to the fence!
I would appreciate as many cameras/photos as possible at melton this sunday – for this years dinner promo video!
no probs chefy we will have one or two cameras there for the plaque/weather vein unveiling, See you all Sunday :D
I’m pleased to say former player and good friend Duncan “Monster” Scott is back in Norwich this weekend. I’m hoping he can see Melton Park tomorrow before heading North.
Bubbs – the Norwich game at Newcastle is on Sunday because of the Toon Thursday European game SO even less excuse not to lend a valuable hand?
Indeed!! Good point JB Even less excuse :D
Just a Quick shout, Putting the wicket to bed is ON this morning so if you can spare an hour or so it would be excellent hopefully will see some of you there :D
A quick thank you to all captains and managers for this past season; & congratulations to all award winners.
Well said Leo. The Dinner was enjoyable too. Can someone confirm the dates for AGM and Christmas Drinks if they are known please. Ta.
AGM Wednesday 5th December, but as for the boozers’ maraudering, I leave that to better livers than mine. I will email an AGM Agenda and the 2011 Minutes nearer the time.
Winter Senior Nets are booked. More formal notification will be posted in the New Year, but it’s Mondays 6 – 8 at UEA from mid Feb ( STC )
Thanks JB. For Christmas drinks Fri 7 or Fri 14 Dec seem to the options given we usually go for a Friday early in Dec. Any views?
I recommend Friday 7th Dec, because it can be combined with a trip to see The Cream Horns play at The Walnut Tree Shades
Friday 7th would seem a good bet especially if the Horns are in action!
Agreed Steve, it would make a good variation to our usual night out. Let’s say Fri 7 Dec.
Hi Chefy. I’m sure you are extremely busy..any plans of putting the end of season video on the site?
GMCC AGM – Once the AGM reports have arrived, I will create an AGM package to email to all, at least 7 days before 05.12.12
Hi, can the date of the AGM be confirmed please. The report on the dinner mentions Wed 4th Dec but Tues is 4th. JB mentions 5th in the shoutbox below
Sorry Chris. Sorry everybody. GMCC deserves a better secretary? Wednesday 5th December 2012 for our AGM
Thanks JB, don’t worry you do a cracking job for us. Chris
Main AGM points – ‘Sid’ Waddell 1st Team skip; Leeroy, A team; Liam Hughes, B Team; Simon Carding C team; George Bunn Sunday / Midweek; subs / fees stay the same.
Thanks Leo. Good luck to all new and continuing captains.
AGM Minutes now sent to all my Senior list – and I have placed a very modest order via our shopping portal. Brilliant – easy – smooth – thanks Cheffy – come on you others, join in???
Great night out with Cream Horns. Good turn out.
Thanks to all who came along last night. Hope you were suitably entertained.
Chefy can you put play.com on (if possible) as I don’t tend to use Amazon?? :D
Just watching socceram – new challenge pre match next season – 1 stump challenge. Merry Christmas everyone.
A happy new year to you all. Unsurprisingly things have gone a bit dead on the website - probably everyone's using Facebook! Keep the posts coming though. There may be potential new players looking at the website!
RiP Tony Grieg and CMJ. Both will be greatly missed by all cricket fans.
The new junior pavilion has been erected at the ground – and very nice it is too! Thanks Sir Edward. Some of us going down on Saturday morning to do a few jobs. Any help welcome.
The Cream Horns @ Walnut Tree Shades, Sat 2nd Feb.
Make that Friday 1st February. See you there?
In view of this superb weather (?) you may wish to peruse the Alliance and Sunday fixture which are presently on the respective websites. Enjoy
Chefy, I’ve emailed you about a couple of things on both hotmail & work a/c but the work one bounced back. Have you changed it? If so, could you email me your new address? Thanks
Hey Steve and everyone else.. I received your email on my hotmail and replied :)
Like the look of the revamped site Chefy. Have updated About, Fixtures, History & Officials. Will get to work on Profiles.
Chefy, when I update the profiles is there any way of ensuring they appear on the site in alphabetical order?
Thanks for bringing this to my attention Steve and JB, they are ordered alphabetically now.. This was a manual task though, so if you add new players I may need to resort it.
Chefy, I’ve updated all the profiles and tried to set them in alphabetical order by altering the date/time etc but all the new ones appear at the end. Help!
I have reordered them for you .. there’s a link under the posts menu called “reorder” – im not sure if this appears for you or not – but if it does, thats what I used.
Thanks, mate. I’m just doing one for Connor Stearman then I think they are complete apart from a few pics.
No worries. See if the option is there for you or not, if it’s not I’ll get it done.
Ref: C Team News Article – NCFC vs WBA is actually on the Sunday (12th May), so no clash with Sat cricket that week.
Thanks Shafty. That’s good. I’ll alter the news article..
Profiles all updated. Can’t see the re-order button Chefy, so you’ll need to put the final 3 in the correct order. Thanks.
C team promotion is fantastic news! I am looking forward to the challenge (if Widge does not need me).
Done Steve, Also added a “Latest News” page.. New front page video rendering as I type.
I’m FINALLY happy with the way the Player profile page is displaying now.. Take a look
Chef. On profiles can’t there be a way of skipping to players by reference to alphabet rather than guessing what page a player might be on?
Also is there no twitter button anymore?
I did reply to your txt asking the same thing – in short, no, however the player profiles span only 3 pages now – not too tricky to navigate. What kind of twitter button would you like, and where?
Are there any plans to include an online version of the end of season stats booklet?
Yes, that would be a great idea if it’s possible.
I have spoken with Neal about the stats. He intends to add the current one as a pdf and put on previous years too.
Good work out at nest last night. My back and shoulder ache like anything…
Ok people please bear with me whilst i attempt to put the stats booklet on to the website (i am no expert at these things!!)
Kit order going in this week so, if you want clothing items for the start of the season, contact me now!
Junior fixtures now published on the website so put some dates in your diaries – there are certainly plenty of games! Women’s & U17s coming soon.
Is anybody out there? It’s a pity no-one’s using the shoutbox any more. I suppose everyone tweeting or using facebook! Oh well, such is life!
I’m here Chair! Just trying to keep warm.
Took me a while to find the main shout box page in this new format. I liked it when it was on the homepage. The new site looks very slick and Chefy has done a great job. See everyone on Sat for cricket force !
I agree with Jethro. A magnificent website and many congratulations to Chefy, but could this Shoutbox be nearer the user entry level?
Groundsman’s container (& Bowls Club one) broken into last night. Not too much taken but anyone who sees anything suspicious – or can help with security – let us know.
Great to see Godder’s picture in EDP24 / Sport today – with City’s youth team of 1982/3! Has not changed a bit.
Great Day on Saturday. Thanks to everyone who helped out!
2013 Milestones now added into the stats section of the website – Big thanks to Neal for sorting this for us!
COMING SOON!! 2013 Fineable Items. They will be on the website this year so you can all see each week what they are for the following week!! :D
Is the Mattishall game on today (Sunday 14) or yesterday? Any scores if yesterday? Cheers.
The Mattishall game is this afternoon, Jethro, with yours truly back in the fold…!!
The cricket season is here at last!!! Sun shining, temperature rising and it would be the start of the cricket season without the wind blowing a gale to remind us its only April!! Good luck to everyone in 2013 :D
Thanks Leo, good luck to the team at Mattishall today.
I have compiled for myself a Senior Fixtures list, and have noticed the number of weekend friendlies. Excellent, and thank you.
The Great Melton CC Coaches and Managers handbook. An excellent publication.
Please could captains, players or even supporters post up team news, score updates and results on the shoutbox throught the summer. I love seeing this & can’t be the only one! Thanks
I agree Chris. The shoutbox seems to have gone a bit dead! Nothing about Sunday’s game at Mattishall. Come on fellas, not all of us are on Facebook!
Any team news for Bunwell away tomorrow?
Concurred. It is good for all of us to know whether games have taken place & what the score were. Is there anybody out there….?
GMCC (193) beat Bunwell (191) by 2 runs. D. Greenslade 3fer, J. Bickel 2 fer. Chefy 50* (retired), Clarkey 48(ish).
Jethro – rest assured that when the league campaign starts there will be a regular flow of match reports charting the highs and lows of GMCC!
My Apologies for the lack of reports I have posted the Mattishall report and the Bunwell report will follow sometime today :D
Great to read all the news, thanks everyone!
We are underweigh. The season has an early momentum. It"s great to read these introductory posts for 2013. Thanks to the reporters.
Give me time to instantly correct my typos please. Too fast Jethro, and you have not been that for seasons?
I was never fast let alone too fast …well maybe as a bowler!
Hmm, you sure about that Chris?
errr – must have been when Mike was keeping !!
Great melton Ladies v Garboldisham Ladies 11am start
L Cadge(Captain) H Brook(Keeper) L Brook L Edge R Edge R Greenslade R Hustler L Marzolini L Miners A Palmer E Reay
Come off it Jethro, you made me look like Waqar Younis!
ATTENTION!!! All captains & managers I will leave all the score books in the pavilion by Thursday evening so you can collect them before the season :D
Richard/ Simon if you could use 1st XI and C team books for Saturday that would be excellent :D
I assume I’m not required this Saturday?
ATTENTION!! All scorebooks for junior and senior teams are now in the pavilion. Please collect, I will send an email to remind you all as well. Good luck to all teams for the season!! :-D
Thanks for covering those scorebook duties Bubbs. It’s a chore, and thus a valued contribution.
I’ve just brought myself a new bat does anyone know places I can get it knocked in?
Put a ball in a sock and sit for c8 – 10 hrs knocking it in all over / round, Harpo.
Yes but if I was looking for someone else to do that?
Woody – if you want a game on Saturday you may want to send a message to Simon Carding.
Confirmed team for B/C’s v Eaton. Meet at CNS by 12:00.

A C team report of notable quality Leo, but is an umpire allowed this degree of bias?
Just a little disappointed the Chairman took out ‘nascent’ in describing the league table; but he left everything else in…
Sorry Leo. I didn’t want everybody scambling for their dictionaries! I’ll put it back if it worries you!
No. Just liked it because I did not need a dictionary.
Leo – “Strangled at the outset…”….well played! ‘Peaches’ gave it away this week, ‘Oscillating Wildly’ last week. Are they all gonna be 70′s/80′s bands???!!!

The latest 1st team report is online!!
Your report is not quite imperforate Rob. I had to look up Orphic. But delightful reading, for me. I guess some colleagues are chuntering about your prose.
Not as brobdingnagian as my reports usually are, but a fine read. Let’s make sure we see similar prose, whatever the result is!
OK, updated the report for the couple of spelling and grammatical errors… Scoreboard pic added too.
Following yet another cancellation because, this time, Swaffham couldn’t raise a team, the U15s will take on the U17 girls at Melton tonight. U11s away to Mattishall.
It’s great shame about the U15 call-off, but the resulting Inhouse game sounds fun. I guess the girls will be very focussed on beating the lads. Quite right too.
The U11 game V Mattishall tonight is AWAY. I originally put it on the shoutbox as a home game. I’m having a ‘mare’ today! See you at Mattishall!
B team meet Melton Park 12.20pm on Saturday. Good luck boys
A good win for the U11s this evening.
GMCC 340-1 (335 nett)F Hughes 20*, S Earley 20*, M Carter 13*

An email from Colin King MNSCL to say an error has been made, and that Melton stay in Prem and Gt Witchingham are relegated. I suspect this may go to appeal but . . . . .
JB, that’s because Gt Witchingham couldn’t raise a side for Sunday but the table was initially calculated on the basis of a no result for rain.
The table was then corrected with us awarded 21pts and Great Witchingham -10pts

thaumaturgically . . . . Simbo you’re having a laugh ? Tell us you needed to look that up in a Thesaurus.
I think it means something along the lines of ‘resembling a wizard’..
Or ” by means of magic” – but dare Simbo claim he knew that BEFORE he began writing quizzes etc? The Simbosilence is heavy .
Sorry, it was either that or a Despicable Me reference… and yes, I did know the word, all reports are written without the aid of a thesaurus!!
Congratulations Rob on your vocabulary. I am envious, but too idle to learn new words other than those with which you provoke me.
