Clive Gristwood

Level 1 Coach; Right-hand batsman.

Clive loves his cricket and, having been an ever-willing ‘12th Man’ for a number of seasons, has now established himself as a regular C Team player.  He’s contributed some valuable runs, scored his first 50 in the 2019 President’s match and has snaffled many a slip-catch for the Cs.  He has also played a major role in Melton’s junior set-up as Chairman of the Junior Committee from 2009-10, a Level 1 Coach and as manager of various junior teams.  Having managed the Under 13 team for 2 seasons from 2006-2007, Clive turned his attentions to managing the C Team in 2008 and, in the 5 seasons as the C Team established itself, he did a brilliant job. Clive then took on the role of U11 Team Manager in 2013-14 and enjoyed a well-deserved day at Lords as his youngsters gave an on-pitch Kwik Cricket demonstration in the lunch break of the Ashes Test.  His U11s became the first Melton side – other than the girls – to win a County trophy when they beat Swardeston in the Terry Moore Trophy in 2014.  Clive moved up with them first as U13s then U15s before finally relinquishing the managers’ reins in 2017.  However, he still assists at the Friday night coaching sessions and his behind-the-secenes efforts have resulted in him winning the Aldous Clubman of the Year Shield in 2008 and 2016.
