Mike Phoenix – Superstar Groundsman on the Web!

“I must have stuck my hand up during a moment of madness at an AGM in 1992”

After “Googling” Great Melton Cricket Club, a key part of the webmaster role (as we need to know how the club appears to potential new members, and opponents finding out where we are etc…) I came across this article from “Pitchcare Magazine” starring our very own superstar groundsman – Mike Phoenix.

Clearly our beloved groundsman hasn't let the fame & fortune that must surely have followed such an article as the ever-modest Mike seems to have kept the whole interview quite secret.

Nevertheless, he deserves both recognition and thanks for the fine work he does for the club (as does Grenners and the other grounds staff helpers!!) as without volunteers such as him, our ground wouldn't be the paradise that it is!
