Statement from the Mitcham Cricket Club

We are horrified by the tragic destruction of the Burn Bullock pub in last night’s fire, although extremely relieved that no one was hurt. Fortunately our historic cricket pavilion has not been damaged. It does, however, seem like the upstairs function room in the Burn Bullock where the Cricket Scorers and Umpires’ Association was formed has now been lost.

We’ve cancelled todays’ pre-season friendly cricket match, but expect to be continuing with cricket for juniors, adults and women as normal for the 2024 season. The Club Executive is holding an emergency meeting this Sunday.

We will be opening the pavilion to the public 12-2pm on Sunday 21st April for anyone in the community that wants to come in for a cuppa and a chat.

The freeholder of the Burn Bullock is our freeholder too. We await to see their response to this. We will also continue to work with the council to ensure around 350 years of cricket being played on the Green can continue long into the future.
