The pictures 'highlight' the enjoyment had on and off the field in places across Europe (Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Portugal, Malta, France, Hungary, Croatia, Spain, Corfu, Czech Republic).

Since October 1998
Welcome to the all new (well, new hosting company, same fun packed website) where you will find all sorts of goodies relating to LMCC - who are just five, yes, an overthrow, away from our Centenery!
For 2017 we are looking for new members - all abilities welcome - to join up and have a bit of flannel competition as well as make new friends and aquaintances. Many current members have grown up, ok, grown older at the club and consider Manor related escapades as something to look back on with great pride - and embarrassment!
The U15 team is thriving and please, via the contact link in the menu, any new enquiries welcome.
After 20 April, we will move to weekly outdoor nets, Thursday, 6pm, at the Manor with a coach.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

If you didn't spot it, basically the match fee is £7 for a senior regardless if you are a member or not - as we always had, the fee is the same. Members will simply take priority when teams are being picked.
Membership will be waived for new players (played zero matches prior to 2016) but they will not be guaranteed selection unless they wish to pay the membership.
These players will also pay membership match fees throughout the course of the season.
TEAS - 2017
Members when requested to provide teas for home games, agree or find someone else to do them - spend up to max £35 - providing an array of sandwiches, savouries, cakes etc - don't forget milk and maybe tea-bags & sugar (ask previous tea maker re supplies!)
