The one-time Test spinner took 167 wickets in 50 Tests for England, including an impressive five-wicket haul 12 times.
Monty spent eight years between 2001 and 2009 at Northants, before joining Sussex in 2010 - where he stayed for a further three years.

Shenfield Fantasy Cricket League.
This is the year to invest a meagre £5 in the Shenfield Fantasy Cricket league. For the first time the league is powered direct from the Play Cricket Stats. As soon as the match results are posted your team will earn its rightful place in the league.
Don’t keep this to yourself! Get the whole family signed up. OK … they’ll not pick you, but you’ll prove them wrong with your 10 points per catch. Yes it hit you in the midriff but you clung on manfully.
At the start of the season none of us are sure who to pick, but this year you can enter the transfer market as the season progresses.
Don’t be left out when the conversation turns to your fantasy team.
Sign up here now!
Your support will help the club raise much needed funds.

Message from our President, Peter Rider.
SCC looks forward to the coming 2019 Season with great optimism.
The return of former players Haris Mahmood, and new skipper Roy Smith will improve the 1st X1, and a further sprinkling of new experienced signings should strengthen the collective, enabling a strong showing from all four teams.
Roy’s first team squad picked up a winners medal at the weekend winning the six-a-side competition at Colchester, hopefully the first of many trophies this season! See photo.
We are indebted to Dave Castell co-ordinating the many coaches that give up so much of their time to the huge Junior section.
Our long-term “Academy” goal, should now be to develop even more cricketers to achieve Premier League standard.
Have a great Summer!

Message below to Colts parents from Matt Pryor, Colts Chairman .
As Christmas and the arrival of 2019 becomes a distant memory, thoughts turn to the coming cricket season.

2018 was the most successful season in Colts history at Shenfield Cricket Club, not only on the pitch but off it as well, with nearly 250 local children having registered at the club and that number is set to rise this year.

Volunteers are the life blood of any sports club and the Colts section at Shenfield Cricket Club is fortunate to have a number of talented and motivated people who wear many hats in ensuring the season is a success for the children.

With the season commencing in April and running for 16 weeks, the following roles are ideal for Mums, Dads, Guardians, grandparents and our older Colts to get involved and contribute in a variety of ways.

Coaching Support Assistants
Assist our qualified coaching staff in helping our younger players develop at coaching sessions on a Thursday and/or Friday.

Allstars Coaching Assistants
With a record of 65 children registering to take part in this 8-week course last season, help is always needed in running these fun sessions. The sessions are to start in May and will be held on a Friday evening.

Junior Team Managers
With the intention of entering 12 teams (U8-U16) including a girls’ team into various league and cup competitions this season, it is imperative we have enough age group managers for each team.

Junior Team Scorers
Each team will require scorers, helping the Junior Team Managers on match days.

Age Group Match Day Helpers
There are many tasks required of a team manager on match days, especially when playing at home and the more help available, the easier it is.
Tasks include:
Setting the pitch up (as well as tidying up afterwards)
Warm Up drills with the players
Scoring
Organising Teas

Getting involved is a great way to support your child and the team.
Help and advice is available from myself or any of the Colts committee if you want to get involved in any of these roles.

Colts Event Organisers
From BBQs to a weekly raffle, it is events that galvanise the club and its members whilst raising valuable funds.

Volunteering to help the Colts in any way at Shenfield Cricket Club is a fun way of getting to know other parents and is about being part of a team – full help, support and any training for all the roles is always given and there are workshops planned prior to the start of the season, so you will never be left to work on your own.

If you – or anyone you know are interested in joining the Colts team at SCC or if you have any questions, please contact me via email (matthewpryor@hotmail.co.uk) as without you, the club cannot continue to improve the experiences of our young members.
