Obituary for Ian Metcalf
One of Enfield Cricket Club’s most iconic cricketers has sadly passed away. Ian Metcalf or “Mecky” as he was known to friend and foe alike made his 1st XI debut against Haslingden Bentgate on 16th July 1960. He was a hard hitting batsman who liked to take on the “quickies” and there were plenty of those around in the 60’s Lancashire league. Ian’s first league 50 came in May 1961 against a Todmorden side whose professional was Frank “Typhoon” Tyson.
He won the Lancashire Evening Telegraph Tankard for the fastest amateur fifty in 1964 against Bacup when he hit his 50 in just 26 minutes, and again in 1967 when he scored his half century in 35 minutes hitting the majority of his runs off the West Indies fast bowler Chester Watson.
In 1965 Ian won the Lion Trophy for the second most amateur runs in the league and scored over 500 runs again in 1970. He went on to make over 7,000 runs for Enfield in the League and Worsley cup matches including 26 fifties in a 1st XI career lasting until 1981.
In 1968 he took over the captaincy of the side and with Dik Abed as professional Enfield won the Lancashire League Championship for the first time in 25 years. After relinquishing the captaincy in 1969 he took over again in 1970 and continued as captain for the next 7 years, the club wining another league championship in 1071 and two Holland cups in 1970 and 1972 as well as finishing runners up in the 1973 Worsley Cup Final. Handing over the mantle of captain to Geoff Dixon in 1977 Ian remained an important part of the team that won another league championship in 1977 and two Worsley Cup triumphs in 1978 and 1979 with Maden Lal as professional.
Ian had a number of business interests including 4Sports that sponsored the Worsley Cup in the 1980’s. He travelled the world watching cricket and meeting many of the international cricketers he played against in the league.
Mecky was a larger than life personality and had a huge fund of cricket experiences, sories and anecdotes that were second to none, some printable, some not! His life was cricket and he will be missed.
After so long we are finally nearly there for a very different cricket season to start. It was great to see so many of our junior players return to training last week and then the seniors followed. We are very much looking forward to some cricket played now, albeit a little different than normal. Hopefully the sun will reappear soon. With the bar opening and with a face lift, I'm really looking forward to seeing our members, family and friends return to Enfield
Juniors cricket U9s ...
Its not just the seniors who are enjoying a return to cricket - the U9s were in action against Read CC and started the summer off in style with a great win with some fantastic batting and bowling from all the team. It was great to see some old and new faces in the team and how they have all developed over the lock down.
Juniors cricket U11s ...
The U11s played Clitheroe CC at home and on a close matched game it came down to the last ball of the game to decide, and eventually decided on fallen wickets. Unfortunately it was a loss to Enfield but they battled all the way.
Juniors cricket U13s ...
The U13s were supposed to be playing Burnley CC but due to the typical East Lancashire summer weather it was rained out. Here's hoping if it get rearranged Jimmy Anderson turns up and shares a few helpful hints with our juniors. You never know Enfield might supply the next big name for England.
Juniors cricket U15s ...
The U15s were in action against Great Harwood and even with the limits of months of lockdown they have come on leaps and bounds. Showing how they have developed and building in to a strong team. It was unfortunate that they lost against their Great Harwood rivals.
Silenced the Noisy Neighbours
The 1st XI are on a role - after a fantastic result against Rishton the lads have done it again by beating Accrington by 39 runs on a hot sticky evening. Great work lads - lets see if Enfield can now be the Invincibles.
