Totteridge Green, London N20 8PB
The Old Millhillians' Cricket Club has a rich history, having been established in 1878, playing cricket in the Hertfordshire leagues, initially as a means of offering competitive club cricket for former members of Mill Hill School. Over recent years its member base has extended to welcome players and spectators from outside the old boys base, but it has continued to retain at its heart a core of school leavers, with over 30 Mill Hill old boys playing competitive games for the Club in 2007.
The Club has enjoyed a rich history littered with colourful characters, and not inconsiderable success on the field from its home in the picturesque setting of Headstone Lane. The club has been home to a number of high quality players, including current internationals Justin Langer and Darren Sammy and for many years the club also hosted the popular annual 6 a side benefit match for Middlesex CC players.
In 2006 the OMCC 1st XI had its most successful season of recent years, claiming the Herts League Division 1 title to secure promotion back to the Home Counties' league.
As a result of a merger between two of the most venerable cricket clubs in North London, Totteridge CC (founded 1881) and Old Millhillians CC (founded 1878), Totteridge Millhillians Cricket Club came into existence in January 2008.
The merger of OMCC with Totteridge CC last season has proved a great success both on and off the field. Although Headstone Lane will be missed as a playing venue, the picturesque setting at Totteridge Green is hard to beat. ..
