Angus Fraser

Angus Fraser will join MCC’s main committee on October 1 along with John Barclay, Hugo Loudon and Robert Griffiths

Middlesex managing director of cricket Angus Fraser is part of a quartet to be elected for three-year terms on Marylebone Cricket Club’s 20-strong main committee.

Former England and Middlesex seamer Fraser, John Barclay, Hugo Loudon and Robert Griffiths will take up their positions on October 1 - the day after Matthew Fleming, Charles Fry, Christopher Martin-Jenkins and Colin Maber retire as elected members.

Barclay played for Sussex from 1970 to 1986, the last six seasons as captain, before moving into administration within the game and managing two England tours.

At 33, Loudon will become the youngest member of the committee. A chartered accountant, he has played MCCU and county second XI cricket and remains a regular in MCC games.

Griffiths, who practises law on the Queen’s Counsel, has been chairman of MCC’s laws sub-committee since 2008 and has had three previous terms on the MCC committee.

MCC chairman Oliver Stocken said: “MCC will continue to be well served from October, with a committee intake that boasts an excellent amount of cricketing skills and expertise. I look forward to welcoming everyone on to the committee in the autumn.”
