Middlesex Cricket Club of New York completed their seventh season in the Brooklyn Cricket League. For the sixth season Middlesex made it to the semi-final stages of the 40 overs, and Twenty20 formats. Mark Audain former Middlesex Captain, former St. Vincent and The Grenadines and Windward Islands youth player topped the batting and bowling chart.

The season was marred by some controversial decisions by the Brooklyn Cricket League Executive committee, Middlesex felt the club was unfairly penalized with the evidence which was presented to the committee. The rules was changed or ignored to accommodate different club, Middlesex felt the facts and rules was ignored that was presented. A perfect example, Middlesex won the semi-finals of the 40 overs competition, the semi-finalist protested over an alleged illegal player and was award the final. But in previous weeks the semi-finalist committed the same offense. All in all Middlesex enjoyed another productive cricket season.
Middlesex will like to extend its condolences to Dominic Audain and Mark Audain on the passing of their beloved scorer and supporter Camille Natasha Richards, Dominic’s mother, Mark Audain ex-wife, she was 44 years old, and she was laid to rest October 14th, 2015 and will be surely missed by the club and BCL supporters.
