Welcome to the pages of the oldest privately-owned cricket club IN THE WORLD!!
"In August 1726, the 'Men of London and Surrey' faced [Edward Stead's side] for twenty-five guineas at Kennington Common. Two years later his team was matched against the Duke of Richmond for 'a large sum of money' at Cox Heath. In the same year Stead and another of cricket's early patrons, Sir William Gage, played an eleven-a-side game for fifty guineas at the Earl of Leicester's park Penshurst. Stead's men won after leading by 52 to 45 on the first innings. The final margin of victory is not recorded. It was the third occasion that summer that the 'Men of Kent' had defeated the Sussex team.' p. 47 'More Than a Game', John Major
There are few more splendid places to play cricket in Kent, so if you're browsing & looking for somewhere to play.....give us a call, we're always pleased to welcome new players to our beautiful home.
In 2010 we merged with The Buckhurst Cricket Club and expanded our League sides to two. The 1sts have won the 1st Division Cup in 2012 and 2013 and the 2nds are playing in the 4th Division (in 2014 finishing 4th).
We are always looking for keen players of all abilities to join the club. We now run two League Teams in the Kent County Village League, as well as a Sunday and Midweek sides.
