WELCOME TO OUR 2014 SEASON.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW LOOK CLUB WEBSITE. IF YOU’RE A CRICKETER, A LOCAL, OR JUST BROWSING, WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING OF INTEREST. WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING VILLAGES IN THE AREA THAT STILL HAVE A CRICKET CLUB. WE HAVE, WITHOUT DOUBT, ONE OF THE MOST PICTURESQUE GROUNDS IN NORFOLK WITH THE ADDITION OF OUR FANTASTIC NEW CRICKET PAVILION, THE FACILITIES WE ARE ABLE TO OFFER ARE SECOND TO NONE, THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY. WE HAVE ROLL-ON-COVERS, A MOBILE BATTING CAGE AND A BOWLING MACHINE.

WE RECEIVED A £30K GRANT FROM NORFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL, IN JANUARY 2013, THROUGH THEIR COMMUNITY BUILD FUND PROGRAMME, TO HELP US COMPLETE OUR PAVILION. WITH THE ASSISTANCE AND GENEROUS DONATIONS FROM LOCAL BUSINESSES AND TRADESMEN WE COMPLETED OUR PROJECT ON BUDGET AND PRODUCED A TRULY ICONIC VILLAGE CRICKET PAVILION. WE HAVE WON PRAISE FROM THE ECB AND THE NORFOLK CRICKET BOARD FOR OUR EFFORTS. THE CLUB, THROUGH SECRETARY JOHN RUDDICK, ALSO RECEIVED AN OUTSTANDING SERVICES TO CRICKET AWARD (AN OSCA) IN THE NAT-WEST CRICKETFORCE CATEGORY. THE ANNUAL CEREMONY WAS HELD AT LORDS CRICKET GROUND AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER.

WE RUN TWO TEAMS. A SATURDAY XI THAT PLAY IN THE WEST-NORFOLK CRICKET LEAGUE, PLUS A SUNDAY XI THAT PLAY IN THE MID-NORFOLK SUNDAY CRICKET LEAGUE. BOTH TEAMS PERFOMED WELL IN 2013, WITH THE SUNDAY XI GAINING PROMOTION TO DIVISION 2.
