Over Two Centuries of Village Cricket
East Bridgford Cricket Club is one of the oldest clubs in Nottinghamshire and can trace its beginnings until well back into the early 1800s. It is also the oldest organisation in the village after the church of St Peter, the earliest record of a match being in the Nottingham Journal of 20th August 1814.
The club's two teams will enjoy the Summer in different leagues of the Gunn and Moore South Notts League with all home fixtures played on Butt Field. The first XI will be playing in league D having won their truncated mini-league in 2020. This league offers spectators the chance to see good quality competitive league cricket. The second XI move into league J where games are no less fiercely fought! They were runners-up in their mini-league last year.
Indoor pre–season practice usually takes place from early January until the start of the season in late April at Trent Bridge but of course this has not been possible in 2021. Instead, as we do each year, practice takes place on Butt Field each Wednesday evening from 6.00pm. This entails a mixture of net practice and some fielding drills. Cricketers of all ages and ability are welcome to attend these sessions and to play for the club.
If you don't fancy playing we'd love you to support the club in any manner you can. We have a list of Vice Presidents who help the club in a variety of ways. If you have a particular skill or interest that you think the club could utilise, do please let one of the officers know by emailing us on: email@example.com
Home games start at 1.00pm and we are always glad to see spectators enjoying the action as they wander around the boundary or spend a while watching from one the many benches. So whether you spend a moment or two or a whole afternoon watching you are very welcome!
