We are an informal and a friendly club. We like to win games, of course, and matches are competitive, but we play cricket for enjoyment, not to add stress to our lives on a Sunday. We aim to provide a convivial afternoon of village cricket in the English countryside, for players and spectators alike.
We play up to 15 friendly games each season (April-September) on Sunday afternoons, against teams from the Suffolk/east Cambs/north Essex area. Plus, (if time and weather allow), a Single Wicket Competition that we try to slot in, usually at the end of the season in September. At home matches we probably serve the best cricket teas in the UK, if not the World. After the game, we retire to the Compasses, our welcoming village local, which serves a selection of real ales and other beverages.
We have more than 20 players 'on the books', ranging in age from early teens to mid-sixties with a breadth of abilities! They are never all available for any one match, so we warmly welcome new recruits who wish to play the odd game - or every game - in a relaxed atmosphere. The Club can provide bats, pads, gloves if necessary, but players need to bring their own whites/footwear.
Membership of the Club is just £10 for the whole year and match fees are £3 (£1 for those unemployed & students), so it’s likely we have the cheapest 'subs' in Suffolk and possibly the whole country.
