Buntingford Cricket Club

Sponsored by Buntingford Social Club

Welcome to the official BCC website. The club was founded in 1980 with one side playing friendly games on a Sunday. The club now fields a 1st X1 and 2nd XI that play competitively in the Cambs & Hunts Cricket League on Saturdays. This follows eight successful years in the Herts & Essex League, in which both the 1st and 2nd XI's won league titles, culminating in 2009 when the 1st XI won their second Division 1 League title together with victories in the HECC League Cup Final and also the Keatley Cup Final.

Since joining the Cambs and Hunts League in 2011, the 1st XI has progressed from playing in Junior Division 1B to playing Senior Division 2 cricket. The 2nd XI play in Junior Division 4 south.

The club runs a progressive colts section. At the present time the club has Under 10, Under 12 and Under 14 teams (mixed sexes), who play competitive cricket in the Cambridgeshire youth league. As well as these 3 teams, we are pleased to announce that this season we will be running an all girls team (10-14yrs) that will be playing friendly games against all girl teams from other local clubs. Previous colts teams in the club have been very successful, winning league titles or finishing runners up. The Under 14's train on Saturday mornings 10am-1130am: The Under 12's on Wednesday evenings 630pm-730pm and the Under 10's on Sunday mornings 10am-11am. The coaching of the colts and the supervision of their games is undertaken by the club's qualified coaches. For all enquiries regarding colts, please contact Martin Coote on 01763271926/07803169989. Alternatively, you can email him at juliecoote@btinternet.com

The club pavilion is situated on the edge of the town, at the Norfolk Road Playing Field. The pavilion has home and away changing rooms and a separate umpires room (all with showers). In addition to this, the
pavilion has a first floor balcony for viewing games and a fully licensed bar.

The club is always on the lookout for new players. If you fancy a game, whatever your level, at a friendly and very sociable club, then we would love to hear from you. For all information, please contact
