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 present the club has Under 9, Under 12 and Under 14 teams, (boys & girls) who play competitive cricket in the Cambridgeshire youth league. Previous colts teams in the club have been very successful, winning league titles or finishing runners up. The colts section train indoors on Monday nights in the winter at Freman College sports hall. This moves outside to the clubs ground in the summer. Under 9's train on Sunday mornings 10-11, Under 12's Saturday mornings 10-11, and under 14's Saturday morning 11-12. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
