1st XI KCVL Division 1 – Captain: Ben Brandt
After a very respectable fourth place finish in the top division of the Kent County Village League in 2018, our 1st XI went two better last year to finish with a club record 2nd in the top division.
After leading the side to 2nd, Muddy Waters makes way for our new club skipper: Ben Brandt. He will be leading the side from 2020 onwards.
League games (40 overs per side) usually begin at 1.30pm on Saturday afternoons and we will play each of the other nine teams in Division One home and away over the course of the season. Fixtures and League Table, as well as a host of Statistics are available from the ECB.
2nd XI KCVL Division 7 – Captain: Ben Harrison
The 2nd XI currently plays in Division Six of the Kent County Village League and there are high hopes for a strong promotion push again in 2020, after achieving that feat in 2019. As with the first team, the matches start at 1.30pm and are 40 overs per side.
The 2nd XI has struggled with availability in the last five years, but 2019 showed how far the 2nd team can go with numbers to back up the talent. Skipper Ben Harrison will continue to lead our 2nd team this year, hoping for the magical double promotion. Fixtures and League Table, as well as a host of Statistics are available from the ECB.
While Sunday cricket is in national decline, we recognise it as an important route for young players transitioning to adult cricket, as well as for those returning to the game after a spell of not playing the sport. With this in, mind we will be joining up with our neighbours Groombridge Cricket Club to offer a number of development fixtures throughout the Summer of 2018. We are in the process of making arrangements with GCC and the clubs will alternately hosting fixtures at their respective grounds – each will provide five or six players per game.
