to the home of Congresbury Cricket Club on the web. 2019 is a special year for our village and cricket club. Local village cricket matches were first played during the 1840s so to mark the Club's proud history and celebrate 175 years of village cricket, there will be a week of events staring on June 28.
Our 1st XI competes in the Bristol and North Somerset Division of the West of England Premier League. The 2nd XI, promoted in 2018, plays in the Bristol & District League.
For 2019 Justin Yau, who joined us from Torquay as player-coach in 2108, takes over as 1st XI skipper. Mike Fisher, legendary 1st XI batter and club veteran, will captain the 2nd XI.
As ever, we are grateful to the support we continue to get from our sponsors. Health and life insurer Vitality continues as our official main partner. Computershare, the global financial administration company, is sponsor of youth cricket while local SEAT main dealer Holders of Congresbury continues as a key partner.
Thanks also to all the local
businesses who support us – their banners help brighten up the ground.
Junior cricket, the lifeblood of the club, continues to flourish. Junior matches
are on Monday and Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings. Practice nights are on
Tuesdays for the juniors and Wednesdays for seniors. All Stars cricket for our youngest players is on Fridays.
New players, both juniors and seniors, are always welcome – or just come along
and watch the action and support the club as a social member.
