fleet cricket club
Fleet CC's first recorded match (a comfortable win against a Royal Engineers team) was noted in the 'Fleet Reporter' in September 1893, and the Club has been based at the current ground off Reading Road North since 1905.
The Club runs three Saturday sides. The Saturday 1st XI have been promoted to Div 1 of the Morrant Thames Valley League after finishing 2010 as champions in their division. The 2nd XI and 3rd XI also play in the TVL: the 2nd XI play in Div 5b in 2011 after they won promotion for the second year in succession in 2010; the 3rds play in Div 9a.
The Sunday team plays in the Three Counties Cricket League and also has a number of friendlies during the season. In addition the Club has a thriving junior section and in 2011 we are running teams at U17, U15 (two), U13 (three), U11 (two) and U9 (two). We are running a girls U13 team again, girls U16 for the first time, and also aim to field a ladies team for the first time.
Club sponsors include lastminute.com and Lynchford Tyres. The Junior section has also benefited from the donation by The Lord's Taverners of superb bags of kit for U11s, U13s and U15s in recent years. In 2009 the artificial wicket was resurfaced thanks to funding from Hampshire & IOW Community Foundation (Grassroots) and Hampshire County Council.
Fleet Cricket Club was granted full ClubMark accreditation in 2007, and has recently been reaccredited. ClubMark accreditation signifies that the Club is committed to providing a safe, effective, child friendly environment and has in place procedures and policies aligned with the ECB “Safe Hands Policy” relating to the welfare of young people in cricket. The Club has a Code of Conduct for members and guests which is displayed on the noticeboard in the Clubhouse (a copy can also be found on this website in the Community (Library) area of the site).
In the 'About Us' section of the site there are Web Links to local weather and to maps showing the location of Calthorpe Park (1st & 2nd XI matches) and details of the Army and Cody grounds used as alternates for 3rd XI and some junior matches.
