Without a hitch cricket returned to Loring Hall on Saturday with the inter club friendly between the 5ths and 6ths.  A good crowd were in attendance for a few short speeches which included thanks to our fondly remembered ex president Brian Kennett and the grounds and pavilion committee members for their efforts in returning the second square to fit for purpose play and many other improvements to the Loring Hall facility,  We now have a good working relationship with Goldsmiths College and the groundsmen have worked wonders getting the square prepared.  Through much hard work by Paul Ladbrook, one of the club trustees, funding was obtained for covers, sight screens and a new scoreboard.

Those present witnessed  a spirited game won by the 5th XI but the result was not important; the event was the icing on the cake.  If Saturday was anything to go by the facility can only enhance the status of this great club and we can now move forward and look forward to regular cricket, both senior and colts at Loring Hall.

Thanks to all those involved and to Sarah Bleksley and her gang for providing a typical Bexley Tea.

Bexley Cricket Club has been in existence for over 200 years - records exist before that but the Club celebrated it's official bicentennial year in 2005. The present ground in Manor Way has been in use by the club since 1866. It is a perfect setting for cricket and the socialising that goes with it. 

The Club 1st XI is currently one of the 10 KCL Premier League sides in Kent. The 2nd XI play in the Kent 2nd XI Premier League and were 2015 Champions. Bexley players past and present have played at both County and International Level including Min Patel, Adam Ball and Adam Riley. 

The Club runs six league sides on Saturdays and has this season been fielding eight Saturday sides regularly, the Red Caps and The Wayfarers playing friendly fixtures.  There are normally two sides on Sundays, competing in cup and league competitions. Cricket Week in July is a festival of cricket and socialising, generally recognised to be one of the best in South East England. 

The Club has an established Colts section for both boys and girls catering for ages from 9 to 18 years.  The section has been a major contributor of Playing and Non Playing members for the main Club and is an integral part of the Club and its structure. An established Kent Tour, run in August also provides development opportunities for younger players. 

The Colts teams play in the North Kent Junior League and enter National competitions at U13 and U15 level.  The U19 Bexley Rangers are the current ECB U19 T20 National Champions winning the title at Grace Road in September 2014 and were the Kent County Champions in 2015.  New for this season was the introduction of the All Stars with up to  60 younger children taking part in cricket activities at the Club on a Friday evening.

Bexley CC - Introduce the Wayfarers

In what is already a promising looking start to the season, this Saturday the Club is fielding 8 teams on Saturday. The Red Caps (7th XI) are now joined by the Bexley Wayfarers. I can't remember when the former Wayfarers ceased to be but through the hard work and efforts of the Cricket Committee and the commitment of our playing members along with the young colts champing at the bit to play senior cricket, we have done it.....8 teams (with a few to spare). Despite the best efforts of the Cricket Committee it is too late to be entered into league cricket this season but next year, if the trend continues, the 7th XI Red Caps could certainly be playing in the Kent Regional League. 

None of this is easy and already selection for the teams, certainly at the lower end, is challenging for the selectors. But it will give the opportunity for more playing members to play cricket and introduce our younger colts to the senior game and all that goes with it.
We wish the Wayfarers all the best for Saturday against Beckenham 4th XI!!
See you all at the Club Saturday evening.
