Aldbourne CC - History

Those who have read the Millennium Book of Aldbourne will know that Aldbourne Cricket Club dates back to before World War I. Until the 50’s the cricket ground was on West Street next to Woodley meadow but was relocated to the site of the current football field where the old pavilion once stood, now used by the football team, was built by mem­bers of the club. During the 60’s the club ran two teams and gained national prominence when Aldbourne became the first village club to play Sunday cricket.

Enthusiasm for cricket waned in the late 60’s and when the pitch could not cope with soccer in the winter and cricket during the summer, the cricket club folded.

The club was reborn in 1997 with a fixture list of six matches. It uses pitches at Marlborough College and Ramsbury as a home ground and held the first ‘tour match’ in memory to the village of Luckett in Cornwall in September 2008.
