We're a Wiltshire village cricket club, dating back to before the First World War, playing over 20 Sunday games of cricket each season around Wiltshire and Berkshire. In addition, a Twenty20 competition called the Munim Tournament was introduced in 2009 and we began a September Tour to Devon and Cornwall in 2008 known as "Boars on Tour" after our sponsor the Blue Boar.
On our website you will find our recent results, playing averages and match reports for games since 2008, some of which are not for those of a sensitive disposition! There is also a library of occasional Breaking News stories few of which have any grip on reality.
Our home ground was given over to the village football club in the late 60’s when the cricket club folded due to dwindling interest. Despite our rekindled enthusiasm for the game since 1997 we have not yet managed to garner enough to develop a new pitch – but watch this space! As a result we depend on playing most of our games away although, we are occasionally able to host some games at Marlborough College and Ramsbury thanks to their generosity.
No village cricket web site is complete without the much used phrase "we are always looking for new fixtures", but we really do mean it and we're easy to get hold of (see our contacts section for more details).
As important is the quest for new players to add to our pool. Whilst Zimmer frames and push chairs are not encouraged we really would welcome interest from young gun teenagers to those approaching the twilight of their careers.
