Introduction and History
Club records suggest that Worlington CC was formed in 1814.
Since that period, the Club evolved as a village team playing friendly matches against neighbouring villages around West Suffolk and East Cambridgeshire.
The Club runs three league teams that play cricket on Saturdays in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Cricket League, a Sunday Academy team the plays in the Hunts County Bats League. We also enter mid-week cup competitions throughout the season and also participate in the National Village cup competition on a Sunday.
A junior section was re-established in 2009 to develop cricket amongst the children and young people of the village and surrounding area. This has since grown and flourished to over 83 junior members. We now run weekly summer coaching sessions for Under 7s, Under 9s, Under 11s, Under 13’s and Under 15s age groups, with all age groups entering into league competitions against other side’s in West Suffolk. We also compete in county cup competitions and local tournaments through the season. In 2018 we entered the Suffolk Under 19 competition for the first time.
In 2019 the club introduced a Ladies team which train weekly and play the occasional friendly game.
In 2011 the club extended and renovated its pavilion to modern day standards. We have since installed a new electronic scoreboard in 2013 and installed a new 2 lane net facility and replaced a non turf pitch in 2019 and bought new ground equipment over the last few years.
To create a thriving cricket club that promotes the best interests of the game to all levels and sections of the community in and around the village of Worlington.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for playing cricket, facilitate cricket development and make the club an inclusive social environment that welcomes playing and non-playing members alike.
