The Women’s team goes from strength to strength, but our men’s sides have found it difficult to select consistent teams. Our current league positions reflect this lack of consistency but we have a long season to look forward to and are still in a good number of cup competitions.

Our First XI and Women’s sides both played away at Denby in Derbyshire. The Women were first to secure their place in the Super Eights competition and then joined loyal club supporters to cheer on the First XI as they gained a place in National Club Knockout regional finals.

It was great to have newly appointed Captain of the Northants CCC one-day side, Josh Cobb, playing alongside the newly arrived PJ van Biljon our South African overseas player but it was youngster Hamish Merriman who stole the show with a quick-fire 55 off 36 balls.

Our junior section continues to thrive with sides at Kwik (8-11); Incrediball (under 11); U11; U13; U15 & U19 playing competitive cricket. In addition, we have coaching for younger ones through the All Stars program. We welcome new cricketers of all ages so please pop along to the club on either Friday nights or Sunday mornings.

For those who would rather watch, there is a regular league program on Saturdays with two teams playing at home and most weekends there will be cup or friendly cricket to watch. In addition, we are hosting a number of high profile games including:

  1. British University Finals Wednesday Thursday 26/27 June
  2. ECB County U17 Final Sunday 7 July
  3. Leicestershire 2nd XI Monday to Wednesday 12-14 August
  4. ECB County U15 Finals Wednesday and Thursday 21/22 August
  5. ECB County 50+ Final Sunday 8 September.

For those who would rather sit in the sun and enjoy a relaxing drink, there is also a place for you at KCC. We welcome social members to our family friendly club, just pop along between Friday night and Sunday, enjoy a drink, or just see what we have to offer.
