Guildford CC is one of the largest, most successful cricket clubs in Surrey. We are founder members of the Surrey Championship League and our 1st XI play in the Premier Division.
On a Saturday we field five men's Xls whilst on a Sunday we field an Academy (U-21) and Development (U-18) team in the Surrey Trust League. Our Women's 1st XI play in the Championship Division of the Women's Southern League. We also run a vast programme of junior cricket, ages 7-17.
Members will be sad to learn that Jim Gilchrist passed away peacefully at home on 17th January 2017. He was 79.
Jim was Chairman of Guildford Cricket Club throughout the 1990s and was instrumental in modernising the Club. He led the Club’s involvement in the Guildford Cricket Week for many years. Both he and his wife Delia were elected Life Members of Guildford Cricket Club.
Jim’s funeral is on Tuesday 7th February at 2.15 pm at Guildford Crematorium. It will be attended by many from his huge circle of friends and Guildford Cricket Club will be well represented.
Guildford Cricket Club supports and endorses a policy of respect for opposition players, officials and team-mates.
We encourage competitive cricket played in the right spirit and encourage all our members, of whatever age, to enjoy the game and the Club’s facilities.
Many congratulations to Will for winning the Sir Jack Hobbs Fair Play Award for 2016. This highly prestigious award was made at The Master’s Club annual lunch at the Kia Oval on 16th December. The lunch is held on the date of Sir Jack Hobbs’ birthday in his memory.
The presentation was made to Will’s parents, as he was away in Dubai at the England Young Lions training camp.
Further great news is that along with Ollie Pope, Will has been selected for the England U-19 tour to India. The squad will travel to Mumbai in late January and play five one-day internationals, followed by two four-day matches in Chennai.
