Siddington Cricket Club were re-formed in 2017 after laying dormant for around 50 years. Earliest written reference to the club was from the Wilts & Glos Stardard in 1857 when Siddington CC played Cirencester 2nd XI. Games were played on the Siddington recreation ground for the next 100 years before the club folded in the late 1950’s, many of the older residents remember the club in their previous existence.
Today Siddington CC are a mix of villages and residents of the surrounding area who play predominantly for the enjoyment of the game. Most matches take place mid week evening and some Sundays against other village teams throughout the Cotswolds. We ensure everyone gets involved either batting or bowling, hopefully both. Siddington CC is all inclusive with everyone welcomed what ever their ability, age or gender.
At present we play our home games at Ampney Crucis, four miles from Siddington, while we are actively looking for a field to establish a wicket so that we can return cricket to the Parish.
Should anyone wish to play, support or find out more information please contact Jon Hughes 07947-805819 or firstname.lastname@example.org
