The Milburys Cricket Club
The countdown to the summer is on!
Happy New Year to everybody from the Milburys Cricket Club! Hopefully you are looking forward to the 2013 season as much as we are. We have our usual mixture of fixtures - many against old friends but some new - so please feel free to get involved either as player or spectator. We are always on the lookout for fresh opposition so please contact us if you are a team looking for a friendly match.
Apologies to all for not updating the website but all the latest news will be on-line very shortly!
The Milburys Cricket Club (formally known as the Brigadier Gerard Cricket Club) was born in 2005 out of a passion for cricket, great English summers and mates enjoying a pre, during and post match beer. We are a pub side made up of enthusiastic cricketers from around Winchester and Southampton who play friendly matches throughout the summer.
For us, the emphasis is very much on enjoying the game, not taking things too seriously and enjoying a pint in the pub afterwards. Our aim of course is to play a good standard of cricket against our like minded opponents, but most of all it’s about having a laugh and convincing ourselves that we are keeping fit!
Normally we play on Sundays but we also play the occasional mid-week game and are always on the look out for new players and new teams to play against. If you fancy a game then please get in touch
The club is entirely self financed, raising money through annual subscriptions, fund-raising events, fines and our monthly 26 Club draw. If you don't already have a card in the draw then please consider signing up. It only costs £5 per month to enter and there are cash prizes to be won!
We enjoy tremendous support from The Milburys which is a fine old English pub, serving a wide range of local ales and some excellent food. It also boasts a skittles alley, a 300ft well, a roaring fire and a landlord who appreciates his cricket team, no matter how often they lose! There's nowhere better to be on a hot summers day after a game of cricket.
Our home ground is called The Holt and it is a beautiful pitch set in the countryside near Winchester which we share with our sister club The Flamingos. We have been associated with the Flamingos since 2010 and are very lucky to have found such a wonderful place to play our cricket.
The Holt sits on the top of a wooded hill right on the edge of the Meon Valley and won Hampshire Cricket League's “Ground of the Year” award in 1998.
If you are interested in playing for us or would like to try and organise a fixture then please get in touch, otherwise please enjoy the site.
