Who we are and what we do
The club itself has been in continuous
operation since its foundation in 1948. Our ground, ‘The Ridge’,
has been occupied by us for the past sixty years and, we are
confident, retains the best view for many miles around. Indeed it
is a wonderful spot not only for watching cricket, but also for
gazing over the some forty miles to the two Clees in
Worcestershire. Indeed, it is a much prized spot to those who know
how to find us.
The Club itself runs a programme of cricket
currently encompassing two Saturday teams, based in the
Staffordshire Club Cricket Championship, along with regular
friendly Sunday fixtures where we operate two teams whenever
possible. In the recent past, midweek cricket has been played in a
small Wolverhampton area league which has since sadly folded.
We are, however, eagerly looking forward to
its reinstatement. A youth team has been in operation at various
intervals, subject to enough youngsters wanting to play. The youth
team is currently inactive as its previous players have grown into
invaluable members of our league teams.
We are open to all comers who wish to
participate, and mainly focus upon reintroducing to the sport those
who have not played for some time, as well as introducing
first-timers to the sport with a welcoming and friendly attitude as
well as plenty of support from well established players.
We have a wide participation base,
currently encompassing an age range of 13 - 63 (which is guaranteed
to increase every year the current chairman continues to play!), a
wide mix of ethnic groups including Irish, Bangladeshi,
Afro-Caribbean and many others, as well as many female members.
Unfortunately we have no female players at present, though we are
hopeful this will change in the future. It may be noted that the
club also encourages participation by the disabled.
Anybody interested in becoming a member
should contact us on the details below. Indeed, any participation
is welcomed, and there are many other important roles other than on
the pitch - for instance, the current Secretary of the club has not
played in years! For those interested in playing however, do feel
free to come down on a Thursday evening in the summer to one of our
open-air net sessions, subject to weather, where our lads are
Alternately match days are a great time to
come down and get a feel for the place and the sport, so do come
and watch. In the winter months we run an indoor nets programme
often running January to March at the Wolverhampton Grammar School.
Once again, do feel free to come down.
