Barford Cricket Club

Barford Cricket Club

A friendly cricket club based in Warwickshire


At Barford we are always looking for new players to reduce the team average age, hopefully, to below 140. At weekends, we play only friendly games against similar local teams and several league Sunday 2nd XI teams. In the meantime you are most welcome to take a look around this site and if you want to attend nets or come along to any game or social event then please feel free to get in touch with a committee member or e-mail us directly.

We are delighted to announce that for the forthcoming year our shirt sponsor will be the Joseph Arch pub in Barford, scene of many a pre- and post-match debrief let alone committee meeting. Many thanks to them for their generous sponsorship and we look forward to playing in our new shirts next year…

Anyone seeking guidance on the club ethos could do far worse
than read Marcus Berkmann’s hilarious take on village cricket in “Rain Men” and the follow-up “Zimmer Men”, which are uncannily close to real life. If you enjoy the books, you’ll love playing for Barford…

Close of Play

By now I’m sure you will have caught the minutes of the AGM as the final act of the outgoing Secretary. Having been press-ganged elected (surprisingly unopposed) into his shoes, it would be churlish not to comment on his tenure […]
