Badgers Cricket Club
Affiliated to the CCC
A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering
cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of
Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the
Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset and more recently to Cheshire).
For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the
The site has continued to grow since it first appeared in March 2000, and in
addition to up-to-the-minute
results, scorecards, match reports,
news and fixtures, you will also
find more statistical information than you could
shake a stick at, the Badgers ‘hall of fame’, a list of
the current club officers, a sadly rather stagnant
photo gallery and links to general cricket sites and
many of the clubs that we play, or have played, against.

The annual presentation dinner took place last night (yes, I really am
posting an update the day after the event)!?
Details of who won what can be found on the
news page, along with a brief
report of proceedings, and the Hall Of Fame Trophy winners page has been updated accordingly.
Things will go quiet for a little while now but I am well on the way to
being able to provide full best performances information for
all seasons prior to 1984, having already entered the first dozen or so
seasons, the first fruits of which are already visible on some
personal pages, most notably, for
now, our esteemed chairman
and the legendary Brian Moore.
Once the process is complete then you can expect to see both individual
pages for each season, as we already have for seasons from 1985 on, and an
overall best performances ever page in the hall of fame.
Whilst on the subject of personal pages I omitted to mention with the last update that both
Alec Cochrane and
Pete Snook played often enough in 2016
(and over the previous four seasons) to end up so endowed but Daniel Ward
has lost his since he no longer meets the qualification criteria.
Whilst on the subject of omissions I should also mention that I failed to
pick up on an unusual element of the second Tadworth game, which I have rectified in the
revised match report.
Not sure exactly when the next update will be – I am currently
managing to add best performance details at a rate of one per day, but the
number of games played increases somewhat from the mid-1970s onwards
– but hopefully something useful will appear before Christmas. More
likely, given my track record, is an apologetic update just before (or
just after) the AGM, but let’s hope that for once I can offer a
little more than my existing reputation suggests.

Cross-checking of the data is now complete – Darrell and I have even
taken the time to check against the paper scorebook entries, and correct
some of them, so my thanks to him for sharing that chore – so for
the first time ever I am now in the position to bring you the full
season report in advance of the dinner and
the distribution of awards off the back of the averages contained therein.
All of the other pages have been updated with the 2016 figures, including
all decade by decade averages pages, the
personal pages and the
individual records page.
In addition those efforts mean that you can now find
historical results for 2016 along with the
For the record the changes made as a result of the checking can be found on the
Statistical Sett page.
Not sure what the next updates will be, although there will almost
certainly be one at some time after the dinner documenting the awards made
on the night and I have started work on both entering 1984 into
Play-Cricket and building up a database of historical best performances,
so either (or both) of those might come to friution before the AGM

The final game of the year at Westcott was blessed with some lovely
weather, the odd short rain shower notwithstanding, and a DIY tea.
The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the
results page along with
a statistical notes only
and the pertinent elements from the
After some discussion with various other club officers I have decided to
forego the habit of a lifetime and publish the full season statistics as
soon as they are ready this year (so no partial season report with the
batting, bowling and catching missing). Primary driver for this, since it
doesn’t really cost me a great deal of extra time, is that everyone
can see the numbers for themselves on Play-Cricket and it no longer makes
sense to pretend otherwise. I may also give up on producing the paper
season report (including the PDF version) because that does cost me a lot
of time and effort, so if you are particularly attached to that approach
then you’d better let me know.
Therefore the next update should appear in the next couple of weeks, once
I’ve had a chance to cross-check all of the data and roll the whole
site over to its post season state.
The older What’s New entries are
now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you
