Badgers Cricket Club – Home Page

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, for several years to Cheshire and more recently we have wandered in our touring too, taking in visits to Cheltenham, Taunton, Canterbury, Worcester and Milton Keynes). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.

The site continues to grow in scope, despite having made its first appearance twenty-four years ago in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, summary scorecards, detailed scorecards, match reports and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at (going all the way back to the club’s inaugural season in 1959), the Badgers ‘Honours Board’, a list of the current club officers and links to our social media ‘presence’.



What’s New

25 May 2024

A return visit to Warlingham, who we played for the first time in many years last September and who we are slated to revisit in the same slot this year, saw Badgers record a second win of the season on a sunny afternoon (no need for my umpiring blouson for the second week running). The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

PLEASE NOTE that the scheduled trip to Dormansland this coming Sunday has been cancelled, due to ground preparation issues, and we will instead be returning to Warlingham who we are also slated to play again in September. The fixtures page has been updated accordingly and the Google Map with opponent locations already has a map marker for the club which I have moved to the top of the list for now.

The new season finally got underway with our annual trek to the northerly climes of Ham Common, where the weather was, thankfully contrary to recent weeks, unexpectedly warm and sunny. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

Whilst almost all of it is automated these days the start of the new season brings a large number of changes to this site, most of them in the plumbing behind the scenes, and paradoxically that probably means that things do not get checked as thoroughly as they might in the past. Therefore if I have missed a mistake or other discrepancy that you spot, please shout.

5 May 2024

PLEASE NOTE that today’s match at Long Ditton was called off on Thursday due to the wet weather and since we have been unable to find a replacement fixture at short notice we have been left without a game again this week.

The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the drop down menus at the top of the page (under Badgers’ Burrow).
