News & Events
In 2005 the amalgamation of two clubs - Knowle & Dorridge CC and Arden Forest CC was completed to enable the club to utilise more fully the facilities at its second ground at Lugtrout Lane.
The thriving Junior section has a full programme during the season and there is activity for at least one of the age groups on every night of the week. At the moment we are proud to claim that one of our junior members represented England Under 15’s in 2004! For further details of a full programme of practice nights and matches, see the JUNIORS page.
The Club Colours are Green and Gold and the club emblem is the Bear and Ragged Staff.
The club is situated between the ‘villages’ of Knowle and Dorridge on Station Road, Dorridge, Solihull, West Midlands, and the second ground is situated on Lugtrout Lane, Solihull.
Apart from its playing strength and cricket tradition, Knowle and Dorridge CC boasts a strong social membership.
