Thrumpton Cricket Club was originally thought to have been founded in 1867 but following some recent diving through the achieve records, we have now traced a fixture list from the 1861 season.
This all now means the club is starting its 154th Season of cricket having started when bowling would either have been round arm or even possibly underarm, with overarm bowling not allowed until 1864.
The club itself runs 3 senior Saturday sides in the South Nottinghamshire Cricket League with the first team plating in Division C.
We also have a large junior set up comprising of Under 17, Under 15, Under 13 and KWIK Cricket teams taking part in the Leicestershire and Rutland Youth Cricket League and Cup competitions.
We also have a Senior Friendly XI that plays game on Sundays with a few midweek touring and friendly fixtures.
Originally the club played its games at ‘Twentylands’ on Church Lane at the top of the village but this ground became unavailable at the end of the 1967 season but luckily the club President, GF Seymour kindly offered playing facilities in the parkland grounds surrounding Thrumpton Hall.
Thrumpton CC then began the 1968 season playing at ‘The Park’ where the club still remain to this day. In 1998 the old ‘shed’ wooden pavilion was replaced by a new modern brick building thanks to the hard work of the committee and also a Sport England grant.
After introducing a 3rd XI in the 00’s we needed to find a stable ground for them and after playing at Clifton, Sutton Bonington and The Becket School we were finally able to give them a more secure home by moving them to East Leake.
2014 saw the club achieve ECB Club mark accreditation; something we hope will keep the club moving forward.
