Trent Bridge Cricket Team

Trent Bridge Cricket Team was formed in 1996 by Tom Paterson, with the squad made up from the non-professional staff and associates of Trent Bridge - except for special occasions.
We have continued to grow each year with the number of fixtures now exceeding 20 each season.
In 1998 the first tour was held, and its success ensured it has become an annual event, with 2008 the first overseas tour (to Mallorca).
In 2003 we took on a new challenge by joining the Nottingham Evening Cricket League, adding a competitive touch to matches while still playing with a smile on our faces.
2009 brought our first league silverware in the form of the 2nd Division title, winning seven out of eight matches while in 2010 we reached the Final of the cup competition. In 2013 we won the 1st Division title against a host of teams who play regular Saturday league cricket.
The 2004 season included a game against a Paul Johnson 'Nottinghamshire' XI during his testimonial year, with Trent Bridge Cricket Team players on the day including former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams and Australian internationals David Hussey making their debuts.
This was followed in 2005 with a charity match against the world famous Bunbury Cricket Club, raising more than £4,000 for the ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ and Murali’s Tsunami ‘MVGF’ charities.
On our website you will find a mixture of information - from the latest news, fixtures, player profiles to averages, tour information, sponsors, our charity, team shop and our photo gallery plus much more.
We have been fortunate to have been sponsored since 2002, and we are indebted to THE SOUTHBANK BAR, part of the Great Northern Inn chain for their support. We would also like to thanks 4550 MILES FROM DELHI for their additional support.
If you are keen to become part of the team in any capacity: player, helper, umpire, sponsor amongst others then please get in contact, we are always on the lookout for new partners.
2014 promises to be another exciting season as we look to retain our league title whilst progress further in the midweek cup. This season culminates with an end of season charity match (please keep a lookout for future information - we are also looking to source a match sponsor).
2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the team and this will be celebrated with a number of events throughout the season.
Thanks for reading our story so far.
