Welcome to Lordswood Cricket Club

Formed back in 1966 we eagerly look forward to celebrating our Golden Anniversary later this year. From early beginnings as a wandering side we have evolved into the Medway Towns most successful club. With facilities that are the envy of most and are praised by our visitors we are proud to call Martin Grove our home. Hewn from the chalk,clay and flint of Lords Wood on the top of the North Downs by our now president ,Peter Edmonds and Vice-President, Colin Gardener and their band of dedicated men and women our club has grown into a Kent Premier League club. We run 4 teams on a Saturday and one on a Sunday.
We also have a strong Junior section which is currently home to the recently elected Kent Cricket Coach of the Year, Joe Joseph. We believe strongly that if you are good enough,you are old enough. To further augment this policy we have appointed highly respected ex county professional cricket Chris Dale to our coaching team for the coming season. Juniors sides are selected at Under 11,13,15,16 and 17 years of age.We also welcome children who are new to our beloved game and are keen to learn more.
We have identified that despite its population and proximity of many clubs there is no specific cricket set up for girls in the Medway area. We hope to rectify this very soon.
We welcome players,officials and supporters of all ages,abilities,race and gender to join us at what we believe are exciting time for our family here at Lordswood CC. Please contact us via lordswoodcricket@yahoo.co.uk - we look forward to welcoming you.
