Bluntisham Cricket Club Timeline

IMG_1017.jpg

The first signs Bluntisham had become a cricketing village was way back in 1849 when then, combined with Earith, a contest between the married and single men of the village took place.

 

Here is a scorecard from a season after in 1850 where the married XI defeated the defending champions, the singles, by 5 runs.

2018 Season

The 2018 season was one of great success for Bluntisham CC both on and off the field. Firstly, we had a brand new net facility installed which former England Ladies captain Charlotte Edwards officially opened (click image below for more pictures). On the field, wearing a brand new kit and club badge, Blunty went on to win three titles. The 1st and 2nd team Saturday league titles and Midweek league title. They also reached the Junior Cup final and the Midweek Cup semi-finals but unfortunately fell short on both occasions. This didn't tarnish what was the club's most successful ever season.

On Monday the 6th of May 2019, Bluntisham Cricket Club hosted it's first ever fixture involving an international team as Netherlands Women took on Cambridgeshire Women in the Women's Royal London One-Day Cup (County Championship). The Netherlands ran out comfortable winners by 8 wickets in front of a circa-75 strong crowd.
