Bluntisham Cricket Club Timeline
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.

The Mick George Nets 2017/18
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.

The Netherlands ran out comfortable winners by 8 wickets in front of a circa-75 strong crowd.
