Welcome to Hitchin Cricket Club


Hitchin Cricket Club is one of the oldest cricket clubs in Hertfordshire - being formed in 1866 and have played at Lucas Lane since 1947.

We are a club which enjoys a strong, vibrant and enthusiastic club spirit and provides cricket facilities for all abilities and ages. 

Members come from the town of Hitchin, surrounding towns and villages in North Herts and even from neighbouring counties.

We are one of Hertfordshire's most established senior clubs and celebrated our 150th Anniversary in 2016. We have 2 lovely cricket grounds with fantastic views across the countryside. We run 4 Mens' sides on Saturday's in the Saracens Hertfordshire League, together with a Ladies team, a further mens and junior development team on Sundays and also have a set of Mens T20 midweek fixtures.

We also run a brilliant junior section that caters for school years 3 and upwards to year 11 and a great bunch of ECB qualified and dedicated coaches. We had over 110 junior fixtures for boys and girls in 2017.

Roll on for exciting times at Hitchin CC in 2018 with the new clubhouse and sports facilities construction plans being well progressed. See details below.

We are proud to be an ECB Clubmark accredited club and a Hertfordshire County Cricket Association Focus Club.

We also play in the Hertfordshire Junior Leagues.

For more information on any club matters, please contact our Chairman, Ian Mills on 07540 304331 or via e-mail on millsian.97@gmail.com

THE FUTURE - Exciting Plans for our New Clubhouse, Ground and Astro Pitch facilities - 

We are delighted to inform you that on February 1st 2018, the Directors completed the legal process regarding the club redevelopment. 

We handed the site over to our contractor, Morgan Sindall and they have now completed the demolition phase and well underway with foundations and erected the steel framework of the new buildings. The welfare units for the Transition Season have been installed in the car park. 

The area to be developed will be enclosed and completely off limits to all members of the clubs and the public alike. 

If you need, for any reason, to access the development site please contact the site manager, Tom Martin. (Thomas.martin@morgansindall.co.uk  07811 819517). 
As with all construction projects health and safety is the number one concern.

We have access to our cricket pitches through the summer and the Cricket Club will work out our matchday logistics in due course. Please be understanding this summer and look forward to the following season.
 
The overall plan sees the four components of the build completing in Dec 2018, these are:
  • The new combined scoreboard, equipment store, and changing building sited between the two cricket grounds
  • The new 3 lane bay cricket nets
  • The new artificial hockey pitch & floodlights
  • The new clubhouse
 It is also planned to relay both cricket squares over the next two autumns with improvements to the top outfield also planned. 

Your support for this exciting scheme to safeguard the provision of sports facilities at Lucas Lane is essential. Further progress details of this exciting development are communicated to all our members in the Weekly Newsletters & this website.
