Welcome to Edenbridge Cricket Club

 

We are a friendly cricket club in the Garden of England on the border with Surrey and Sussex.  We run two Saturday teams  in the Sussex Cricket League (the largest cricket league in the world), a T20 midweek team and a Sunday Academy XI.

 

We are ECB Clubmark accredited and have an ever growing junior section.  We run U9, U11, U13 and U15 teams - as well as the popular All-Stars programme for 5-8 years olds to introduce them to cricket.

 

We are always on the lookout for new members of all abilities; men and women, boys and girls.  You can contact us using the form on this website.

 

Please do enjoy our website and we hope to see you at Blossoms Park soon.

The Matthew Cox Community Pavilion

The Matthew Cox Community Pavilion




Matthew Cox was sadly taken from us at the age of 21 in August 2015. His sudden death prompted many touching messages through social media, relating not only to his sporting activities but also him as a person. 

Matthew lived for his weekend & his cricket. He began his cricketing career as a junior at Edenbridge. During his time at Sackville School in East Grinstead he captained the cricket team as well as playing junior county cricket. Through the East Grinstead Academy and Sussex CCC he travelled to Cape Town and to Dubai to play junior cricket, as well as continuing his career at Edenbridge where he quickly graduated to the First XI. He was about to start his final year at Reading University where he also played for the University cricket club.  A hugely talented cricketer, he was sadly lost to us before he even moved into his prime, but he will always be remembered for ripping out stumps with his bowling & for smashing the ball through mid-wicket with his favourite shot.

In Matthew’s memory we have raised over £350,000 - through numerous fundraising events, donations and grants – to build the new Matthew Cox Community Pavilion and to create a genuine community facility in his name.   We thank everyone who has organised fund raising events such as the Red Tie Ball,  5-a-side football, golf days and curry nights  and to everyone who has raised funds for the Pavilion through running marathons, half-marathons, and Tough Mudder.  

 Work started on the new Pavilion in September 2018 and has been making good progress. It is due to be completed by the start of the 2019 season. Follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up to date with progress.  And we now have a date set for our opening event.

We still need to raise funds for the project – to repay loan funding and for fit-out costs. If you would like to support us, then you can donate here through Just Giving.
