BETTESHANGER COLLIERY WELFARE CRICKET CLUB

Founded in 1936 by miners and their families from Betteshanger Colliery and the surrounding area.

 

Playing mainly friendly games against local sides in the area before joining leagues in the late 1980’s where we enjoyed considerable success. With the amalgamation of the leagues into the Kent Regional League structure we progressed through the divisions before being promoted to the Kent League in 2009. In 2019 we were relegated back into the Kent Regional League.

 

We are looking to rebuild the playing side of the club which currently has two Saturday league men’s teams and a men’s friendly Sunday team. We are always looking for new recruits and believe we have the facilities to help anyone get into, or back into playing cricket. We run junior practice sessions for both boys and girls of all ages through the season and again all are welcome.

Our constitution states the aims of our club. 

  • To encourage the playing of the game of cricket through the provision of practice and playing facilities, coaching and fixtures for all playing members of all ages

  • To afford all members such benefits and privileges as it may be possible to arrange.

  • To ensure all members, playing and non-playing, conform to the Laws of the game and Codes of Conduct.

  • To encourage members of all categories to participate in the life of the Club through playing, social and fund‑raising activities and general management

  • To provide coaching and training in cricket for playing Members of all ages

  • To promote the Club within the local community and within the Cricketing community

  • To manage the Club's ground and facilities

  • To ensure a duty of care to all Members of the Club

  • To provide all its services in a way that is fair to everyone
