A BRIEF HISTORY OF SUDBROOK CRICKET CLUB

 

It is believed that Sudbrook cricket club was formed during the 1860s and although the early days are not chronicled it is a known fact that cricket was played at Blackrock in the 1870s.  It was at this ground that the legendary W G Grace played against Sudbrook for a Bristol team and having heard of the exploits of the great man he probable walked to the game across the Severn!  As the twentieth century approached the club moved into the heart of the village of Sudbrook establishing its headquarters at the camp until the construction of the paper mill in the late 1950s forced the club to look for a new ground

Several sites were considered before eventually moving to the bottom of the village on the sea front, but further development of the paper mill meant the club moving again and the playing fields at Caldicot became the only alternative.  This was followed by a move to the school grounds in the late 1960s where it remained until after years of fund raising the club amassed the £40.000 needed to build a clubhouse and lay a square and in 1983 moved to its current location at Mill Lane.

 

Although the club gained league status in the mid 1970s it was always held back by the fact it never owned its own ground with an adequate playing arena.  With that situation know resolved the club began to climb the cricket ladder in South Wales with first elevation to the Gwent premier league and then founder members of the Welsh Counties Cricket Alliance involving 12 teams picked from Gwent and Glamorgan.  With a now thriving youth section the club again looked at development and in 1997 with the help of lottery funding a double storey pavilion, clubhouse extension and the laying of a second square was completed. To compliment these facilities the club then had a four bay netting area installed. The following season the club won the Alliance league and as a result was invited to be one of the ten clubs in a premier league in South East Wales. Success on the field was followed in 2003 when Sudbrook became the ECB National 6-a-side indoor champions winning the final at Lords
