Welcome to the Clifton Cricket Club website

The subject of much debate on it's inception, the club felt from the start that the ball stop fence was too small, but the council didn't agree. "How long is it since a Clifton player hit a six?" joked (?) one councillor. Five years and several incidents including a very expensive court appearance later, we know the answer.

The new changing room includes facilities for disabled cricketers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The club house has evolved over the years and has come a long way since the first brick building in 1970.

'Awards for All' provided a grant for covers early into the new millenium. They have since proved worth their weight in gold.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three all weather coaching lanes opened in 2000.

Maybe not ALL weather though !

The fourth (or is it fifth) set of dressing rooms were opened in 2000 following a grant from Sport England. The old games room (now part of the Kingfisher Room) was used as changing rooms for one season in the seventies, so strictly speaking it's five !! At the end of the 2003 season, it was decided that an additional grass strip would be of much greater benefit than the all weather strip on the square, especially now that the club had three off-field strips. Removal of the strip took place on September 23rd 2003.

Our lovely ladies were invited to join in at Milnrow's ladies day on June 25th 2006. Not only did they outshine their counterparts, but we won the match as well !!
