About Sandy Cricket Club

Sandy CC has a proud history of playing cricket in East Bedfordshire dating back many decades with our most successful period being the late sixties and early seventies when we featured in some of the most famous cup finals of the generation. During that period, The Millman Cup, Hospital Cup and East Beds Shield were all won with a much renowned and revered side under the captaincy of Richard Banks and Ted Smith based at "The Rec" on Bedford Road. In current times, Sandy are fortunate to boast the best pitches for miles around at our Sunderland Road ground, (accessed via Engayne Avenue) and 2009 saw the introduction of a brand new purpose built pavillion, changing facilities and an electronic scoreboard.

In 2009, Sandy was playing Saturday cricket in the Millman Trophy Division 1 (the top division) and Sunday cricket in the Bedfordshire County League Division Four. In 2010 and 2011, the club fielded a Development team on Saturdays and played fixtures outside of the Millman Competitions. For the 2012 Season, our Saturday XI played competitively once more, having joined the Bedfordshire Invitation Saturday League in Division 3 and gained promotion to Division 2 for 2013 and has continued to play in this Division since then. The Sunday XI continues in the County League Division 4, from which we are always keen to secure promotion.

Within our club, we have a major focus on youth development and previously, we have had teams competing at U 10, U 12 and U 14 level of the Bedfordshire Youth League. In the 2016 Season, we wil not be fielding youth teams in the leagues but hope to do so again in future years. During the winter months, Sandy has participated in the Bedfordshire Indoor League Division Two.
