Little Bardfield Cricket Club

Little Bardfield Village Cricket Club is a small club with a huge heart!  Whilst there are records showing cricket fixtures having been played in Little Bardfield in the mid 1800's, 2019 marks 100 anniversary of LBVCC being formally constituted a cricket club in 1919.

The home pitch was originally behind what is now known as The Styles.  In the early 1900’s it moved into the front grounds of Little Bardfield Hall.  It moved again to its current ground in the 1960’s after a local landowner, Hugh Craig, gifted the field to Essex County Cricket Club on the condition that it was leased to LBVCC on a peppercorn rent for 125 years.  If the Club were to cease, then ECCC would become the beneficiary of the land area.

The 1st XI play in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Division Two, competing across Essex and Suffolk. The Sunday XI play a combination of local friendlies and Twenty 20 league cricket.

There are many exciting events planned over the centenary year and to mark the occasion a flagship cricket week will be taking place between Sunday 28th July to Saturday 3rd August.


The Club’s emblem is the Bardfield Oxlip
