Cardiff Cricket Club

Cardiff CC is the oldest and remains one of the leading cricket clubs in South Wales. The Club runs four senior teams each Saturday and a midweek team which all play in the local leagues. There is a thriving junior section with teams at under 9, 11,13 and 15 with close links with local schools.The Club prides itself on its amateur status, excellent playing and training facilities and the fact that it is a family orientated club rooted in the local community.

The Club is delighted to have secured 4 trophies during the last seven days of the 2014 season; Welsh Cup, South Wales Premier League 1st and 2nd Division Championships and the Vale of Glamorgan Midweek T20 Cup. A brilliant end to a fabulous season. Well done to all involved.

Cardiff 1sts were playing current league leaders Bridgend Town in a must win game for Cardiff if they were to defend their league title. Even though Bridgend were put into bat they went on to score 304/5 with Sam Wood (95) enjoying an opening stand with Sam Pearce of 129. Cardiff old boy Ruaidhri Smith scored a quick 71 n.o. to help Bridgend to a formidable total. In response, Cardiff lost some early wickets and David Kirtley (hero of previous weeks) was retired hurt. Some late resistance from Steff Jones (48) only saw Cardiff reaching 182 all out. Cardiff will be looking to exact revenge in the T20 finals on July 19th.

Cardiff 2nds stretched their lead at the top of the 2nd Division with a 254 run victory over Bridgend 2nds. It looked as though it might be a different story when Cardiff were 106/4 in the 29th over, but captain Gwyn Hobbs (111 not out) and Mathew Preece (86 including 12 fours and 5 sixes in 43 balls) put on 133 runs for the 5th wicket to reach a total of 319. Bridgend capitulated to being all out for 64, thanks mainly to some fine bowling from debutant Will Mably (2-22), and the crafty spin of Tom Barry (3-15), Oliver Hughes (2-7). Though some of the shot selection from the Bridgend batsman was questionable at best given the situation.

Cardiff Cricket CLub has always had a very close relationship with Glamorgan Cricket Club. It was only 20 years ago when both clubs shared the same playing facilities at Sophia Gardens before it became the Swalec Stadium.

Cardiff Cricket Club currently have 3 players in the Glamorgan Academny: Prem Sisodiya, Mujahid Ilyas and Kiran Carlson who will be under the excellent tuition of the staff at Glamorgan to develop them as cricketers.

Each year the juniors of Cardiff Cricket CLub organise a "fun walk" from our Forest Farm cricket ground to the Swalec Stadium for a T20 international to support Glamoran as well as fundraise for the junior section directly.

Cardiff CC managed to overcome a spirited Merthyr CC in knockout Welsh Cup match. Man of the match was Basharat Malik who scored 79 n.o. in his first appearance for Cardiff CC this year. Cardiff CC 243/7 played Merthyr CC 178/9
