In 1962 the Western Counties Cricket competition was an idea which was materialized by four Charter Clubs comprising of:
1. Warwick Workmen’s Club 2. Southampton Rangers Sports Club 3. Somerset Bridge Recreation Club 4. Willow Cuts Cricket Club
The first competition was contested in 1963 and the Willow Cuts Cricket Club was the first champion winning the Warren Simmons Cup which was to be played for on an annual basis.
Initially, all matches were played on Thursdays at the Champions Club home ground. These matches became an annual event and grew into not only a sporting event but created a community atmosphere with food stalls and other recreational activities.
We encourage the community to come out and join us in cheering on their favourite Western Counties Cricket Association team.
