2020 Update

2020 was without doubt the most unusual year on record, however the season saw plenty of cricket, some inspiring performances and a lot of promise from our young players.

In the absence of Ryan Addison, vice captain Jack Mutch stepped up to lead the 1st XI to the inaugural title of the impromptu T&M Corona League, whilst veteran Glen Warner's 2s secured victory in their division with 2 games to spare. Strong numbers throughout the season meant that we were able to field a regular 3rd XI, which fared well and will return for 2021.

For the 1s, new opening combo Jake McGroarty and Xav Yeats-Brown shone with the bat, each averaging over 40. Wickets were shared between Thom Brown, Nick Farr and Liam McGroarty, with assistance from Ralph Yeats-Brown and Ben Mutch.

Having dropped down to skipper the 2nd XI, Glen Warner set the tone with 327 runs at 81.75, aided by some impressive performances from Miheer Singh and Scott Hall as well as a maiden ton from Rob Fenwick at Kings Hill. Paimaan Mohammed, Gary Marshall and Vineet Kakroo took 9 wickets apiece, closely followed by Gautam Juneja (8) and Phil Sullivan (6).

The 3rd XI was dominated in both disciplines by Ollie Marden, ably supported by the batting of skipper Birendra Singh, and Luke Hardy Smith with the ball.

It remains unclear what the future holds, but we will always do our best to provide cricket to all, safely and enjoyably. Information about winter cricket in 2020-21, as well as the 2021 season, will be posted on this website.

Recent history

In 2019, Cowdrey's 1st XI comfortably maintained their place in Kent League Division III. Captain Ryan Addison led the team through a year of mixed but generally very strong performances, finishing 4th. Meanwhile, the 2nd XI enjoyed a great success - achieving promotion after fighting hard to gain second place. Captain Phil Sullivan will finish on a high, stepping down for the 2020 season.

Cowdrey adopts a “whole-club” approach, each team supporting the other, and players regularly play for both sides during a season. Whenever possible, we put out a 3rd XI to play Saturday friendlies. Our Sunday friendly calendar is full and varied, with games at some of the nicest cricket clubs in Kent and Sussex.

Future plans

The club has enjoyed a decade of increasing success, and the squad as a whole has gone from strength to strength.

We've hugely improved our facilities in recent years, and now benefit from a successful bar and new covers. Last year, we completed an ambitious project to replace our nets with brand new, state-of the art training facilities.

We always welcome enquiries from new players, coaches and volunteers. We welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities, emphasising enjoyment and the togetherness that comes with being part of a great club.

Junior cricket in Tonbridge

Thanks largely to Gary Marshall, our Director of Coaching, Cowdrey is proud to boast a very healthy colts section. Up to 100 youngsters train every week night during the summer, with our young adults assisting with the training. Our selection policy emphasises promoting youngsters wherever possible. Thanks to our excellent ECB accredited coaching staff, this policy has begun to to pay dividends, and a large number of first- and second-team cricketers today started out as junior members of the club.

Cowdrey CC has achieved both ECB Clubmark and Focus Club recognition, a testament to our commitment towards encouraging and promoting the development of youngsters in our cricketing community. Whether you are a junior looking to play, a parent, or a more experienced player or coach wanting to join a new club, Cowdrey has a lot to offer!
