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

2019 was a successful year for the club, and the squad as a whole has gone from strength to strength.

The club has hugely improved its facilities in recent years, and now enjoys the benefits of 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!
