Cowdrey Cricket Club, Tonbridge

Cowdrey Cricket Club is the leading cricket club in Tonbridge, with both 1st and 2nd XIs playing in Division 3 of the Kent League and the 3rd XI playing in Divison 5 of the Kent Regional League. Formerly Tonbridge Printers CC, we play at the Swanmead Sports Ground in Tonbridge, Kent. We are proud to be both an ECB Clubmark and Focus club and work hard to make cricket available to everyone. 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 Sunday XI. Our Sunday friendly calendar is full and varied, with games at some of the nicest cricket clubs in Kent and Sussex.

2021 Adults Review

2021 brought the return of the Kent Cricket League season. Our 1st XI was once again skippered by Jack Mutch who comfortably secured a top half finish. 2021 also marked the return of Sri Lankan overseas Minhaj Jalill, who led the 1st XI batting with 645 league runs (43.00). Jake McGroarty and Stuart Clarke also contributed with the bat with 304 runs at 23.38 and 283 runs at 23.58 respectively. Wickets were shared among Nick Farr (20), Ralph Yeats-Brown (17), Minhaj Jalill (16) and Glen Warner (15). Jack Mutch took 16 wicket keeping dismissals, and Minhaj Jalill took the most fielding dismissals (9).

The 2nd XI was captained by Oscar Holmes from a few games in, following former skipper Glen Warner stepping down. The 2nd XI managed to conjure up one of the most memorable survival escapes in Kent League history. Being bottom of the division for 12 weeks, until the final match of the season. Winning by four runs and clinching 8th place. Highest run-scorers were Oscar Holmes with 380 runs averaging 38.00. Followed by Rob Fenwick with 237 at 26.33, and Miheer Singh with 219 at 27.38. Phil Sullivan shone with the ball, taking 27 wickets with an average of 10.33. Paimaan Mohammad also took 11 wickets at 20.73. Karl McArthur dismissed 16 batsmen behind the stumps, the second most in the division. While Oscar Holmes took the most fielding dismissals in the division with 12.

The 3rd XI took on a new challenge and entered the Kent Regional League, in Division 6 Central. Birendra Singh at the helm, Biru's army managed after a somewhat shaky start, to come Runners Up in the league, and be promoted to Div 5 for 2022. A fantastic result for Cowdrey's first competitive 3rd XI in years. Iain Lawrence topped the run-scorers with 226 runs with an average of 32.29. Vice-skipper Oliver Hardy-Smith with 205 at 17.08 and Birendra Singh with 149 at 21.29. Birendra Singh topped the wicket takers with 23 with an average of 10.26. Olly Trace not far behind with 18 wickets at 13.94, and Luke Hardy-Smith also chipping in with 12 wickets at 30.92. Oli Hardy-Smith took 10 wickets behind the stumps. We're looking forward to Birendra continuing his charge into Div 5 this year in 2022!

2020 Adults Review

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.

Junior Cricket In Tonbridge

Thanks largely to Gary Marshall, our Director of Coaching, Cowdrey is proud to boast a very healthy colts section. Off the back of a fantastic 2021 season our junior section is going from strength to strength. Over the winter a number of players and parents went on ECB coaching courses and helped run our 2021/2022 winter net sessions. We now have a brilliant squad of coaches who are passionate about getting more kids playing cricket. New players are always very welcome - boys & girls from 5-15. During the season, match and tournament selection policy emphasises promoting colts wherever possible. Thanks to our excellent ECB accredited coaching staff, this policy has begun to to pay dividends, and a large number of our Adult cricketers 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!
