Kempsford Cricket Club

Club History

The year that Kempsford cricket club was first formed is not known. However we do know that the club was in existance in 1879 as we have a cricket bat given to a G.Bathe for the best bowling for the club in that season. Through the years the club has disbanded at least once and has played it's home games at 4 different locations

  1. The current location (in the grounds of Kempsford Manor - behind the George)
  2. Near the Axe and Compass at the west end of the village.
  3. Behind the social club at Welford.
  4. In the grounds of Coln House school at Fairford.
