Bradfield Cricket Club is situated in
the idyllic village of Bradfield, its roots dating back to the late 1800’s when
a group of farm workers were allowed to play cricket on one of Bradfield Hall
Farm fields. Over the years the ground has developed and now boasts one of the
best playing surfaces and outfields in the whole of the Norfolk Cricket
Alliance. We are a friendly and social club, one of the few remaining founder
clubs of the Alliance, and again one of the few attaining the Clubmark award
for the third consecutive time. Two sides play Alliance cricket on Saturdays
with the first team in division two and our second eleven in division six and our
Sunday side will be playing in division two of the Mid Norfolk Sunday League.
Winter nets will begin on February 6th through till April 17th at Cromer Sports Hall 8.00 –
10pm and continue at the ground from April 24th throughout the season on Thursday’s
6.00pm – 8.00pm.
Youth cricket is a major contributor to the
development of Bradfield and was operated at the club long before it was introduced
as a stipulation for clubs to play in the Alliance League, and benefitting
several other local clubs. Under ECB guidance the club operates theSafehands policies, for its under 17, under
15, under 13, under 11 and under 9 sides and all coaching sessions. With the withdrawal
of funding there will be no under 17 competition this season but all other age
groups will play league as well as some friendly matches throughout the season.
Under the guidance of fully qualified coaches winter training sessions will
begin at North Walsham Sports Hall on Sunday 19th January continuing
through to April 13th, 4.00pm – 6.00pm. for age groups under 9, 11, 13 and 15.
