Welcome to Cam Cricket Club

Cam Cricket Club is an established, ambitious and successful club with strong family and community links. We welcome everyone warmly (old and new) to the club.

We look forward to an exciting season in 2018 and a good spring to benefit ground preparation, with the 1st XI newly promoted to County League Div 1. The 2nd XI in County League Div 7 and our other two senior teams in Stroud League 1 and 2. We continue to give players the chance to develop and improve. The theme of development is best demonstrated by our thriving junior section developing our future senior players.

Not a good day at the office in the league, however better news in the cup

Cam 1st XI 61-10 lost to Painswick 1st XI 65-2 by 8 wickets

Cam suffered a heavy defeat at home to Painswick as an abject batting performance saw them fall to an eight wicket defeat.

Having been asked to bat first, Cam made a good start with Jake Dolbear finding the boundary early on. Pete Hall fell cheaply as a mistimed shot saw him caught for two. A procession of wickets then followed with the score on 25 as Dolbear, Ben Holloway and Ryan Western all departed, as Boon collected four wickets for the away side.

Sean Rocke departed cheaply soon after, and when Cam’s main resistance Alex Ballard was bowled for 21, Cam found themselves struggling to collect any batting bonus points. Jake Parrott was run out following a calamitous mix up and Adam Holloway was stumped after drinks as Cam’s batsmen continued to falter. The innings was wrapped up soon after as Adam Philp was adjudged LBW and George Dolling was last man out, to give Hobbis his fourth wicket, as Cam managed a paltry 61 all out.

Cam’s opening bowlers Dolling and Charlie Viney knew there was only a very slim chance of victory, but both bowlers weren’t disheartened as they attempted to force an early breakthrough. Dolling trapped Telling LBW for 4 and Viney followed suit in the next over to remove McDuff for 3. This was as good as it got for Cam however, as Morris and Woolway steered Painswick to a comprehensive victory.

There was better news on Sunday as a mixed strength Cam side travelled to Dymock in Round 1 of The Gloucestershire County Trophy and ran out victors by a huge margin as they racked up 400-6 from their 40 overs. Jim Seal and Jake Dolbear added 216 for the first wicket before Seal fell in the 19th over for 118 from just 55 balls. Jake Dolbear reached his ton soon after before retiring on 117 from 75 balls.

Further contributions from Ben Dolbear (30), Ben Deakin (29) and George Dolling (42*) saw Cam continue to pile on the runs as they eventually finished on a mammoth 400-6 from their 40 overs.

An impressive spell of bowling by young second team bowler Cameron Moore ensured that Dymock’s chase never got going as he ran through the top order to claim figures of 5-18 from 7 overs. Steve Rice (3-12) and Chris Wilcox (1-7) also got among the wickets as Dymock were bowled out for 71, Cam running out victorious by 329 runs.

Cam 1st XI travel to Chipping Sodbury on Saturday hoping to claim a victory to kick-start their season, while the 2nd XI will hope to follow up their 5 wicket victory last weekend as they host Bourton Vale 2nds.

Youth Section

At Cam Cricket Club we pride ourselves on the quality of our youth cricket section. A significant number of today’s senior players started their ‘cricketing careers’ as junior members at the Club and that’s a tradition we want to continue. We run All Stars catering for 5-8 year olds, U11s, U13s and U15 levels.  Competitive fixtures are played in various formats throughout the season. Weekly training/coaching sessions are held during the spring and summer months
