Foxton History

Foxton Cricket Club is a thriving club with a strong ethos of 'cricket for all'.

In the last ten years the club has brought itself to the top of cricket in Cambridgeshire, it became a Focus club and first gained Clubmark Status in 2008 which is retained to this day. It has focused its efforts into raising the quality of the playing surface, which is now among the best in East Anglia, regularly hosting representative cricket at different levels. In 2009 it received grants from the Lords Taverners, MCC and South Cambs Council which allowed it to purchase a roll on net and its first set of covers. For the 2017 season the club was fortunate enough to be awarded a grant from the Amey Community Fund to allow them to build an electronic scorebox, this represents the development that the club has made in a relatively short period of time.

In recent years (2016 and 2012) the 1XI have twice won the Cambs & Hunts Premier League and have ambitions of entering the East Anglian Premier League in the foreseeable future. The 2XI have successfully gained back to back promotions and will play in Senior League 1 in 2017, only two leagues below the 1XI.

In 2015, the club had the most successful cup run in it's history where it reached the final of the National Village Competition held at Lord's Cricket Ground. Unfortunately the team fell just short at the final hurdle but there is great hope throughout the club that the team can one day go one step further. 

The club has a thriving and highly successful colts system which runs teams at a range of age-groups. All colts receive high quality coaching from qualified coaches and assistants but are always on the look-out for more volunteers! Both training and matches for colts are held in mid-week evenings during the summer.

Much of this success has been down to the hard work of a number of individuals and the continued generous support of our sponsors, without which the club would not be able to continue

Here's to many more successful years
