Old Warden Cricket club is nestled within a stunningly beautiful English village. We like to call ourselves the 'Home of Village Cricket' more so because we play the game in the true spirit. As much as we are competitive we love to laugh, enjoy the odd beverage or three and encourage new and young players to develop.
Covid hit us for an enormous '6' as it did everyone. We have no financial backing at the club and rely on fund raising events and the generosity of players and supporters to keep us afloat.
In a normal year we have race nights, curry nights, Classic Car shows, Barbecues, formal dinners and a six a side competition
Obviously we have not been able to fund raise as we normally would and therefore do not have the ability to raise funds to fix our much loved roller or indeed to buy a new one. We estimate that we need 5K that would help towards repairs or replacement.
Unfortunately, having purchased and fitted some new wooden gates to the pitch, these were stolen two weeks later:(
In order for our club to exist we have to have a working roller in order to prepare a wicket.
If there is anyway that you can help us we would be so grateful, we want cricket to stay in Old Warden and everyone who visits the village to stop and watch us play.
