Stone cricket club
Welcome to the website of Stone Cricket Club, we are a friendly cricket team playing in Northfleet, Kent. All our matches are friendly games, which suits our mentality of playing with a smile on our faces. Our squad consists of players from just 11 years old to 50 plus, and our rich heritage, we were formed in 1888, means the club is steeped in tradition. Our Club President started playing for the club over 50 years ago! If you are interested in playing friendly cricket on a Saturday afternoon please get in touch with us or visit us at Wombwell Park, Northfleet on a Saturday afternoon during the summer.
Formed in 1888, Stone Cricket Club has a great history as a community based cricket team. During the club's existence it has seen many great players and characters represent Stone CC. Our history is important to us, which is why we have named a number of trophies after club legends like Jim Turnbull, Roland Scott, George Matthews and Percy Saunders. Tales of our wonderful former and sadly passed away tea lady Hilda Matthews, who had prepared first-class teas for over 50 years, are part of Kent Village cricket folklore. With a living legend of the stature of President, Martin Hallett still on the scene it now rests with the new crop of Stone CC legends in waiting to play a part in adding many more chapters to the proud legacy!

This week our fixture sec greased a few palms late on a Friday night and managed to secure us a game against old foes Borden CC. With Ross chasing his lady around Waitrose for the afternoon, it was my chance to go down in Stone CC history and become the first stand in skipper to win 3 games from[…]
As Bill the writer said in his latest box set about wars with the French “And gentlemen in England, now a-bedShall think themselves accursed they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaksThat fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.” Wombwell park replaces Agincourt, and Gore 3rds replace the French, but all the[…]
With her ladyship attending the trooping of the colour and tea with Liz afterwards I was in the awkward situation of having to drive my own vehicle. We have to get more staff or there will be stiff letters exchanged through our solicitors! So, Stumpy digs up another new fixture for us from his Inn[…]
With our esteemed skipper still tending to the manor, the task of leading the troops to battle against Borden CC fell to myself. Despite the hiccup of being a player down due to illness, it all started rather well. We pulled Paul away from his planned afternoon of drinking, won the toss and put Borden[…]
I am pleased to be able to bring you the match report from yesterday’s game against Rainham CC (the one in Kent not Essex). Unfortunately the team took a couple of early blows with the loss of Darren (work) and Mike (to Chung-flu). Although missed, in typical fashion the team stepped up to the plate[…]
Her ladyship has recklessly given an extra 1/2 day holiday for 5 years service to the staff. I allowed the chauffeur to use cloths instead of his hands to clean the fleet of cars. The reason for these outlandish displays of generosity is down to one thing. Another Stone victory. The day started well with[…]
You may have already seen the double page spread in the Sunday Times documenting Stone CC’s unprecedented second victory in a row. It was quite a read but I felt they focused too much on the excellent leadership and glossed over many of the finer details. To set the record straight, here’s the official match[…]
The butler has washed the whites and cleaned the boots. Her ladyship (God Bless Her) is preparing for outstanding teas for later in the season. The grass is cut and boundaries are marked. The opposition are ready and here we are for the first match of the new season. New regime. Same team. Let’s make[…]
