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.

HISTORY

127 years of cricket played the right way. For fun.

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!

Stone CC Committee

Martin Hallet
Martin Hallet
President
What more can be said about this guy than hasn’t already been written. The true heartbeat of the club and a man who’s cricketing ability and achievements surpass anything that we could strive towards. His service goes well beyond 50 years and he remains a very active member of the club. His act is one of the features of a Stone CC presentation night with quizzes tougher than anything those Pointless chumps can produce.
Dave Bateley
Dave Bateley
Chairman
Stumpy has been a regular on the Kent village cricket circuit for well over 15 years. With this knowledge and also his mantel of nothing is worth doing unless it is done very slowly, he was the perfect choice to step in the big shoes of Stone CC Chairman for 2018. There are rumours that even the pavilion might be named after him.
Matthew Dine
Matthew Dine
General Secretary
Continuing his handy work with the pen for 2018 is our leading spinner. His minutes are as precise as his offspin.
Ross Gower
Ross Gower
Captain
Ross takes the highest honour and captains the side for 2018. He brings a very selective wit but also some great hat choices to the team.
Jordan Garrett
Jordan Garrett
Vice Captain
Second in command and leading from the front in supporting his captain. If he’s sober that is.
Ryan Garrett
Ryan Garrett
Treasurer
This ginger haired assassin continues to move up the ranks and having a holiday or two to pay for this year means he has jump at the chance to take over as Treasurer. Bringing his digital edge to the role expect every penny to be hidden off shore and bit coin shares to hit the roof.
Matthew Blain
Matthew Blain
Fixture Secretary
He’s made no secret of wanting this position for many years and now he’s got it. Already throwing his weight around on the Social Media fixture secretary circles he pitches a good day out. Forget the cricket. What’s your tea facilities like?
Matt Goodfellow
Matt Goodfellow
Team Director
Matty G has somehow managed to cling onto his job on the Stone Committee for many years. No-one is quite sure re what he actually does, but if there is a team announcement that needs to be made he’s your man. Without this guy we would not get a team out at all and on the rare occasions he turns out for the club he will always add something whether with bat or ball. Just don’t expect him to buy a jug.
Michael Chung
Michael Chung
Committee Member
We welcome a new member to the committee for 2018 and he comes in the form of our own Panther like batsman. He looks good, plays good and am sure will bring good form to our new set up.
Richard Pusey
Richard Pusey
Committee Member
Showing his popularity in the club, Dicky has been welcomed onto the committee for this year. A cheery chap who is always smiling he brings some much needed happiness to the board and hopefully won’t let the power go to his head and effect his fine bowling attack.
