Stone cricket club
Welcome to the website of Stone Cricket Club, we are a friendly cricket team based in Stone, near Dartford in 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 Chairman and 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 Stone Recreation ground on Hayes Road, Stone.
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 Chairman, 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!

Better late than never provides the perfect tagline for Saturday’s performance with a Stone record 9 players all receiving fines for lateness with young Jack Rogers suffering the ignominy of arriving after the games start time. With the effects of Operation Yewtree still being felt through the club for its previous questionable “youth” policy, it[…]
Not much of a pre match routine this week, had to take Tom to his Duke of Edinburgh thing at Hope Hill near Brands Hatch, walked the dogs, made Bacon rolls and got ready for cricket. Went to pick up the team Director, who was too busy doing his weekly shop to be at home[…]
Alan Hanson famously once said, “you can’t win anything with kids”… Well now Sidcup Vs can add themselves to a long-list that includes Man Utd (95/96), Tatum O’Neill, The Seattle Seahawks (Superbowl XLVIII) and The Mighty Ducks is disproving that theory. Fair play to them as well, they batted positively, bowled tidily and took some[…]
3 weeks into this Match Report gig and I can already feel myself running out of material and there is a danger the rest of the season could resemble later Eddie Izzard tours later wherein once you have seen one performance you have seen them all. In the hope I can find some inspiration from[…]
Allow me to start this week’s match report at around 12.30am Saturday morning. Having demolished a magnificent lamb karahi in the Bengal Lancer, Chislehurst and going into my 13th hours of drinking, worrying about the team Stone CC would field on Saturday was the furthest thing from my mind. I had my visor and wrap[…]
