Cricket In Crouch End
The club has become so well known that in 2010 Kevin Pietersen used the ground to film a commercial for his sponsor. The film has since attracted almost 300,000 hits on You-tube sending CECC round the world.
Much of the club's growth is thanks to the club's great facilities and buzzing social scene. Being central to Crouch End, C.E.C.C. also provides an excellent location for party and event hire and provides sponsorship opportunities for local businesses, with highly visible signage, a popular website and large numbers of players, family and friends passing through the club on a weekly basis.
The club, formerly known as Calthorpe CC, began playing cricket at its present ground on the Shepherds Cot N8 in the early 1900s, and has remained there ever since. The pavilion was opened in 1993 by Clive Lloyd, former West Indies Captain, Reg Scarlett, West Indies test player, and Krish Mackerdhuj, former President of the United Cricket Board of South Africa.
Over the last six years, the 1st team has won the second division of the Middlesex Championship, the Sunday 1st XI has had three consecutive promotions in the Chess Valley Sunday League, and the Saturday 3rd XI has moved up to Division 3 of the 1987 League. With an excellently run colts, in partnership with Islington Cricket Club, we also maintain our reputation through Yvette and restaurant 2sixteeen, Hornsey, for offering one of the best cricket teas in Middlesex.
The future looks very bright built on the core principles of providing competitive and enjoyable cricket played in friendly and welcoming surroundings.
