Welcome to Bures C.C.
Who are we?
The club is unashamedly “village” in nature.
We are a club with players ranging in age from 14 to 62, with varied abilities, but the one thing in common throughout is that we all like to have fun. We no longer play any league cricket so only play friendlies against other local sides, but they are always competitive. Periodically throughout the season, we play rambling or touring sides, to add variety, meet other clubs and new challenges. We only play limited over cricket, so we only ever win or lose, and whilst we always play to win, losing is quickly forgotten in the pub after the game. With the River Stour running alongside the ground, on hot days it is lovely for a quick dip after the match. Situated on the Suffolk side of the Suffolk/Essex border our ground is a beautiful quintessential English cricket ground with a thatched pavilion.
On special occasions, or when touring sides visit, we often make a day of it with a pre-match lunchtime barbecue to welcome our guests and to make it a memorable occasion for all.
We are always looking for new recruits, so if this sounds like the sort of cricket you would enjoy, please contact us. We would be delighted to hear from you.
