The Blunham Cricket Club playing achievements during the 2012 season were accompanied by more ground improvements,
especially at Roxton and the new nets at Blunham. Notable highlight of last season was winning the midweek Hospital Cup,
with a thrilling 9-wicket win in the final. This was made an even sweeter win, when the records show that Blunham LOST the final of Hospital Cup
in 1937 - so finally the cup was claimed by Blunham, 75 years after our last appearance in the final of that competition !
Blunham also reached the final of the Heritage Cup, but ultimately losing to Flitwick. The weather last season
was one of our biggest opponents, with many matches being lost to rain. We are hoping for better things on the
weather front, next season.
On Sundays in 2013, we have sides competing in the Bedfordshire County Cricket League, with the first XI in the
Premier Division for the very first time, and the 2nd and 3rd XI's in divisions three and four respectively.
on Saturdays the 1st and 2nd XI's will play in the Huntingdonshire County Cricket League, divisions one and three
respectively, whilst the 3rd and 4th teams will be playing in the more local Bedfordshire Invitation League.

On Saturdays in 2013, the first and second teams will again be playing in the Huntingdonshire County League, whilst
the 3rd XI team and the Blunham/Roxton team (4th XI) playing in the more local Bedfordshire Invitation Saturday League.
On Sundays, we will again have three teams in the Bedfordshire
County league. On most weekend days, one of the sides will be usually playing at
our home ground in Barford Road, Blunham, or at the second ground in Roxton. Our home ground and facilities are
carefully maintained by the Blunham Playing Fields Association, so please come along and support the teams at our
newly re-furbished facilities. For anyone living in Blunham, the ground is only a gentle stroll away, and you'd be
made most welcome.
The senior sides also play in the mid week leagues and cup competitions, so are often seen playing on summer
weekday evenings. By clicking on the buttons on the left you can learn more about the club, it's history
and the various activities that the club undertakes.
For example, on Friday 26th August 2011, we held a special match against the internationally famous Lashings World XI side.
