Horton, Ilminster, Somerset
Broadway & Horton Cricket Club
Broadway and Horton Cricket Club play at Pound Road, Broadway, near
Ilminster. The club has modern facilities, and play their cricket amongst
some of the most beautiful countryside in Somerset.
Broadway and Horton CC runs two Saturday sides, who both play in the
Somerset Cricket League. The league has 12 divisions, of which our 1st XI
are now in division 4 (3 promotions in the last 5 years!) and our 2nd XI
play in Division 9SE. Recently our 2nd XI won the prestigious ‘Don
Crouch Fair Play Award’ for the whole league. Both sides are selected from
many local lads and lasses of different ages (shapes and sizes!) - we are also
very proud of our excellent cricket teas (...and tea ladies).
On Sundays we run a Mid Wessex Sunday 40 over League team. We also
run some youth coaching for our younger members on Thursday evenings.
Our pre-season nets will start on Thursday 4th Feb at 7:30 at Heathfield School, Taunton TA2 8PD.
We are helped financially by gratefully receiving sponsorship from our local village pub The Five Dials and from 60 or so Vice Presidents who are either village residents or ex-residents.
Every year we run at least one major fund raising event, which in the past few years has taken the shape of sponsored walk, village fete and a sponsored batathon. This years fund raiser will be ‘Inter Pub Knock-out Cricket’- featuring the 4 local pubs going head to head , in between BBQ and bar breaks! Each year we also support a local charity.
We are a village cricket club in every sense.
