LATEST NEWS on the forthcoming Housing Development

Housing Development update

The latest news is that a Formal Planning Application has now been submitted to the Warwick District Council Planning Authority on behalf of Bovis Homes – under reference number W/19/0322 – for 7 x 3-5 bed dwellings to be built. They are to be located at the edge of the fields closest to Warwick Road. These dwellings will be the start of the development. The application and its associated documents showing the proposed lay out that is being applied for can be inspected by following the below link and by inserting the above reference number.

The Club’s Housing Development sub Committee are now considering this application and deciding whether or not to make comment on it.

The Reserved Matters stage for the remaining (now ‘up to 118’) dwellings in the development has yet to be formally applied for. 

For your information, there was no formal notification to, nor further engagement with, the Club by the developers regarding this latest application prior to it being made and submitted to the Planning Authority, following our last meeting with Bovis Homes and their consultants in January 2019.

However, as promised, Members will be kept advised of any developments and news over the matter, when known.

Andy Smith, Hon. Secretary, KCC





Club Members and their friends are warmly invited to the first Social event of the season at the Club – the KCC RACE NIGHT – that will be taking place at the Clubhouse on Saturday 6th April 2019 from 7.30 p.m. onwards after the Club’s first home match of the season.

The Race Night marks the start of KCC’s summer of cricket and we hope you will join us for a great and fun night.

After an unfortunate wash out and abandonment of the Race Meeting last year due to the weather, we hope to raise money to fund the upkeep of our beautiful ground. This Meeting WILL be taking place!

We will be selling horses and jockeys for the races, as well as looking for race sponsors. There will also be an opportunity just to have a flutter on each race on the night too, on a Tote style basis.

Food will also be available, whilst the bar will be fully open.

So, here’s your added chance to be part of the night:


Race horse – £7
Each race will consist of 8 horses, each horse is up for grabs and a the winner will take £25! To top it all off, just name your horse with your best double entendre!

Jockey – £3
Each jockey in each race is also up for sale, again giving you a chance to win £10.

Race sponsor – £20
Ever wanted a sports event in your name? Most likely the closest you can get for the money!

The evening event will consist of 7 filmed races of 8 horses and jockeys are available to purchase, with all proceeds going towards keep our amazing cricket club grounds in check after a bleak winter!

The final race will be an auction race, where we will be selling off horses and jockeys to the highest bidders – a chance to build on your evening’s successes (or recoup your losses!)

To purchase your horse, jockey or to become a race sponsor, please email Sam Leach direct – with your choices and please follow with a prompt payment to the club.

Please feel free to pay by bank transfer, cheque or in cash in person to Sam Leach, Geoff Edmunds, or Jonty Cousins.

For the Club bank details contact the Club, by email, at 


…. and don’t forget you can go for broke on each race at the Club on the night too.


Just turn up to the event. There’s no charge to gain entry!

Be part of a GREAT night at the Club. It’s going to be popular and a noisy fun event for all Members and friends.


We look forward to seeing you there …… at the Races!!!


Rough cutting commences

Rough Cutting

Rough Cutting around the edges of the Ground has commenced today in preparation of the 2019 season that is nearly here to compliment all the hard work on the wickets and outfield that is currently being undertaken by our super dedicated team of ground staff volunteers.

The first such rough cut of the year has been completed on part of the Ground surrounds on a beautiful and cloudless morning.

More volunteers to help out with further rough cutting would be greatly appreciated.

Let’s make it a Ground for all of us to be proud of.
