Kenilworth Cricket Club are very pleased to advise that a defibrillator has now been installed at our Ground in the event of it ever being needed to give someone urgent medical assistance following them suffering a sudden cardiac arrest at the Ground or in the nearby local community.

The unit is fully charged for use.

It is located on the external side wall of the Clubhouse on the patio area opposite the Bridge Club/changing rooms building, in a heated secure yellow coloured cabinet.

There is a coded keypad lock on the external cabinet in which the defibrillator is stored, for security purposes.

The defibrillator – a Powerheart G5 AED – has also been registered and listed with the WMAS (the ambulance service), so should it ever be required when a ‘999’ call is made to them, the code to the cabinet will immediately be given, so that access to the defibrillator can be gained.

There is also a medical pouch in the external cabinet and that should also be taken, along with the defibrillator, to the patient as it contains scissors to cut away any clothing etc, and other items.

The defibrillator is fully automated.


The Defibrillator is now registered on the West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) system with its location at the Ground, as below:

ID: 4567

Postcode: CV8 1FE

The ID number and the postcode are clearly displayed on the outside of the cabinet.


The below link shows how this particular defibrillator works.


The more we all know how to use a defibrillator, the better the chance there is of saving a life. It is 4 minutes 48 seconds in length.

The defibrillator has been installed as a tribute and in memory of Club Stalwart, Alan Davies, who devoted so much time to the Club, especially with the Groundwork and in the nets at the Club, along with his other roles at Leamington FC and its Youth Section, in particular, who very sadly and unexpectedly died last year.


Housing Development update

Aerial Video of Ground and fields

The below link is to the Richborough Estates’ website and has an aerial video of the Ground and also the two fields that surround us that will be subject of the forthcoming housing development. It is well worth looking at, even if just for posterity purposes!

Richborough Estates have chosen their preferred Housing Development partners (details currently not confirmed) who are going through their due diligence process prior to purchase of the land.

The Club’s Housing Development sub-Committee will be meeting with all parties, in due course, to have further discussions with them before a formal Reserved Matters Application is submitted by them to Warwick District Council’s Planning Committee for approval.

Members will be kept up to date when further information is made available.

Death of Club member

Paul Gutteridge

It is with great sadness that the Club has been advised that Vice President member, Paul Gutteridge, sadly died on Tuesday 18th. September 2018 at Myton Hospice.

Paul was a regular attendee and visitor to the Club supporting the matches and social events for many years.  He was a popular and well respected Club member and will be sorely missed. There are so many happy and pleasurable memories of such a fine and good humoured gentleman by those that came into contact with him and knew him.

It is a very sad loss.

The Club passes on its sincere condolences and its thoughts to his wife, Brenda, and the rest of his family at this very sad and difficult time for them.



Paul’s funeral will take place at Canley Crematorium, Canley, Coventry at 12.00 noon on Wednesday 10th. October 2018.
