Cricketing DBS clearances

Cricket DBS Clearances

If any Member feels that they ought to be DBS checked for cricketing purposes for their roles, please contact the Hon. Secretary, Andy Smith, at

Not only can he initiate such applications, he is also an Approved ECB DBS ID Verifier which eases the process in obtaining such clearances.

The Club is due a FULL Clubmark application this year and numerous people, in varying roles,  will be required to undertake such a DBS clearance application at the Club. It is a painless task.  Do not be alarmed if you are identified as one needing such clearance.


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


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.
