A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset, for several years to Cheshire and more recently we have wandered in our touring too, taking in visits to Cheltenham, Taunton and Canterbury). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.
The site continues to grow in scope, despite having made its first appearance twenty-one and a half years ago in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, summary scorecards, detailed scorecards, match reports and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at (going all the way back to the club’s inaugural season in 1959), the Badgers ‘Honours Board’, a list of the current club officers and links to our social media ‘presence’.

A lovely afternoon and evening saw the Badgers and Woodmansterne finish the 2021 season in fine style, with the home side claiming the season series by winning this decider. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.
Now that the final game is in the record books I will start on the end of season processing, most of which is automated these days, so expect to see the usual barrage of new entries for the 2021 season report before very long (maybe even tomorrow if all goes swimmingly).
Also, my apologies but the previous update may have made it onto the public web server after the fact, due to an error in the script that uploads the changes. Fortunately it did not stop a handful of one time Badgers turning up to watch the current team play their final game of 2021 whilst reminiscing on how things were different in their day :)

Our third visit of the season to play Woodmansterne tomorrow will hopefully see the season end with a game of cricket. Details have been added to the fixtures page.
Sadly last week’s visit to Hampton Wick saw the Badgers comfortably win the ‘staying after the game’ period of the day, with all bar the barmaid having left the building before any Badger did so and with a dozen Badgers still in situ at four in the afternoon, despite the fact that the game was rained off not long after the intended start at one. Way to prop the bar up team!!

A game has been arranged for tomorrow, Sunday 19th, against Hampton Wick Royal on their ground in Bushy Park. Details have been added to the fixtures page but sadly I have not found time to update the Google Map.
Another ‘home’ game last Sunday, against another new opposition in Christchurch, saw the Badgers record another good win. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

Sadly we ended up not playing today, a real shame given the weather, because the outfit that Mark arranged a game against called in sick on Saturday morning with half the team apparently testing positive for COVID-19.
Our 35th visit to Blindley Heath saw the Badgers notch up their 15th win against the home side with no interference from the weather this week. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.
The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the drop down menus at the top of the page (under Badgers’ Burrow).
