WHO WE ARE
We are located within the idyllic settings of Lancot Park, situated at the foot of Dunstable Downs, on the outskirts of the village of Totternhoe. The ground and clubhouse were constructed in 1993, and we hosted our first Minor Counties Championship the following year, when Bedfordshire played Northumberland in 1994. From 1994 to 2008, the ground played host to 13 Minor Counties Championship matches, with the final Minor Counties Championship match played to date at the ground in 2008 seeing Bedfordshire host Suffolk. The ground has also hosted 5 MCCA Knockout Trophy matches, the most recent of which saw Bedfordshire play Buckinghamshire in 2009. The ground has also hosted a List A match between Bedfordshire and the Derbyshire Cricket Board in the 1st round of the 2002 Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy, which was played in 2001. The Northamptonshire Second XI have also used the ground for Second XI Championship matches.
We aim to run 4 Saturday sides, 3 playing in the Saracens Hertfordshire County Cricket League, and one in the Bedfordshire Cricket Saturday League. We also have three Sunday sides in the Bedfordshire County Cricket League and one Sunday-friendly XI. At the Colts level we run sides throughout the age range and are proud of the numbers that play at Junior County level. We are probably one of the most successful Colts clubs in the County. Last year all our colts teams had a very progressive and successful season.
During the winter we play in the Bedfordshire Indoor Cricket League at the John Bunyan Centre in Bedford and there are also Indoor Cricket Leagues and Cups that the junior section competes in as well, which is at the Choice Cricket Centre in Redbourn.
We are an ECB-accredited Focus Club and have gained Clubmark accreditation which recognises sports clubs that exhibit excellence in club organisation and have active policies relating to Equity, Child Welfare and Safety. In addition, a full cricket programme for both senior and youth players, supported by appropriately qualified and accredited coaches and volunteers.
