Stowupland Cricket Club
Stowupland Cricket Club LogoStowupland Cricket Club was founded by Rick Langford in the swinging 60's (the overhead conditions must have been just right for a whole decade). Currently the club consists of 9 teams including; the Saturday First Team (which plays in the Two Counties West Division 6), the Sunday First Team (which plays on Sundays in the Hunts County Bats League Division 1), the Second Team (which also plays in the Hunts County Bats League but in Division 4), a Wednesday evening Team (which plays on Thursdays, only joking, Wednesdays in the Stowmarket and District Mid Week League), and Youth Teams comprising of Under 7's, Under 9's , Under 11's, Under 13's and Under 15's.
History
Stowupland Cricket Club as we know it today was formed in 1968. Cricket had been previously played in Stowupland upto 1968 although no records exist. In 1968 Rick Langford and Jim Hudson started playing on the old village green. They took their teas originally in the back room of the old Retreat pub, and when that was redeveloped had teas in Ruth Prings garden, before moving to the pump house on the green. In 1982 they moved to the village hall playing field where they still play today. The village hall offers comfortable changing rooms and a fully licienced bar which was a bit different from the old times. The first honours for the club came in 1997 when they won the league cup, with a fine win over favourites Thurston, the match being played at Woolpit. The after match celebrations are now part of club folk lore.
