Founded in 1842, the club is steeped in history. The story of our first 150 years is documented in John Wilcox’s informative and amusing book, “Playing on the Green. A celebration of 150 years of Banstead Cricket Club”. Copies are available from the club or Hon Secretary for a suitable donation.

 

Some key dates in the history of Banstead CC.

 

1842: Club founded. There is circumstantial evidence of a match between Mitcham and Banstead in 1840, but the first documented evidence is of a match between Banstead and Twickenham on 25th July 1842.

 

1847: Our earliest scorebook reveals a match played against Bromley.

 

1850: The Avenue Road ground came into existence, with construction of the square funded by Sir George Glyn.

 

1892: Pavilion (our current changing rooms) opened

 

1899: Avenue Road ground land purchased by Hon Francis Baring, and trust deed set up handing over management to a board of managers.

 

1900: WG Grace plays at Banstead

 

1932: after a quiet period in the 20’s, the third XI was re-formed

 

1936: the club expands further with a 4th XI

 

1939 – 1945: the war years did not stop the club from functioning, and a celebration event was held to mark the Club’s centenary in 1942, and records show that future Surrey players Derek and Ron Pratt joined as juniors.

 

1946: by 1946 the club had 353 members.

 

1964: Our second ground, known as The Rosehill ground, was purchased for £4000, and opened for play in 1966.

 

1968: League cricket introduced with 18 founder clubs. A 5th XI with regular fixtures was started.

 

1970; our “new” pavilion, formerly Barclay’s Banstead temporary bank building, was opened. In 1971, the old pavilion was refurbished as changing rooms.

 

1975: two members each take all 10 wickets John Jake v Sutton, and John Wilcox v Beddington. The later event overshadowed Mike Carver’s maiden ton on the same day! The Condie family also took all wickets and catches in a match against Old Paulines in the same year.

 

1977: our first lower XI club tour – to Kent!

 

1982: Banstead win the Warwick Wright twenty over competition, aided by a hundred in the final by David Ward, and go on to win the trophy again in 1983, 1988, 1996 and 1998.

 

1984: First class cricket comes to Banstead when Surrey plays Cambridge University June 26th – 29th. A remarkable event when two debutants to 1st class cricket both made their maiden centuries in the same innings – Nick Falkner (of Banstead 101* and Keith Medlycott 117* This was at the time the only time this had happened in English cricket, and only the 4th time ever.

 

1986: 1st XI wins the Surrey Championship.

 

1988: the 3rd XI joins the Surrey Championship.

 

1991: The club joins forces with Reigate Hockey club to enable winter use of the facilities. This ran until 1995 and was replaced by a rental arrangement with football in 1996.

 

1996: The clubhouse is refurbished and the terrace is built.

2000: Banstead U15s win the National U15 Championship.
