Greene King Bedfordshire County Cricket League
Welcome to the Greene King Bedfordshire County Cricket League
Our 26th season and 2016 looks to be a very exciting year for the League with the introduction of a new division and five new clubs. This will be the Leagues biggest season, more teams, more fixtures and hopefully more runs and wickets.
Andy Watts took the honour in 2011 of taking over from Ian Smith who Chaired the League for 13 years, Ian put in a lot of hard work and endeavour to take the League forward and Andy is now following in Ian's footsteps driving the League further forward. In 2016 we welcome Bedford 2nd XI Eaton Bray, Eaton Socon, Horton House, Langford 2nd XI, Letchworth, Preston, Queens Park 2nd XI and Stevenage to the League structure and we welcome Offley & Stopsley 2nd XI into the Development Division.
In 2005 we started to operate a single League ladder format that sees promotion & relegation between our all of our divisions. In 2007 we added the Development Division. In 2010 we added a fifth division. This season we have added a sixth division.
We field a Representative XI in the Club Cricket Conference Inter League Competition, known as the Sovereign Trophy. The side is captained by Carl Ferguson (Flitwick CC), scorecards & fixtures can now be seen on the Beds Cricket Board site. In 2016 we will once again take part in the Club Cricket Conference Inter League Knock Out Competition.
In 2014 our Chairman Andy Watts won a coveted ECB NatWest OSCA in the category of Leagues and Board at the prestigious awards ceremony at Lords.

Andy collected his award from England and Middlesex fast bowler Steven Finn; Andy, who was in shock at the time commented that "This award is not just for me but it is for the whole of my committee who give up a tremendous amount of their free time to help run the best Sunday league in the country. So I thank them for all their hard work".
