Welcome from the Chairman

Thank you for visiting our website. We are incredibly proud of our record as a club and are fully committed to providing a high quality cricketing experience for our members, whatever age they may be. The club is on the up having had an outstanding season in 2015. We enjoyed success at all levels from our 1st Team, who won promotion back into Division One of the Kent Cricket League, down to our Under 9s who were successful in winning tournaments across Kent. One of our greatest acheivements last season was the setting up of a Girls cricket section. We are family oriented and set very high standards of organisation. We are always keen to welcome new members so if you are looking to play cricket this summer then please feel free to get in touch. If you are keen to support us through volunteering or sponsorship then please feel free to email me as well. Lastly, our home Montreal Park, is a great place to watch cricket and enjoy a sociable drink on a summer's afternoon or evening, so please feel free to pop down to the club in the summer. I look forward to meeting existing and new members this summer.

The history of Holmesdale Cricket Club

The Pavillion

Holmesdale Cricket Club was founded in July 1840 by circular to local Gentry appealing for members. Inaugural members included such illustrious names as The Right Hon. Earl Amherst, The Right Hon. Earl Brecknock, The Right Hon. Lord Viscount Holmesdale and Sir W R P Geary Bart. Holmesdale’s home ground is Montreal Park in Riverhead, a delightful gently sloping location on the outskirts of Sevenoaks. Several sports have been played on the ground over the years. Soccer was played for many years and grass court tennis courts existed between the current bowls and cricketing ground as recently as the 1980’s. Holmesdale Bowls Club remains, having been founded in 1911, but it is cricket that has been the consistent factor.

Several international cricketers have played at Holmesdale CC including two future test captains – Chris Cowdrey (England), John Wright (New Zealand).

Today, Holmesdale boasts the largest junior section in the area and was the first to achieve the coveted ECB ClubMark Status in 2004 & reaccrediation in 2008 & 2011, in recognition of excellence and safety in junior coaching. This led on to Holmesdale becoming an ECB Focus Club in 2008.

Holmesdale were Kent League Division 2 1st & 2nd XI Winners in 2015, Kent League Division 3 1st & 2nd XI Winners in 2008, Kent League Division 2 2nd XI runners up in 2009, Kent League Division 1 Winners in 1979 & Kent League Division 2 Winners in 1984.

Holmesdale work closely with our current sponsors Amherst Accountancy and the Raj Bari, Sevenoaks and with our partners B2 Cricket.
