A WELCOME TO THE BEDFORDSHIRE COUNTY CRICKET CLUB WEBSITE FROM THE PRESIDENT

It’s a great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of Bedfordshire County Cricket Club as another season gets underway.

Although the 2017 season was another disappointing one for the club in the Unicorns Minor County Championship we did enjoy some success in the Unicorns Trophy one-day competition & we did win a T20 Competition at Bury St. Edmunds. This year we are looking forward to being successful in all three forms of the game.

Andy Reynoldson has again been appointed captain,Who along with coach Jason Colman and Beds Cricket's Will Sneath will make up the selection committee. Ian Smith continues as chairman of the club. With Bob Browning as Secretary & Mark Wynn as Treasurer. On this site we will endeavour to keep you in touch with all the news from the club as the season goes along.

For those of you who don’t know, the Minor Counties Championship is split into two divisions of east and west with the winners of the groups playing a four-day game to decide the destination of the title. Bedfordshire play in the Eastern group with Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Cumberland, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Staffordshire and Suffolk. Because of cost and insufficient time, each county plays only six games which means that each season, on a rota basis, you don’t play three counties. There is also a one-day competition which is now a straight knock out, plus for 2018 a T20 Competition

Bedfordshire have won the championship twice - in 1970 and 1972 – and shared the title in 2004 after a rain affected final with Devon. Bedfordshire won the one-day competition at Lord’s in 1999 and also reached the final in 1983 and 1996.

Bedfordshire takes pride in the fact that in recent years three players who played for the county as teenagers, Monty Panesar, Alastair Cook and Graeme Swann, went on to play for England.
