CLUB HISTORY

Himley Cricket Club was formed in 1883 with cricket being played at the Stourbridge Road ground ever since.

The original pavilion donated by Francis Grazebrook, a local entrepreneur back in 1890, was then built on the Club's present site.

Most old photographs indicate that the early teams were made up of local men from Himley and the outlying areas of Wombourne, Swindon, Wall Heath, Kingswinford and Gornal. A local fixture list was developed in the 1920's and 1930's, Second World War decimated club membership, and the ground was loaned to the RAF and the Army during the Second World War.

Himley CC famously reached the final of the 1988 National Village Championship Knock-out at the home of cricket - Lords, in 1988 where they played Goatacre CC from Wiltshire.

Himley C.C. has grown rapidly over the last 15 years. In that time, the First XI has moved from the Staffordshire Cricket Club Championship to Birmingham & District Premier Cricket League Premier Division. The club now offers excellent facilities, including two cricket squares at the Stourbridge Road facility, supporting eight senior teams and one of the top junior sections in the country, which boasts 200 plus members and countless coaches and county and district representatives.

Himley's Under 15's took home the Harry Secombe Trophy winning the NatWest U15 National Club Championship at Oundle School in Northamptonshire on Monday 10th August 2015. Playing both the semi-final and final in the same day, Himley overcame South Wilts in the semi-final and then over coming Alderley Edge in the final. Trophy's were presented by David Willey of Yorkshire CC with former England and Middlesex Captain Mike Gatting.
