There is an art to curating a fixture list for a cricket season. Welcoming back old cricketing friends and foes, making the ground accessible to touring teams, getting the right mix of afternoon and evening games, and making sure there is a variety of standards from the teams that travel with League cricketers to the local village teams filled with occasionals.
Our new Honorary Fixture Secretary, Guy Ladenburg, has served up an excellent new fixture list for 2024 that features 7 new fixtures, a rare away match, a touring side from New Zealand, and a bicentenary anniversary match.
The old favourites are back, from Invalids CC and Rioteers CC, and the always-strong London New Zealand and Sussex Martlets are returning too.
The season is bookended by new opposition, starting in April against nearby Stansted Park and finishing in September against Windsor Great Park.
Brigands cricket is inclusive and we have members of all cricketing abilities; we welcome new players who enjoy playing timed cricket on a beautiful cricket ground and anyone interested in playing should go to the Contacts page and reach out to one of the Committee.
