Welcome to Cowbridge Cricket Club
Cowbridge Cricket Club’s first
recorded fixture took place in 1840 against Bridgend. Today the Club runs
three senior and four junior teams, playing on a beautiful ground.
It was not until 1913 that the
cricketers of Cowbridge had a permanent home when the Cowbridge and
District Athletic Club was established. What is now our home had been
created by a Mr E H Ebsworth in 1895 on a field called Cae Wyndham and it
had been used by a club known as the Glamorgan Gypsies who subsequently
merged with the Cowbridge Wanderers. Today the Athletic Club remains our
parent body encompassing rugby, tennis and squash as well as cricket.
The standing of the Club was
recognised in the 1930’s when Glamorgan played four matches at Cowbridge.
England captains Douglas Jardine and Tony Lewis have played for the Club
and test players J C Clay and Hugh Morris have had close associations.
Today Cowbridge has two representatives on the Glamorgan staff in Ben
Wright and Alex Jones.
