Welcome

The village of Shere lies in the Tillingbourne valley on the south side of the North Downs, between Guildford and Dorking.  An early account in the Domesday Book (1086) lists 1 church, 2 mills, 14 ploughs and 3 acres of meadow and woodland.

Not a lot has changed, except the 2 mills were swapped for a couple of pubs and the 3 acres of meadow and woodland now hosts Cricket games on a Saturday (and sometimes Sunday) afternoon. For a full list of fixtures, past and present, click here.

Cricket has been played in the village since 1671 and the team currently take part in the Surrey Downs League Division III. The ability of most of the players can best be described as 'enthusiastic' - and we would welcome any players who can chase a fast-moving cricket ball without falling over. If you can catch/bat/bowl - that would be a great bonus.

If you aren't sure where we are or need directions to any of the games, there is a map of the ground here. There is a contact form on the website too, if you'd like to get in touch.

The history of the club in all it's forms can be found here. Did you know for instance, that the earliest recorded player of baseball - William Bray, gave up playing in favour of Cricket 6 years after his first game?  You can find out more about this - and other useless bits of trivia - on the Club's history page here.
