Stogumber Cricket Club: A Legacy of Excellence

Founded in 1875, our club stands as a tribute to the hard work and passion of our members and local community. Discover our journey, milestones, and celebrated figures.


Stogumber Cricket Club was founded in 1875 and now boasts one of the best appointed grounds in the West Country. The pavilion and outfield act as tributes to the remarkable amount of work and effort put in by members and local people over the last few years.

Stogumber has a proud cricketing history, including such players as Jack White who played for England in 1929. However, support for the club dwindled and in the mid-seventies it ceased to play.

The club's fortunes were revived in the mid-eighties using host grounds for their fixtures. In 1990 the present ground became available, purchased by a group of trustees and work began on the square. The pavilion took shape throughout the autumn of 1990 thanks to the skills of the Bryant, Hayes and Penny families.

The first match was played against Carhampton in the spring of 1991 and the official opening took place on Saturday May 14 1995 by Dennis Silk, Chairman of the Test and County Cricket Board, who brought a celebrity XI to play the home team.

In 2018/19, the clubhouse underwent an extensive refurbishment programme, including the provision of female and disabled friendly facilities, and was officially opened by England and Somerset Cricketer Marcus Trescothick MBE. That year, the club was also visited by Tom Abel, Somerset and England cricketer, who ran a training session for the youth players and presented awards at their end of season event.
