A happy New Year to everyone at Old Buckenham Cricket Club, we are hoping for another successful season on and off the field throughout 2015. The First team will be under the leadership again of Terry, look to improve on a disappointing Premier Division season last year.
The second team has Mark Dunnett at the helm again for the 2015 season; with Briggsy and Mark looking to continue the improvement in the youngsters who gained a brilliant promotion to Norfolk Alliance Division 2.
The third team is again lead by Paul Fitt in the newly formed Norfolk Cricket League Level 3 & Jamie Lincoln continuing his brilliant work for the Fourth team in NCL Level 5. The Norfolk Cricket League have regionalised their bottom six divisions for the upcoming season.
