Gumley Cricket Club
Welcome to the official website of Gumley Cricket Club, Leicestershire’s quintessentially English village cricket club.
Gumley Cricket Club is a small, friendly village cricket club situated in outstanding picturesque surroundings. Our cricket field sits just north of the village of Gumley on ‘Gumley Top’, cricket has been played here for over 100 years. Our unique setting allows us to play cricket with soaring buzzards overhead, grazing sheep just beyond the boundary fence and even the occasional cow sauntering onto the outfield during play! The road from Gumley to Laughton quaintly passes through our outfield, during matches signs are positioned at each end politely asking drivers to wait until the end of the over before driving through.
At Gumley CC we play Saturday league fixtures (Northamptonshire Cricket League), Sunday friendlies and occasional midweek cup and friendly cricket. We welcome all ages and abilities, and remain determined to safeguard the atmosphere and old traditions of grass roots village cricket by fostering sportsmanship and inclusiveness. All games, whether friendly, league or cup, are treated with equal emphasis, effort and friendliness.
We hope this brief introduction has been of interest and encourages you to come along. Everyone is welcome whether player, spectator, supporter or helper!
