he first record of cricket being played in Stevenage comes on the 17th August 1796 when they defeated Hitchin by
seven wickets. Stevenage CC was formed in the 1860s only to fold in the early 1870s. During this period the club
again beat Hitchin, this time by 200 runs. The occasion was marked by a fine 121 from Edwin Goodyear of Markyate.
The club was reformed again on June
30th 1877 with a view to being ready for
the 1878 season. Since then they have
gone on to put together a history of
which they have every right to be proud
and their current group of players will
be keen to add to their illustrious past
over the coming years.
At present the team is based on
Ditchmore Lane in Hertfordshire and
their first team currently competes in
the Championship of the Hertfordshire
Cricket League. They are led by the
team of Chairman Richard Burling and
President Peter Allen and the club has
made a considerable amount of progress
under their guidance.
This season they have made a
steady start to their league campaign,
having put together a record of
three wins and four defeats
from their nine league matches
played to date with the other
two being abandoned. This
has left them sitting in a
mid-table position with 117
points on the board.
