Knowle and Dorridge Cricket Club

Knowle and Dorridge Cricket Club is an amateur cricket club in Knowle, near Solihull in Warwickshire. They play their home games at Station Road in Knowle. The 1st and 2nd XI’s play in their respective premier divisions of the Birmingham and District Premier League – one of the strongest Leagues in the country – whilst the 3rd and 4th XI’s play in Division 2 of the Warwickshire Cricket League against other club 1st and 2nd teams.

On Sundays the 1st and 2nd XI’s play in the top Division of the Warwickshire Sunday League and the 3rd XI play a set of friendly fixtures at Lugtrout Lane.

In 2005 the amalgamation of two clubs – Knowle & Dorridge CC and Arden Forest CC was completed to enable the club to utilise more fully the facilities at its second ground at Lugtrout Lane.

The thriving Junior section has a full programme during the season and there is activity for at least one of the age groups on every night of the week. At the moment we are proud to claim that one of our junior members represented England Under 15’s in 2004! For further details of a full programme of practice nights and matches, see the JUNIORS page.

The Club Colours are Green and Gold and the club emblem is the Bear and Ragged Staff.

The club is situated between the ‘villages’ of Knowle and Dorridge on Station Road, Dorridge, Solihull, West Midlands, and the second ground is situated on Lugtrout Lane, Solihull.

Apart from its playing strength and cricket tradition, Knowle and Dorridge CC boasts a strong social membership. The Club is open every evening of the year (except Christmas Day!) and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons - throughout the winter as well as the summer,and anyone who visits will be ensured of a warm and friendly welcome.
