Our home league game v Bradford On Avon on 29th June was a double winner, not only did we win by 15 runs, but our PINK DAY raised a fabulous £517 for Against Breast Cancer. Read the full story how Pink Saturday was born across the Wiltshire Cricket League, and supports both teams and breast cancer research. Follow KCC on Facebook for updates.

2019 SEASON – news update:
Well the new season is almost upon us. Excitement and anticipation is escalating. We have a new league captain, Si Emmett who is carefully corralling his troops ready for the new campaign. We have a few new players joining the ranks this year and are always open to more. Competitive stuff on Saturdays in Wiltshire Cricket League Division 3 and proper cricketing afternoon fun on Sundays from the end of April to the end of September. And a few fast paced T20 midweek games too.
Come and watch and cheer us along, particularly in the first few weeks as the league team sport their fresh and new playing kit (huge thanks to Keevillian Simon Newton for his sponsorship of the shirts!). We have repaired the benches and have a brand new supporters’ bench donated by the Keevil Drama Group following their production of the cricket caper “Outside Edge” at the end of last year.
Keevil Cricket Club is a precious thing to us all and we rely on just a few people to keep us buoyant and in good shape. We keep things simple and costs very low but there’s always lots to do on the playing square and around the ground and our fund raisers are important to ensure the ground beautiful and machinery repaired, served and updated regularly. We need a couple more benches and are looking to add to our boundary edge facilities.
We are hugely grateful for the affection and support of the village communities in raising funds for us and promoting us to the Melksham Area Board recently. We had the option to push for funding for new sight screens, although wisely we declined as the pressure from the league to have screens is more than a year away and there were many more worthy causes for the limited budget being allocated.
Follow KCC on Facebook for regular updates. Thanks everyone and fingers crossed for a glorious 2019 season.

We are always keen to welcome new players; cricket knowledge, experience, age or ability matters not a hoot. So please do come and get involved with your village cricket club. See you at The Manor.
