... is located in the Western Downland village of Damerham on the Northwest edge of the New Forest.
Damerham Cricket Club plays Saturday League, Wednesday League, Sunday friendlies and a Colts side who play in the Thursday evening league.
League cricket has been played here since the 1950ís. Originally it was the Dorset league, and about a decade ago Damerham joined the Hampshire league.
2007 was, to our knowledge, the most successful year to date, in league terms. We remained unbeaten all season, won the league, and promotion.
In 2009 we clinched promotion again, this time rather less comfortably, winning the last game on the very last ball of the season.
Damerham Cricket Club...
... Is about how long cricket has been played at Damerham.
Graham Colbourne, who has been DCC Secretary for almost a third of that time, has team sheets and subs lists dating from 1832.
Around 100 years ago, the team moved from a site off Cornpits Lane in the South End of the village to its current ground. Graham & Colinís grandfather laid the original square.
The pictures on the left are from the Salisbury & Winchester Journal showing team sheets dating back to 1959, a game between the Damerham Amateurs and Rockbourne, a fixture which is still contested today.
