Cricket Club History
The first written record of a Brightwell Village Cricket Team playing is against our neighbouring village of Moreton in 1858 and this date has been adopted as the year the Club was founded, the club celebrated its 150th year in 2008, quite a legacy for the club and the village.
Parish Records show that the Brightwell Cricket Club has played on the Recreational Ground, in Mackney Lane since 1897, and in 2003 a state-of-the-art facility was built for use by all the community and named the Jubilee Pavilion.
Over its long history the Brightwell cum Sotwell Cricket Club has predominately played “Village Cricket” considered “Friendly Cricket”. There is a competitive edge to most games balanced by friendly banter.
Games are arranged with as many local villages as possible, interspersed with visiting Nomad and the occasional Touring Sides. The club has a real family feel, with a number of fathers and sons playing.
