Chorleywood Cricket Club have been playing on The Common for nearly 200 years and, for passers-by in the summer months, the sight of a cricket match in progress as they drive or walk through Chorleywood is always a memorable landmark. The club is a thriving local success story that has had a glorious history, a successful present and, thanks to a dedicated membership who want to ensure the legacy of the club for years to come, exciting plans for the future.

New Pavilion Update New! Posted by Martin Tyler on 20th Feb 21

We know you will share our excitement that work is about to begin on the new Cricket Club pavilion and Mission EmployAble training café. The original 1960s building which is in bad repair will be demolished in March. The new pavilion will enable the Cricket Club to grow and to extend opportunities to play cricket to girls, women and people with disabilities.

It will also house a café run by Mission EmployAble, which, in conjunction with Bucks College, will train young adults with learning disabilities, via supported internships.

The café will be open every day to all comers, serving delicious home-made food for snacks, light lunches and afternoon teas, all with magnificent views of the Common. The café will also have a small gift shop.

Keep an eye out on the website's new buildings page which will show you how we are doing. The building site will be protected by the contractor Boom Construction Ltd from day one by secure and newt fencing as recommended by the ecologist, and parking and welfare facilities for the contractor will be provided on-site.

We especially wanted to thank all of you who have supported our fund-raising efforts so far. The Cricket Club and Mission EmployAble's joint scheme was launched to raise £2m, £1.7m of which has been raised already.

We will have plenty of new events planned during 2021 and have some spaces available for the Charity Golf Day on the 16th April. Click here for ticket details.

The new building is due for completion in late 2021/early 2022.

Gulam Sherali New! Posted by Nigel Tyler on 29th Jan 21
It's with huge sadness that we have just found out that Gulam Sherali passed away last night. Gulam joined the club in 2010 and went on to be a regular in the 3rd XI, while also making significant contributions to both the 2nd XI and 4th XI when needed. He was an extremely talented cricketer who could be relied on to guts out runs on any kind of wicket, who had incredible hands in the field and who was always thinking about the game and offering advice to the skipper. It was clear he knew, and loved the game deeply.

Gulam will be remembered for many feats on the cricket field - promotion winning knock for the 2nd XI, just missing out on his 100 for the 4th XI on a baking hot day in Ramadan (and then keeping for 49 overs!), diving one handed catches under the nose of the batter for the 3rd XI, batting on, covered in blood, after taking one in the face on a dodgy track in the 4th XI, and countless other fine innings with the bat.

Most of all though, Gulam will be remembered as someone we all enjoyed playing cricket with. He was a true gent with a great sense of humour who was always open with advice and help for others ..... and he had the baddest batting gloves you'll ever see! He will be hugely missed.

Condolences to his family from everyone at CWCC and rest in peace Gulam.

Mission Employable Fund Raising New! Posted by Martin Tyler on 12th Nov 20
ME have a couple of fund raising events to be aware of:

Christmas Wreath competition until the 27th Dec Click here for info

And lastly a message about the ultra running...

When the Ultra was cancelled, Brent covered the required 100 miles in 24 hours by running around Chorleywood and the surrounding villages, spurred on by socially-distanced shout-outs from individuals along the way. Along with his running crew who pushed him tirelessly throughout the day and night and kept us updated with pictures, videos and lap times. (Great for his family who were glued to the WhatsApp group over in New Zealand.) Without a doubt the best part of the run was being with his son Luke, 15, who ran alongside him for the last 11 miles.

On his return to Chorleywood Common in 23 hours and 41 minutes, Brent said that he completed the marathon in order to keep his promise to the charity. Chorleywood Common where locals were out with their families enjoying the sunshine just erupted into to applause when the two of them came racing towards the Cricket Club out of the woods. Brent said "It was an overwhelming finish. I really wasn’t expecting anybody to be there and when I came over the hill I was very surprised. I want to thank everyone for their fantastic support of a wonderful cause. I am especially proud of Luke who gave me such motivation at the end."

Brent has raised a staggering £10,810 for us here at Mission EmployAble. The last £2080 came in throughout his run on the 7/8th from many local families who crossed paths with him over those 24 hours. We have not heard the last of Brent and his determination to make a difference - watch this space.

"Amazing. What a wonderful achievement and huge thanks for such a massive fundraising effort and support" Katharine Weston: Founder of Mission EmployAble
