1st XI to return to Division 2
League rejuggle works in BCC favour
The 1st XI will return to Division 2 East for the 2015 season. To keep it simple, due to Troon withdrawing from County One, Menheniot/Looe took their place given that they were relegated from that league at the end of the 2014 season. Discussions were carried out at Boconnoc and other clubs, and at the end of that Ian Hunter's men have taken up the opition of a 'promotion' and have been admitted to Division 2 East.
Their season will begin on Saturday 25th April when they will host Callington 2nd XI. The two bank holiday fixtures see games against Liskeard.
The 1st XI had a two year stay at this level for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. In the 2010 season they achieved a solid mid-table finish.
Our 1st XI play in Division 2 East of the Cornwall Cricket League. The current captain is Michael Blake with Rob Foot as vice-captain. The 2017 season saw the side maintain their position via finishing 10th.
2018 has seen some new additions to the side with John and Will Thurston moving to the area and signing with the club and incomings after nearby Liskeard CC packed up with Steve Marchant, Joe Coates and Jamie Coates joining the club.
The side are always looking to bring in new players so if you would like to join the side then email Rob Foot on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Michael Blake also represents Cornwall Over 50s in their ECB Counties side. Emily Geach is another Cornwall representative and plays at various levels for Cornwall.
