Club History and Honours


· 1895 - In June 1985 the local C of E magazine announced the birth of Ladock Cricket Club through the efforts of the Rev S. J.Peake in a field kindly lent by Mr Silvanus Stephens.  Two friendlies were played against Probus – Probus won both.  The first captain was Mr Samuel Lobb Stephens.

· 1897 - In April the AGM was held and Miss Wise lent the club a field to play in (probably the first field on the right after the village as you head towards Fraddon).

· 1905 - Cornwall Cricket League formed but Ladock didn’t join until the 1960s – the club continued to play friendlies until that time.

· After the First World War the club resumed playing friendlies against local teams, and this continued into the 1920s and 1930s.

· After the Second World War cricket resumed again, and in 1948 the club had a balance in hand of £59 5 s and 41/2 d – about £1,850 in today’s money.

· In the late 1940s teas were still served in the Village Hall across the road, and the cricket field was used for grazing.  Saturday mornings were spent removing ‘pancakes’ from the outfield, but inevitably Ladock acquired a reputation as somewhere where fielders would need to ‘watch their step’.

· 1965 - Ladock won the Crouch Cup and promotion to Junior One East.
