Belhus CC Oldest and Youngest

Oldest & Youngest

*          *          *

 Since the eighteenth century, the game of cricket has been played by young and old alike.  Over the years, fathers, sons and grandsons**, from age 6 to 70, have donned their whites for Belhus CC and, in the process, the club has witnessed some remarkable playing performances.  Records* will always be broken, of course, but some records can last for many years.  The list of records below acknowledges those players
who have displayed their skills either early or late in their careers, and we salute their impressive achievements.

  * Please note:these records do not relate to performances in youth matches.
** In 2014, three generations of players appeared in a Belhus CC match - Cliff, John and Zak Wilson played together for the 5th XI against Harold Wood CC on 5th August 2014.

N.B. In some cases, it was not always possible to establish the precise date when an 'in a season' record was achieved.  We have therefore adopted the 30th September as the standard date for calculation of such feats.
