Huncote Cricket Club are a small village club based in Leicestershire, England. We run 2 teams in the new Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket League. Having finished 4th in the now disbanded Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division in 2013 we finished 2nd in Division 5 (West) of the new league structure in 2014. This year our 1st Team will be playing in Division 4 (Central) and our 2nd XI will be competing in Division 8 (West).
We also run a Sunday friendly XI who compete against other local friendly teams with the view to developing the younger players at the club. The club also embarks on overseas cricket tours having recently returned (October 2013) from a visit to Mallorca, Spain. This was the clubs 7th overseas tour since 2000. The club has also entered a team in the South Leicestershire Midweek League in the past and this is something that we may be looking to reintroduce this coming season.
We play our home games at Huncote Sports & Social Club. The clubhouse built in 2004 to replace the old pavilion boasts 4 team changing rooms and umpire changing, bar and function room to cater for up to 100 guests, kitchen, pool table, dart board, patio area and large car park. From this base we also have hosted a number of events in the past including our annual presentation evening, poker, darts and race nights as well as running fundraising schemes such as the bonus ball and fantasy cricket.
