Haslingden Cricket Club are seeking a caterer for home games (including cricket teas) and for social functions held at the club.
If you are interested please reply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 01706 215365 (after 7pm on weekdays).
Haslingden Cricket Club are delighted to announce that we are to ‘Partner’ with the CriKIT Charity in order to recycle redundant cricket equipment and clothing from within our club and donate this to CriKIT.
CriKIT is a new, registered, non-profit making organisation set up by 17 year old Tom Robinson. Once CriKIT have received donations of kit and equipment from clubs such as ourselves, they will then arrange to ship it over to South Africa for the Kit to be distributed where best needed, most commonly in severly underprivileged South African Township areas. To make this possible CriKIT has formed a relationship with the Gary Kirsten Foundation who can distribute such kit where it is needed most. The kit will be given to individuals who need the equipment on a free issue basis with no money involved.
Kit collections at HCC will be arranged over the coming weeks and information will be distributed via email, twitter and in the club house regarding these collections.
If you would like to learn more about CriKIT, then please take a look at their website, a link for which is given below :
If any other Lancashire League club would also like to be involved in this project, then Tom can be contacted directly through the above website. Alternatively kit could be arranged to be dropped off at HCC on the specified collection dates which are as follows :
Friday 4 May, Friday 11 May, Friday 18 May & Friday 25 May – all from 6.30 to 8.00
Summer opening times – from Sat 14th April 2018

The committee are much saddened to announce the passing at the age of 86 of our former President, 1st XI Captain and Honorary Life Member John Winter. Our sincere condolences go out to Maureen, his family and all his friends and our thoughts are with them all at this sad time.
In a 1st XI Career spanning 29 years from 1947 to 1976 John scored 7659 runs at an average of 16.8 with a highest score of 94 and with John passing the 50 mark on 58 occasions.
Despite suffering from illness in the past couple of years, John was still a regular visitor to Bentgate to watch the cricket when his health and the weather permitted. His passing is a sad loss to the Club.
John’s funeral will be held on Wednesday, April 25th. There will be a service at St Mary Magdalene, Gawthorpe Road, Burnley at 1.15pm and then Burnley Crematorium at 2.20pm.
Further information will be added this post as it becomes available.
The relentless deluge of rain from above has finally resulted in all Lancashire League fixtures for this weekend being called off.
The 3rd XI fixtures are moved en bloc to Sunday 22 July.
A decision in relation to the 1st and 2nd XI fixtures will be made at the league meeting on April 25th.
With better weather forecast for the coming week, we look forward to starting the season next week.
As the 2018 season of the Lancashire League rapidly draws upon us, please see below relevant guidelines and regulations adpoted by the Lancashire League which apply to all Member Clubs, their representatives, players and members. If anybody is found to be in breach of these guidelines then disciplinary measures against that person are likely to be put in action by the League. Please familiarise yourself with the guidelines and then we can all continue to look forward to the exciting season ahead.
Haslingden Cricket Club is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative. Any money received will go to drainage improvements on our ground which are much needed. We are one of three projects in our local region competing for the monies available in this round of funding so every vote for us will be vital.
Voting is open in all Tesco stores throughout January and February and our stores are Haslingden and Rawtenstall. Customers will cast their vote using the blue tokens given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. DON’T FORGET TO ASK FOR YOURS! Please encourage all friends and family members who may not be part of the club to vote for HCC and help us in this funding drive.
