"LUTON CARIBBEAN CRICKET AND SOCIAL CLUB"

The Birth of LCCC.

In the winter of 1993, the Two remaining Black Cricket clubs in Luton, Chevette and Luton International, realized that the time had come to combine both clubs as One. Black cricket had been on a downward slide for years.  Both clubs were unable to attract any new players and unlike the Asian players, cricket was not in the blood of the British born young West Indians.
An amalgamation made sense, it would extend the long term future of West Indian cricket in Luton.

The wheels were set in motion in February 1994. The proposed name for the club was "Luton Caribbean Cricket Club"  The rules and constitutions were drawn up, and the foundations were put in place to hopefully, take Black cricket to another level.

The President of the new club was: Silburn Stevenson, Vice President: Ossie Lewis, Founders were: Hyden Andrews, Godfrey Arthur, Dudley Belone, Veronica J Joseph, Ossie Lewis, Elwood Smith and Alex St.Ville.

The following persons were made Life Members: Godfrey Arthur, Veronica J Joseph, Elwood Smith, Patricia Smith, Leslie Joseph, Neville Burke, Winston Service, G Campbell, Lloyd Patterson, G Gonsalves and Roy Wilkinson.

A Message from the Chairman


Dear,fellow members,supporters and friends we welcome you to Luton Caribbean Cricket and Social Club.

This year 2016 my committee and I are endeavour to move this club forward in all departments with your help and support.We have put in place a number of things which I am sure will lift us up to another level .

This season we have planted our cricket firmly in Beds Cricket affiliated to England and Wales cricket Board.

We are working against the flow on this bearing in mind the down trend in Caribbean cricket over the last two decades.However all is not lost with a few more hands on deck and a few new members playing and non playing

we will achieve our goals.

We are currently playing our Saturday cricket in the morrands four counties league third division .This season we will

be strong contenders for promotion.Our friendly fixtures are played on Sundays,these games are good entertainment

and very competitive .Club bar open all day your support is greatly appreciated.

Junior Cricket  [WICKETZ  HUB} is free played every Thursday evening 6.00 to7.30 starting 17thMarch 2016 at Ashcroft high school Crawley Green Road.Boys and girls ages 8 to 15 years are invited.
