A standing order of just £4 per month buys you 5 shares and the chance to win one of the above monthly prizes.  It is also a great fund raiser for the cricket club.

If you are a player already paying a monthly direct debit to cover your annual subs and match fees then why not increase that by £4 per month.

Or you can buy 1 share which will be a one off annual cost of £15


So if you are not currently a member of the 100 club, why not?  If you are, why not ask friends and family to join us as well, the more that join the more the prizes will continue to be.

Please contact Rachel Dickinson now for any questions or to join e-mail

03 Oct 2017 : A Big Thank You


A huge thank you to everyone for making the End of Season Awards a great success but it wouldn't be right without a special mention to Aidan and Nick for their fantastic double act hosting the awards.


Given the way events unfolded on the dance floor later on during the evening it now looks that Boxmoor CC have adopted YMCA by the Village People as a club anthem !! You have been warned


Thanks Again



31 Jul 2017 : Fixture Secretary


  After many seasons as the club's fixture secretary Colin Hollick has decided that this current season will be his last, Colin has worked tirelessly to ensure the club has a full fixture list both junior and senior and without club members like Colin we wouldn't have cricket at the Moor and a thriving club.  

 The club will be looking for a new fixture secretary for the 2018 season, anyone who would like some more details about this role should contact Matt via for more details in addition to the brief summary of the role below.

 The fixture secretary is responsible for arranging all senior & junior fixtures, liaising with coaches, captains & groundsmen, updating the website and communicating club details with opposing clubs. 

 I would like to take this opportunity to thank Colin for everything that he has done for the club as fixture secretary, umpire and collator of club records & history



20 Jul 2017 : Sponsorship - Cambridge Motors

Further good news on the sponsorship front as Cambridge Motors have decided to continue their sponsorship of the Club for another season. They are the Club’s longest sponsor and I'm delighted that the joint owners Philip King and Anthony Deer have continued with their support for another year.

Cambridge Motors are a well established firm in Hemel and are based at the top of Northridge Way in Hemel supplying a range of cars to suit all needs and requirements for personal or business use. If they do not hold a particular car in stock they will be able to source it or provide advice on viable alternatives.

Phil and Tony have access to hundreds of cars through online and trade contacts so if you do not see the car you want, or you have a specific requirement please give them a visit and they can show you a selection of cars available from their wholesale sources. Many of these vehicles are under 3 years old and very low mileage, all with full service history and prepared to the highest standards.
