The Old Elizabethans (Barnet) Cricket Club was formed in 1940 and is the third to bear the name. It initially was a nomadic club, but after the war settled first at Tudor Rod sports ground in New Barnet and then at the War Memorial Playing Fields in Mays Lane Barnet.
The club is an open club, but retains its links with QEBS by way of the annual Past versus Present cricket game played at Stapleton Field in early July. Our playing membership also includes about twenty OEs.
Founders Sunday remain a key date in our calendar and we host a 6 a side tournament each year on the third Sunday in June. Bar open from noon.
The club has been a member of the Hertfordshire Cricket League since the early 1970s and fields two XIs, one currently in division 4 and the other in division 10. A 3rd XI has been entered into the league for the 2007 season.
Division 4 is the highest league standing we have attained and 2007 will be our third season at that level. In addition a Sunday XI and occasional Sunday 2nd XI play social cricket.
We have a strong colts section, with under 11, under 13 and under 15 XIs competing in the Middlesex Colts cricket league. Those OEs with children in this age range who wish to get involved in colts cricket are welcome to attend our Friday night sessions which run between April & August.
All OEs are welcome to become either playing or non playing members. Anyone interested in joining should contact Mark Chenery, details below. We have a small but supportive group of Vice Presidents and we would be delighted to add to this esteemed list.
