Eaton Bray Cricket Club is 100 years old in 2014. The first match the club played was against Caddington away on the 23rd May 1914. Don't know the score but someone might.
We are looking to put together a history of the last 100 years with photo's,stories,score books,minute books or any documents we can find.
At the moment we are searching 50 years of Focus Magazines and 100 years of the LBO and Dunstable Gazzette for reports.
We are only after copies which will be held on show in the clubhouse for all to see.
If you can help with any of the above please contact the web site or Eaton Bray Cricket Club direct at the Rye, on Twitter or Facebook.

We are currently searching back issues of the Focus magazine going back 50 years kindly lent to us by St Marys Church.
We have also found some Parish Magazines from 1956 but are unable to trace anymore.
Does anyone know of the existence of the Parish Magazine and where we can find some please.

Match to celebrate the centenary of EBCC has been confirmed by the Marylebone Cricket Club against an MCC team for next year.

Well done Barm.

Have now finished scanning printing and collating 48 years of Focus from 1964 to June 2012. Thank you to Catherine Hayden and Peter Bennett for supplying us with the magazines.
We have also been sent a photograph of a 1924 Leighton Buzzard League winners medal presented to Bill Neville. Thank you to his Granddaughter Linda.
