nutravet are delighted to continue their sponsorship of Cartmel Cricket Club for 2013 season onwards
Cartmel Cricket Club, founded 30 June 1852 by The Earl of Burlington for workers on his Estate, and today, his ancestor, The Lord Cavendish of Furness is the Club President.
The ground is unique, as it is the only one in the country situated entirely within a race course.
The 1970’s saw a host of County players grace the turf at Cartmel, amongst them: Farokh Engineer, Brian Statham, Norman Gifford, Alan Ormrod and Imran Khan, all playing in the benefit matches that were staged, however, in 1978 a publicised match between Cartmel CC and Worcester County CC was brought about by the friendship formed over the years between Basil D’Oliveira and the Club. He brought a team of 1st Class players to play the village boys as a thank you for the years of support. Over 3000 spectators watched that match - not bad for a village with only 500 inhabitants.
In 2002 Cartmel CC celebrated its 150th anniversary with matches, a celebration dinner and a book. Titled ‘Twix Cock and Fairy’
