We are delighted to announce that the club has successfully applied to the ECB (England & Wales Cricket Board) for re-accreditation as a Clubmark club. The following statement is from the ECB website:

"ECB Clubmark shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people."

George Todhunter

The Chairman and Committee of Cockermouth Cricket Club are sad to announce the passing of our former Chairman and Life member George Todhunter. George was a stalwart of the Cricket Club for many decades and his commitment and dedication to our Club was never more amply demonstrated in his single minded determination to get the Club back on its feet following the catastrophic floods of 2009 and 2015.  He project managed the recovery on both occasions, securing funding from insurance companies, community foundations and statutory bodies and various charitable bodies. The Rotary Wall that now gives protection along the perimeter of the boundary closest to the River Derwent was secured by George's lobbying for support.

On 12 February 2017 a large number of members were present to see the naming ceremony of the George Todhunter Pavilion which reflected both the respect and admiration that Cockermouth Cricket Club felt for George. Being able to attend the naming ceremony with his family was a happy time for George and this was reinforced only 24 hours later when Cockermouth Cricket Club's most famous son, Ben Stokes, made a timely visit to see George immediately after his appointment as vice-Captain of the England Cricket team. This single action encapsulated what all of us felt in terms of deep respect and admiration for all that George did on our behalf over several decades as a player administrator and most of all leader. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Jean  and daughter's Emma and Sara. The town and community of Cockermouth will deeply mourn the loss of a man who left such an indelible and lasting mark on the place that he loved.

The club has honoured two of our longest serving and hardest working members by re-naming the pavilion and the ground after them.

The George Todhunter Pavilion and The Raymond Denham Sandair Oval were officially re-named on Sunday 12th February.

Thank you to all who came to the naming ceremony of the ground and Pavilion. It was a happy and moving morning where 2 legends of our club were rightly rewarded for outstanding service. For those who couldn't make it I am sure your thoughts and best wishes were felt by those who were there.
Regards to you all.
Stephen Chambers ( Chairman)
CCC a great club to be part of.
