Sunbury CC currently runs 4 competitive XIs in the Surrey Championship.
Friendlies begin in April, before the league season begins in May, and runs all the way until early September, comprising of 18 fixtures in total.
As one of the most competitive cricket clubs in Surrey, Sunbury combines a bar-setting standard of cricket with a hugely enjoyable evening following the end of the days play. At home, two matches are played on both the top and bottom square, enticing large crowds and great support, and once the away teams arrive back from their fixtures, a truly entertaining evening ensues.
Here is a run down of the teams fielded on a Saturday:
The 1st XI compete in the Surrey Championship Premier Division, and are one of the founding members of the inaugural Surrey Championship, and have been part of the Premiership every year since 1968, bar a brief period between 2003-2006. The 1st XI have been one of the strongest sides in the premiership over the last decade, winning the trophy consecutively between 2015 and 2016.
The 2nd XI compete in the Surrey Championship 2nd XI Premier Division, and last won the coveted trophy in 2006, under the leadership of Gavin Spencer.
The 3rd XI compete in the Surrey Championship 3rd XI Premier Division, and last won the title in 2015 under Curtis Higgins, winning 13 matches and racking up over 300 league points for the season.
The 4th XI compete in the Division 3 West, having been promoted in 2019 under the captaincy of Ranjit Gopi.
