Welcome to Aythorpe Roding Cricket Club
Founded in 1949 after Bill Reeve persuaded the local church to gift the village the field now known as the Recreation Ground for use as a cricket pitch, Aythorpe Roding Cricket Club has made great strides in the years since.
From its early days of fielding teams of villagers to play friendly fixtures against surrounding villages utilising an agricultural trailer for a pavilion during the 1950s, ARCC now draw players from all over Essex to enjoy the first class modern pavilion and excellent playing facilities.
Since joining the Mid Essex League in 1990 ARCC have achieved considerable success:-
Premier Division Winners (twice), Division 1 Winners, Division 2 Winners, Division 3 Runners-Up, Division 4 Runners-Up, Division 5 Winners, Division 6 Runners Up, Division 7 Winners, Division 8 Runners-Up
Further success has been achieved in various mid-week 20/20 cup competitions over the years with Aythorpe’s agricultural origins often coming to the fore when batting!!
