Simon Hughes will be our guest speaker at this year cricket club annual dinner, on 7th April 2017 at 7pm (Roding Lane)
We’re delighted to announce that Simon Hughes was a right-arm fast-medium bowler who was a key part of the Middlesex side through the 1980s, although his contributions tended to be overlooked in a side that was packed with internationals. Nevertheless, he won four Championship titles with the county. A graduate of Durham University, he was a natural recruit for them when they gained first-class status in 1992, but like so many of their imports, he was by then past his best.

The Club was formed in 1864 at the High Road and the Roding Lane ground was acquired by the Club in 1946. The 1st and 2nd XIs were still playing at the High Road in 1964 with the 3rd and Extra 3rd XIs at Roding Lane which housed the Club bar. The 1st and 2nd XIs changed to Roding Lane shortly afterwards, although in the 1969 season Loughton, Enfield and Ilford chose to play one last match at the High Road in preference to Roding Lane.
Until the late 1970s the Old Chigwellians used the Roding Lane pavilion in the winter and played football on the outfield until they developed a ground closer to Chigwell School which allowed our Lacrosse Section to play at Roding Lane and we became an ‘all year round ‘ Club. Lacrosse celebrated their Centenary in 2012.
Buckhurst Hill CC is an ECB Clubmark Club, a founder member of the Shepherd Neame Essex League and celebrated its 150th Anniversary in 2014. In addition to fielding five Saturday XIs and two Sunday XIs we also have a flourishing junior section with teams from Under 9 to Under 16.
