Club History

THE BEGINNING:

A Cricket Club has existed in Laugharne since about 1870 however the first AGM of the club was held on the 28th April 1889, and this is recognised as the date at which the club was founded. The Centenary year was celebrated in 1989 where Laugharne CC played Glamorgan County CC XI. Some of today's top cricketers played in that match!

The Cricket Club got their current field, Wooford's around 1953 where they have played ever since.

The year 1959 saw the Cricket Club first running their now annual Carnival. That year the club made £79/4s profit. As of 2006, the Carnival is now run by the Rugby Club.

FIRST 100 YEARS:

The Centenary Year was in 1989 when Glamorgan C.C. played Laugharne. Such up and coming players as Tony Cottey, David Hemp and Robert Croft took part in the Centenary Match (Croft's name was spelled wrongly and Hemp's was spelled "Help!")

A Centenary Book was published and memorabilia was sold during the celebrations. The club is still going strong 19 years later.

RECENTLY:

Difficulties arising with the lease of the Athletic Field. The Athletic Club has now come to an agreement with Mr. Thomas, which will secure the field and give the club the freehold. This will see that the cricket and rugby club's have somewhere to play their matches for years to come.

All all the local bodies and the community of Laugharne support this project which will then allow the Athletic Club to apply for major grant aid to help with this development.

The Cricket Team now plays throughout the summer.
