Another busy morning at BWCC HQ getting the ground ready for our final game of the season tomorrow.

BWCC vs Horningsham 12.30pm

We also have the flag raising ceremony beforehand at 12pm, in memory of Henry Hawksley. Henry's widow Sue and their daughters will be here and it would be great to see a good turn out from the club to show support. There will be bubbles and nibbles followed by what promises to be an exciting final game of cricket.

We look forward to seeing you all

Hi guys,

We have had a wonderful and generous gift given to the Club. Sue Hawkesley has donated both a flag and flagpole to BWCC in memory of her husband Henry, who was one of our most dearest and ardent supporter's. We will be having a formal raising of the flag just before the match against Horningsham on Sunday 18th September, which begins at 12.30. Sue and her daughters will be present as will members of the Committee, and of course those playing for Buckhorn that afternoon. But even if not available to play, it would be greatly appreciated if as many playing members as possible are there too. There will be a Toast or two, and a few tears no doubt!

Our thanks to Alex for both organising and designing the flag - which looks really fine.

Our thoughts too with Malcolm - indomitable fellow that he is, I'm sure that he will recover quickly and be back in the saddle again soon.

Best to you all, Robin

We are an active and friendly club that welcomes players and non-playing members from across a wide area with a strong social side always looking at ways to support and integrate with the local community.

Our Sunday XI plays in the MGM Three Counties League as well as friendlies against other local and touring sides.  Our Mid-week Evening XI, ‘The Stingers’, play at least one 20/20 match a week from May until mid August – so there is plenty of cricket on offer!

Our Junior cricket cycle is solely concentrating on Under 9’s cricket.  We are entering a side into the North Dorset Junior League – some of these youngsters have been with us since the age of 5 or 6!  They are very lucky to be coached by George Stewart, who gained his Grade 2 Coaching Certificate last winter.

And we also have a Golf Society!

Come and be a real part of a great local club!

flag_250wSue Hawksley and her three daughters have very generously given BWCC a flag pole and flag in memory of her husband Henry Hawksley who died in 2014.

img_0560-1_300wHenry was a great supporter of Buckhorn Weston CC and ever the enthusiast and encourager, he had a great sense of humour.

The flag was ceremoniously raised on Sunday 18th September 2016 just before the start of our last home game of the season.

The flag bears the club’s logo and motto and has the yellow letters “HH” in the lower right hand corner in memory of Henry.



Sun 14th Aug is now Horningsham Away 13:30 start (TCL)

Sun 28th Aug is now Kilmington Home 13:30 start (TCL)

Sun 18th Sept is now Horningsham Home 12:30 start (TCL)

Another great result for our Buckeroos!   BW u9’s 257/4 beat Kilmington 230/7.

The Buckeroos batted first, and despite losing 4 wickets in the first 7 overs, managed to pull it around with some spirited batting.  We totalled 257 with important contributions from Fergus, Harry, Charlie and Felix.  It should be noted that Fraser took one of those wickets whilst on as a substitute FIELDER!!

When we fielded very tight bowling kept Kilmington always behind the clock.  They never really recovered from Fraser’s double wicket maiden in the 2nd over ( yup Fraser, that’s 3 for the match!).  Ed chimed in with 2 from his wicked under arm lobs, a deserved wicket for Fergus’ much improved bowling this season, and 2 for Felix at the death.

Kilmington only had 6, so apart from providing a substitute fielder when they fielded, we also provided them with a player for the whole game.  Step forward Jago to take a bow – he stuck his hand up when I asked (though obviously not wanting too) and scored a very good boundary against us.   Thank you Jago.

Well done to all who played – onwards and upwards!

Best, Robin

We’ll have a few words later, including thanks to our wonderful sponsors and supporters.  Thankfully the rain skirted around Buckhorn until the very end!
