The Club Today
OSSCC is based at Garons Park, which was home to the Essex County Cricket Club Southend Festival for numerous years. The club is structured through a broad range of squads. On Saturdays we have 5 teams that compete in the HAMRO Foundation Essex League. On Sundays we have 1 team that contends in both Warsop Sunday League and friendlies. The club also accommodates youth Cricket for U’11’s, U13’s and U15’s. In addition to this OSSCC has partnered with official ECB programmes, such as Dynamos and All Stars Cricket, which introduces on average between 25-30 children to the sport each season.
OSSCC intends to expand both of our senior and junior sections by associating ourselves with schools and organisations within the local community to support club projects. We are firm believers that our sport is a game for all. This is why we are focused on removing the boundaries that prevent individuals from participating to promote an inclusive environment for all - regardless of age, ability, gender, race or economic reasons. From this the club will seek to upgrade our coaching capacity so that our base can become a focal point for training purposes within Essex for all levels of Cricketers. Within this digital age we also understand the importance that social media can have, not only as a commercial asset, but as a tool to attract these future players. This is why we will look to enhance our multi-media capabilities, introducing new forms of live-action and interactive content to make both our sport and club accessible for the next generation to come.
OSSCC was formed as an amalgamation between Old Southendian Cricket Club and Southchurch Cricket Club in 1983. The club initially played at Southchurch Park before transferring over to Garons Park in 2016. The club retains close connections with Southend High School for Boys which has helped us produce players throughout the years.
