South Nutfield Cricket Club
Established in 1893, SNCC has provided playing and lifelong friendship opportunities to many men, women and children for over 100 years and seeks to continue to do so and spport the club's continued growth into the future.
We believe sponsorship of our club will deliver value based on a marketing investment for financial return, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) or simply for the love of our club.
Whatever your motivation, please read on and thank you for visiting our profile.
Why Sponsor Us
SNCC solely relies on the generosity of its members, supporters & local businesses to provide both the manpower and funding to run our club as efficiently as possible. Without these contributions, the club would not be able to exist in its current form or be able to achieve the goals it has set for itself in the medium to long term.
The club is a registered CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club), dedicated to facilitating and supporting the sport of cricket for anyone in its surrounding areas. We run on a not-for-profit basis ensuring that we reinvest any funds raised back into the club, for the good of the community. We strive to maintain low overheads so we can scale our annual investment to meet our ambitions.
As a club, we aim to be a strong part of our local community and to deliver the best value we can to our members and guests. We have numerous ambitions as a club and are one of few in the local area showing consistent year on year playing personnel, membership and financial growth. Our most burning desire is to facilitate the erection of a new pavilion which we envisage being a focal point for the entire community. We plan to offer it as a facility for weddings, events, birthdays and so on where there is presently a lack of such resource in the locality. We would also like to house additional sports within this facility which would include a pool team currently in existence but playing elsewhere and the resurrection of a past darts team.
Where Are We Now?
The club still retains the family ethos and the cricketing values we all know and love, from the day the club was founded. In 2019, thanks to some fantastic new arrivals, we won the Surrey Downs 1st Division for the first time in the club's long history. In the same year, we won the Surrey Slam South region and were runners up in the overall competition. The club has since lodged a request to join the Fullers League, harbouring ambitions to navigate through the divisions with the longer term aim of joining the Surrey Championship.
We are four years into the All Stars programme, which has seen our colts section expand from 35 children, primarily boys to a thriving 120+ now with a more equal split between boys and girls, ensuring that future generations are able to blossom and develop into any of the adult teams and continue the club's progress. As an All Stars centre, we are one of the biggest in Surrey. It is an ECB scheme we wholeheartedly support. Giving children sporting opportunites and allowing them time away from electronic devices is surely an ethos we can all buy into.
At a similar time, the club established a Ladies XI who compete in various friendly and Surrey based leagues and cups. We are committed to supporting cricketing opportunities for anyone of any age at our club.
Also in 2019, the club was the recipient of a significant donation from one its Vice Presidents. Through his and family's generosity, the club was able to build a fully enclosed, high quality outdoor netting facility, something which has seen significant use from all teams and age groups within the club ever since it was completed.
There is an embedded passion for cricket and dedication to local success in all, most of us having originated or still living in the locallity. The club is moving away from a low income, low spend model towards a more integrated, sustainable model to deliver longer term growth through local partnerships and sponsorships rather than being bankrolled by a single wealthy benefactor.
These changes are beginning to take effect, with green shoots of promise showing after three or four years of operating more intelligently. Improved financial health, increased participation & new community ties, such as our link with the local primary school, are evidence that the steps the club has taken are beginning to manifest themselves in setting the right foundations for future prosperity.
Our links with the community and assisting in providing training for youth cricket helps to tick the boxes when it comes to social responsibility for the club, and its sponsors.
We anticipate that this is just the start of a new beginning, with a bright future ahead.
The club’s ambition is to build on the progression seen both on and off the pitch over the last few years. On the pitch, we are aiming for continued promotion and success to all of the adult and youth sections. We seek to continue the growth of both our membership and the club finances so that we can continue to develop as a club. Cricket is thriving presently and we wish to thrive with it.
Off the pitch, there are aspirations to build upon and foster stronger community links and local partnerships with a view to providing a community centred club for future generations to join, support and enjoy. Our number one priority is the development of a new pavilion, something which we plan to design to accommodate the entire membership (seperate male and female facilities) and that can be used equally by those in the surrounding locality.
We are planning on launching a 3rd Saturday team for the first time in the club's history in 2021 and are presently searching for and evaluating nearby grounds to add to our pitch availability options.
South Nutfield Cricket Clun
1893 - Present
We are located in a wonderful small village in the heart of Surrey, called South Nutfield. The club was started in 1893 and has been a central hub of the community ever since. We won the 1st Division in our league for the first time last year, a year that also saw our 2nd team promoted to the 2nd tier, something that very few teams in the league have achieved.
In the 2020 disrupted season, the club has entered 2 teams into the Surrey cricket leagues. Supporting this on a Sunday is 1 team playing in a Surrey league and a developmental side playing in a Surrey cup. Adding to the senior cricket every year is a strong youth section, with a full section of age groups from 5 years old through to under 17, both boys and girls.
We are thriving, growing, expanding and capitalising on the huge strides forward that cricket has made in recent years and we look forward to welcoming you to join us on the journey.
