We are sad to announce the passing of David Hayes.
He was a good friend and mentor to so many players over the years.
He was also actively working on the roll on covers only a couple of weeks before being taken ill. He built the sight screens from scratch and repaired them after they were damaged in high winds af a few years ago.
He will be missed
We are always looking for new members to join our club.

A very important decision was made at the end of the 2015 season. It was agreed with the Blackheath Wanderers Sports Club committee that the cricket section would revert to the title of Blackheath Wanderers C C starting in 2017 thus ending the connection with City of London C C.
COLCC was grateful to BW when they lost their ground in Grove Park. Amalgamation with a local club was the only way of survival. After a lot of leg work an approach to BW was accepted. Steady progress was made by both the 1st XI and 2nd XI to climb up the divisions in the KRCL with the 2nd XI breaking in to the KCL. The 1st XI gained promotion to the KRCL Premier Division where they have been outside of a promotion position. Maybe 2017 will see their fortunes change and an improvement of a 4th position?
Over the seasons there have been some notable individual performances and although not always part of a promoted team we have had the best batters, bowlers and all-rounders in divisions on a few occasions.
For the 2nd XI in KCL Div IV we can boast six of the top 20 batsmen with Junaid Ahmed topping the runs with 572 and a top score of 130. In the bowling department Benn Higgs was our best at number 5 with 25 wickets with his left arm spin. Six bowlers were in the top 25.of the division. Apurva Anand was the best division out fielder with 14 victims 12 caught and 2 run outs. Furqan Iqbal’s keeping saw him in 5th with 7 catches and 3 stumpings.
The 2nd XI finished 3rd in the KCL div IV.
