East Bergholt Cricket Club is one of oldest cricket clubs in the country with the first match between the Gentleman of East Bergholt against the Gentleman of Ipswich being recorded in the Ipswich Journal in September 1745.

 

The Club sits in Division Two of the Two Counties League (Essex and Suffolk). The Two Counties being a feeder league to the East Anglian Premier League.

 

East Bergholt is proud to have produced such fine cricketers as the legendary Ray East (over 1000 first class wickets for Essex) and Phil Caley, who captained the side before moving on to Captain Suffolk for more than 10 years.

 

EBCC has strong links with Perth Cricket Club in Western Australia – the last three of the club's professionals having come over to improve their cricket from a team that spawned Dennis Lillie, Adam Gilchrist and one-day international keeper Luke Rochi.

 

More recently,  the side has been coached by the former Essex and England fast bowler, Neil Foster and is looking for promotion to Division Two while developing future professional cricketers – a truly exciting time.
