Cricket

The Crewe Vagrants cricket team was formed in the 1930s as a team with no home, and playing all friendly away matches - hence the name.  Its sister football team the 'Nomads' still play today but now with little or no connection to the Vagrants.

After settling at the Vagrants' site in the 50s, the clubs facilities have evolved gradually from a meadow to it's present day excellence.

In 1976 the club linked with Crewe LMR to form the present day Crewe Cricket Club as the cricket section of Crewe Vagrants which by then had also encompassed Crewe Vagrants Squash and Hockey.

Since then the cricket team have enjoyed success in the Noth Staffs South Cheshire league, the club being founder members.  Other past successes include the Cheshire Cup, the Midland Bank Sunday League and Crewe & District Mid week league.

John Morris, of England, Derbyshire, and Durham was a product of the Crewe CC youth development, which has also spawned youth Cheshire, the North West and England representatives.  The clubs special FOCUS status allows the club to achieve untold success in the introduction and development of youth cricket, a policy to which the club is devoted.
