APCC - 125 not out

The Club

The cricket club are running four league teams and one friendly team on Saturdays. We also play Sunday cricket both Chess Vale League and friendlies. Our first XI currently play in the first division of the Middlesex Championship League.

At the club, we are proud that, we are able to regularly field four league teams on a Saturday, this does allow us to provide the opportunity for players with various levels of skill to enjoy competitive cricket. It also means, we have a good social atmosphere including players from all the sides. We also have an ever expanding colts section including U9, U11, U13 & U15 participating in Middlesex Colts Association League cricket.

We have one of the longest running club tours in existence, with consecutive tours to Kent dating back to 1921.

 

APCC Founder, E. A. Cawdron

Ernest Albert Cawdron was joint founder of Alexandra Park Cricket Club in 1888.

He was 1st XI Captain of Alexandra Park CC from 1888 to 1928. A good medium-pace bowler, he took stacks of wickets during his long career notably in 1910 when taking 5 wickets for 2 runs as Dulwich Hamlet were dismissed for 6 runs. At the close of the 1928 season, anno domini and business interests caused him to retire from active participation. Deeply attached to APCC he named his first-born Alexandra Patricia Constance to reflect the Club’s initials. From 1933 to 1957 he was President of Alexandra Park Cricket & Lawn Tennis Club, of which he was elected the first Honorary Life Member in 1948.

Off the cricket field, he was elected a Middlesex County Councillor from 1911 to 1939, made a Justice of the Peace in 1933, and appointed Middlesex County Alderman in 1940. He was appointed the Middlesex County Council representative on the Board of Trustees of the Alexandra Park & Palace Trust, of which he became successively vice-chairman and in 1927 the chairman.

Ernest Cawdron died in 1957, at the age of 79.

The Cawdron Fielding Award was donated to AP Cricket Club by Michael and Ernie Cawdron as a tribute to the memory of their father. At the close of each season, the cricket committee decide whom among all the Club’s players demonstrated the most consistently outstanding fielding performances during the season. That player is presented with the Award during the Club’s Annual End-of-Season Dinner.
