Newham Cricket Club is a newly formed cricket club situated in the heart of the East End of London. Our home ground is Flanders field in East Ham, where the likes of Graham Gooch, Nasser Hussain and Ravi Bopara have graced, not to mention the legend that is Bobby Moore. Indeed, we are situated in an area of London, rich in cricketing talent and our potential as a cricket club is huge. The club was established in 2005 and reformed in 2008 after becoming moribund.
We are a non-for profit community sports club and our purpose is to offer local people the opportunity to participate in regular sporting activity through cricket. Indeed, we are the only youth cricket club in Newham.
Our club is open to all regardless of age, disability, race, sexual orientation, religious belief, ability and gender and we are currently recruiting young boys aged between 8 and 16 to compete in Essex Metropolitan Board cups. In fact, we not only recruit young people but their parents as well and we are always on the look out for new social members to join and volunteers to help with the day to day running of the club. Additionally, we are recruiting adults over the age of 16 to represent our senior men's 1st X1 and young females aged between 8 and 16 for our brand new junior female section. In the very near future, we will be starting a disability programme with the help of the charity, Cricket for Change. Please keep checking the web site for more details.

To highlight our ambition, within the next six months we hope to achieve Clubmark status by working in conjunction with the Essex Cricket Board. Clubmark is an ECB accreditation process, which recognizes the fact that young people and children can enjoy sport in a safe and fun environment offering parents the knowledge that their children are in safe hands.|
