Remnants Cricket Club

Remnants is a Cambridge-based cricket club that has played over a thousand matches since it was formed by Geoff Hales in 1980. Sadly, Geoff died in March 2020 and, while the Covid-19 pandemic prevented a delayed celebration of his contribution to the club (and to cricket and Cambridge more generally), we were eventually able to host a memorial match at Fenner's in 2022, with close to a hundred Remnants old and new in attendance.

The club has a loose connection to Cambridge University's physics and astronomy departments - the name is a quiet pun on "supernova remnant", the shell of gas left behind after a large star explodes - but has evolved to a point where its membership is reasonably representative of the town as a whole. During the summer months we have one or two friendly matches a week against pub teams, colleges, nearby villages, workplaces and the like; we also play the occasional afternoon weekend game. Players of all standards are welcome, and anyone interested in joining should contact the club secretary.

The navigation bar in the left-hand frame gives access to information on the current season, as well as the all-time records. There is also a news page, although this is typically used only for updates outside of the regular season.
