Bucks CCC

Bucks CCC
Bucks CCC is a members’ club separate from BCB and occupies a place at the top of the Board’s Development Pathway with its Academy and First teams forming one of the routes talented cricketers may take after graduating from BCB’s Under-17 teams.

The club has no fixed home and plays its matches at various grounds across the County. As a member of the Minor Counties Cricket Association, it attracts separate funding from the ECB.

Club history
The present Club was founded in 1891 as "Bucks County Cricket Club" with the Rothschild family prominent in its formation. Family member Anthony Gustav de Rothschild even represented the club.
Buckinghamshire joined the Minor Counties Championship in 1896 - the competition's second season. BCCC declined an invitation to join the first-class County Championship in 1921 because of the lack of first-class facilities in the county at the time.

BCCC has won the Championship outright nine times, and also once shared the title. It won in 1922, 1923, 1925, 1932, 1938, 1952, 1969, 1987 and 2009. It shared the accolade in 1899 with Northamptonshire. In 2006, it won the Eastern Division, but lost in the final to Devon. Buckinghamshire has won the MCCA Knockout Trophy once since its inception in 1983 - in 1990, defeating Lincolnshire in the competitions final at Lord's. The most successful period for the county came under the captaincy of Walter Franklin, who led them to five Championships in the twenties and thirties.

The county first played List A cricket in the 1965 Gillette Cup against Middlesex. The county appeared in 32 List A matches from 1965 to 2005, winning eight and losing 24, the majority of which against first-class opponents. The county claimed a first-class scalp once, defeating Somerset in the 1987 NatWest Trophy. Buckinghamshire lost the right to play List A cricket when the Minor counties were excluded from the Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy from the 2006 season onward.
