Disability cricket at South Loughton

South Loughton CC was one of the pioneers of disability cricket in Essex.

We have coached at Oak View School in Loughton, for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities; hosted inter-school matches; and created opportunities for people with disabilities to play and be coached within the club's mainstream adult and junior sections.

In addition, the Essex Disability XI has played a number of county matches at the club.



Well done captain Aleef Hossain and his squad who finished as runners-up in Div 2 and will be playing in the top division of the Herts & Essex League in 2018. The 2nd XI, ably led by Rajiv Dash, were in the promotion mix until the final week but eventually finished fourth in Div 5.


If you’re looking for a club to join as a player, coach, helper or just to socialise over a drink, you’ll be very welcome at South Loughton CC.

To find out more about what we offer and how you can get involved, contact: Dalbir Kathuria ( for juniors, and Andrew Shields ( for adults. If you have friends who want to get involved, we welcome everyone, no matter your level of experience.


Our annual league for youngsters who are new to cricket is very highly regarded by the clubs and schools who take part, and by our District Cricket Board. Here's a great gallery of pictures that show what it’s all about.

The 2017 competition proved exciting to the very end:

South Loughton 310-8 net 280, Wanstead 280-10 net 230.

A fantastic performance by our under-9s whose running between the wickets, ground fielding and throwing at the stumps all proved decisive in the final played at Woodford Wells CC on 4 September. Our boys and girls really raised their game when it mattered most, to the delight of the large crowd cheering them on. 

Massive congratulations to Dalbir Kathuria and Jatinder Bedi for their superb coaching and to all parents for giving such sterling support throughout the season - this success is your reward as well as the players'! 


We're thrilled to announce that our groundsman and all-round legend Fred Rust has been awarded a 2016 ECB Outstanding Services to Cricket Award. Fred attended a lunch at the County Ground, Chelmsford, where he was presented with his award in the 'Get the Game On' category - which is what he does, every week! 

Fred's success follows Rob Glendinning's similar award in 2015 in the 'Heartbeat of the Club' category. 

We always strive to recognise the huge amounts of work put into the club by our dedicated volunteers, and it's fantastic when they are nominated for county and national awards as well.


Our celebration year ended with a dinner for more than 120 guests at Leyton Orient FC, with South Loughton CC vice-president Barry Hearn as guest speaker. View photos of the evening

Welcome to South Loughton CC. We consider ourselves one of the most progressive medium-sized clubs in Essex. We are a registered Community Amateur Sports Club and ECB Focus Club, and were one of the first clubs in England to gain Clubmark accreditation. In 2013 we celebrated our 75th anniversary.

Our mission statement

'Our aim is to provide club members with coaching and matchplay of the highest possible quality, to build strong links with schools, disability groups, other sports clubs and the local community, and to create an environment in which everyone is encouraged to develop their skills and interests.’

About us

Founded in 1938, we field two Saturday XIs in the Herts & Essex League.

The 1st XI were Division 1 champions in 2007 and runners-up in 2009. In 2017 we are playing in Division 2 and targeting a return to the top division. The 2nd XI are playing in Division 5 in 2017.

Unlike many local clubs, we continue to play Sunday friendly cricket. We have an established fixture list for those who don't wish to play Saturday league cricket and to give our younger players a constructive and enjoyable introduction to senior cricket. Previously our Sunday 1st XI won the Middlesex & Essex League title in 2013, having been runners-up for the three seasons before.

We also work in partnership with Mathews CC, enabling us to run a Saturday 3rd XI in which the emphasis is on social cricket and the development of young players.

Junior cricket

We have a very popular and successful junior section, offering high-quality coaching and matchplay for children aged 5 to 15.

We have a committed team of ECB-qualified and insured coaches who, along with our managers and volunteer helpers, hold enhanced DBS disclosures.

Our under-9, 10, 11 and 13 teams have all won Metropolitan Essex District Cricket Board competitions within the last five years, and we have currently have 11 boys and girls representing Essex and London age-group teams. 

We have particularly strong and enthusiastic under-9 and under-11 sections, playing both soft-ball and hard-ball cricket to enable players of all standards to learn the basics of the game, get involved and have fun.

In May 2005 we were chosen by the ECB to deliver a FUNdamentals programme for six- to nine-year-olds. This proved extremely successful and we still run a hugely popular and highly respected FUNdamentals League for this age group each summer.

We are also part of the ECB's new 'All Stars' programme which offers a fun and energetic eight-week introduction to the game for children aged five to eight.

In March 2003 we became only the 12th club in England to gain Sport England's prestigious 'Clubmark' accreditation. We were re-accredited in 2007, 2010 and 2013 and are working with our County Board on further re-accreditation in 2017. This demonstrates that we are 'a safe, effective and child-friendly sports club'.

We are very proud of our achievements, our commitment to community sports development, and the happy and constructive atmosphere at our club. We hope to welcome you along!
