Isle Of Man Cricket Association
In a year when Florrie Forde was at the Derby Castle, when a Ben Travis Farce was on 
at the Grand Theatre, Victoria Street and Jack Kerr and the Ambassadors 
were playing at the Palals de Danse; a group of cricketers decided that it was high time
that an Isle of Man Cricket Club (IOM CC) should be formed to play representative games and govern the sport in the Island. 
The year was of course 1930.
Cricket has been played on this island for well over 100 years and in 1930 teams such as
Castletown, Cronkbourne, Fencibles and Ramsey were already well established 
and playing against teams from the Douglas High School Old Boys, Laxey, Peel and Bishop Wilson s Theological College.

Neath Guardian Cricket League
Stephen Jones, Secretary
The League was formed in 1979 by seven South Wales Cricket Association Clubs in the Neath area. 
Its main objective was to foster the involvement of younger Club Cricketers in competitive mid week Cricket on good wickets.
Since 1979 there have been many changes to the composition of the League as Clubs have joined, 
relinquished membership or rejoined, and membership has been extended beyond the immediate Neath area. 
The basic core membership has remained, however, and they now pride themselves as one of the foremost mid week 
Cricket Leagues in the South Wales Area.
The League presently comprises 10 Clubs and there is a waiting list for membership.
