Colne Cricket Club
Colne Cricket Club is a local cricket Club who are in the Lancashire League. 
Colne's professional for the 2000 season is Ben Johnson, he plays for South Australia and is an all-round player.
In 1996 Ben broke all Lancashire Cricket League batting records scoring 1,718 runs in one season. 
Colne may be a small town but has a strong team in all areas. Which they proved by defeating East Lancashire in the Worsley cup final. 
Colne's ground is a good ground with plenty of seating. It is looked after by the grounds man Clark

Our hundred and first friends
are certainly not lambs for the opposition!
Potterne Cricket Club
Potterne Cricket Club was formed, as part of Potterne Sports Club, in 1936. 
But they had been in existence for longer than that. 
Records of a match against Devizes in 1843 bear testament to the fact. 
Few records exist of cricketing activities throughout the 19th Century, but an ignominious record was achieved early in the 20th. 
During a match in 1907 Potterne were bowled out for the score of 0, a feat that hopefully will never be repeated! 
At the outbreak of the Second World War, when the Club ceased to function. 
In 1947 interest in cricket was sufficient to enable the Club to start playing cricket again. 
Now, at the age of 64, the club is as successful as ever. The First XI are playing in the top division of the Wiltshire League, England,  
for the first time, and the second XI continues to thrive. And with plenty of youngsters coming through the ranks, the future looks rosy.

The Greys Cricket Club
The Greys Cricket Club was founded in 1987 from the regulars of the Greys Public House in Southover Street, Brighton. 
What they lack in ability they endeavour to make up for in enthusiasm - and they're not adverse to a bit of puerile chat over the odd pint of foaming ale 
(hence their motto - Beer and Banter)

Horsham Cricket Club Colts
Excerpt from the club's page (Sussex-England)
No one could say that 2000 has been a vintage season in terms of success for the club, 
yet every team (except for the under 9's and under 10's who had no such competition or league) reached a final 
and the Under 14's, Under 12's and Under 11's won their respective league finals by a distance. 
It was therefore a year of solid achievement that demonstrated strength in depth ...
