Radyr Cricket Club

Second Ground back in action

Last night was a special night for the club as the second ground hosted its first game since the flood completely destroyed the surface in February of 2020. The Under 11s were hosting our friends from Miskin Manor CC. The photograph shows the team with their coaches Steve Sanders and Nick Cook, prior to the start of the game

Radyr Chain Competition Winners

Last night during the interval of the Under 11s game on the second ground, the first game since it was completely relaid due to flood damage, the club’s Radyr Chain Christmas Competition winners were awarded their prizes. The two were Mollie Richards and Lydia Bell and they can be seen receiving their prize’s, respectively from Huw Jones, Chair of the Radyr & Morganstown Community Council and Councillor Rod McKerlich, the current Lord Mayor of Cardiff, who were on a visit to the club. Incidentally the two girls had just opened the batting for Radyr CC and show the club’s continuing support for girls/ladies cricket

Completed Players patio

Two photographs showing the newly completed players patio from inside and outside the recently erected fencing. They also show the door to the pavilion extension which is nearing final completion. Fingers crossed for some nice weather and cricket.

The first opportunity to see the almost completed players patio. This is one of the last pieces of external work being carried out as part of the pavilion extension.


Extension update

The final section of the exterior part of the extension project started earlier this week. Incorporating a new players patio and the second phase of the fencing, it should bring a new look to watching cricket at Radyr CC.


Radyr CC are delighted to confirm that the proposed game against the MCC, the world’s most famous cricket club, will take place on Friday July 23rd, 2021 at the riverside ground. The format of the game and the start time will be confirmed shortly. This will be the fourth occasion that the club will play the side based at Lord’s cricket ground, and replaces last season’s game which was cancelled due to the Covid restrictions. The club are delighted with this news and it shows the desire to provide a quality fixture list for its members throughout the season.

RCC & the University of South Wales CC


Since the latter part of last year the club has been in discussions with the University of South Wales CC (USW) regarding the formation of a partnership. These discussions have involved members of the Management Board, playing members and the club captain, along with representatives of USW, and I’m pleased to confirm that agreement has now been reached.

What this will mean is that USW will use the RCC ground for their home fixtures. They have both a men’s and a women’s section and the games will be played on Wednesday afternoons. The partnership will mean more income for the club, greater bar takings and the name of RCC being spread farther and wider. The fixtures of USW will eventually be placed on the website and if received earlier enough within the 2021 Fixture Card.

Can I thank the club members involved in the discussions for their help and positivity, as well as those who initially gave council of previous experiences: their insight was vital. This is another great step for the club and ties us in with the second largest educational organisation in the south east Wales area. They have the reputation of being the dynamic, go ahead kid on the block, which is probably why this fit feels so right.
