Upminster Cricket Club
• UCC was formed in 1858 (160 years ago!) making it one of the
  oldest in the area
• Moved to it’s current home in Upminster Park in early 1920s
• Club struggled in the 1980s, and it wasn’t until 1993 when a colts
  section was started again by John Sutton that membership
  numbers improved
• Today, we are one of the largest clubs in Essex
      •     6 senior sides in the Essex League
      •     About 170 colt members playing 60 matches each season
