Old Dovorian Cricket Club

After nearly 80 years, the Old Dovorian Cricket Club (ODCC) is once again back as an independent, stand-alone OD group within the OD Community.

This has only been achieved, because a group of Old Dovorians who have a love, passion and appreciation of the glorious game of cricket have joined together to re-establish the Old Dovorian Cricket Club, so once again the OD Cricket Club team will be gracing the cricket fields of East Kent.

The playing of Old Dovorian cricket can be traced back to the 1880’s, when Old Dovorians used to put up cricket teams to play against Dover College, which continued until 2018. However It must be mentioned that in between the World Wars a annual organised cricket tour to Sussex was a regular occurrence, unfortunately after the Second World War it was found to be difficult to arrange a revival of the three Old Dovorian traditional sports clubs, with the cricket and rugby clubs in particularly struggled the most during this period, both being ultimately integrated into the OD Club
