Winsford Cricket Club
It is thought that here has been a Cricket Club in Winsford since before World War 1 where it was originally located in the Vicarage Grounds.
In 1979 the old cricket pavilion was relocated to its new home in Howetown Lane where it was then replaced in 1992.
It has been a focal point in the village and the surrounding community, hosting many matches one of which was the Johnson Family versus Winsford in 2010 to celebrate the 70th birthday of Stanley Johnson. It is made up of a friendly group of cricket enthusiasts, playing local fixtures throughout the season.
The club had been promoted after the 2019 season into the West Somerset League's Division 2.
Play started in May with a narrow loss to Churchinford. The next two games were rained off, and thing didn't get any better for a while with Winsford losing 7 out of their first 8 matches, although two were extremely close. Relegation back to Division 3 was a definite possibility.
Come July though, after losing the reverse fixture to Churchinford, Winsford won 6 out of their last 7 matches with some outstanding performances, losing only to runaway league winners Stoke St Mary. There were many outstanding performances in this run, with Dan Bowley's 5-36 against East Huntspill and Tom Wyatt's 109* against Wiviliscombe possibly the picks.
The run was enough to raise Winsford to seventh place in the division, a very creditable performance.
