Casareans Cricket Club

Brief history of Caesareans CC

Caesareans CC was formed in early 1929 and it is fitting that it was in its eightieth year at the time of the merger with Farmers CC. It has been an important influence in Jersey Cricket ensuring that cricket continued to be played throughout the Second World War and German occupation. League cricket began on Thursday afternoons which was facilitated by half day closing on the Island. In the early 1970s the League format was transferred to weekend cricket which developed successfully into a reserve section or Sunday League competition. Cs won both of the Leagues on numerous occasions and certainly had more than their fair share of success relative to other league sides. History about the Club is limited but names such as Philip Le Cras (ex-Captain and President in the 1950s), Les Honey (another ex-President), the late Harry Hall (ex-Captain and President) and Ray Pearce (held every Officer role in the Club from 1962 to date) are all names which would appear in a Hall of Fame.
