WELCOME TO WILLEY WANDERERS CRICKET CLUB
“Hi there, and welcome to Willey Wanderers Cricket Club! Over 100 years old now, W.W.C.C. epitomises all there is about grass roots village club cricket. Originally formed by the local Lord of the Manor in the late 19th century and playing on the lawns in front of Willey Hall, with the team probably made up mainly of estate workers, the local Vicar and Blacksmith and Captained by the Lord himself, W.W.C.C. has progressed over the years through decades of “friendly” cricket to the league cricket of the last 35 years or so. Indeed, as with most village sides, W.W.C.C. were participating in 20/20 cricket in the guise of local K.O. competitions 50 years before its “invention” by the professional game. The great shame is that so many clubs whose names appear on trophies from years gone by, have now gone out of existence, but W.W.C.C. has survived.
In 1922, W.W.C.C. moved to its present picturesque and secretive location in the tiny hamlet of Barrow, part way between the historic towns of Broseley and Much Wenlock in sleepy Mid Shropshire. Follow us on our website, or better still visit us in person someday. Believe me, on a warm summers day and with a game of cricket in progress, there is no finer place to be.”
