Formation and history

SCCC were born on the evening of 22 August 1845 at the Horns Tavern in South London, where around 100 representatives of various cricket clubs in Surrey agreed a motion put by William Denison (SCCC's first Secretary) "that a Surrey club be now formed". A further meeting at the Tavern on 18 October 1845 formally constituted SCCC, appointed officers and began enrolling members. A lease on Kennington Oval, a former market garden, was obtained by a Mr Houghton from the Duchy of Cornwall. Mr Houghton was of the old Montpelier club, 70 members of which formed the nucleus of the new Surrey County club.

Surrey's inaugural first-class county match against Kent was held at The Oval in June 1846. However the club did not do well that year, despite the extra public attractions at the Oval of a Walking Match and a Poultry Show. By the start of the 1847 season the club was £70 in debt and there was a motion to close. Ponsonby proposed that 6 life members be created for a fee of £12 each. His motion was duly passed, and the club survived. Kent County Cricket Club is an English county cricket club based at Canterbury, Kent. ...

In 1857, all nine matches played by the county resulted in victory. In 1864, SCCC was widely recognised as the first unofficial Champion County. SCCC were also unofficial Champion County in 1887 and 1888, and jointly in 1889, before the County Championship officially came into being in 1890. They won the official title in 1890-1892, 1894, 1895 and 1899.

The turn of the century brought a decline in Surrey's fortunes, and they won the title only once during the next fifty years, in 1914. Between the two World Wars, Surrey often had a good side, but it tended to be stronger in batting than in bowling. The Oval pitches of this period also tended to be very good for batting, so that many matches were left drawn, in spite of all the wiles of their captain for most of this period, Percy Fender. Percy George Herbert Fender (22 August 1892 - 15 June 1985) was an English all-round cricketer who played 13 Tests for England. ...


From 1948 to 1959, Surrey finished either first or second in the county championship in 10 seasons out of 12. They finished runners-up in 1948, shared the championship with Lancashire in 1950, won seven consecutive outright titles from 1952 to 1958, and were runners-up again in 1959. Their margins of victory were usually large (for example, Yorkshire were runners-up in 1952 but were 32 points behind). This success was built on a remarkably potent bowling attack, with the combative Tony Lock and Jim Laker, the finest orthodox off spinner of all time, making the most of helpful Oval tracks. It also owed a lot to the attacking captaincy of Stuart Surridge, who won the title in all five years of his leadership from 1952 to 1956, and to brilliant close catching. 1948 (MCMXLVIII) was a leap year starting on Thursday (the link is to a full 1948 calendar). ... 1959 (MCMLIX) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1948 (MCMXLVIII) was a leap year starting on Thursday (the link is to a full 1948 calendar). ... 1950 (MCML) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will take you to calendar). ... 1952 (MCMLII) was a Leap year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ... 1958 (MCMLVIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1959 (MCMLIX) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Over the next forty years, Surrey won the title only once, in 1971, but by the late 1990s, they had reasserted themselves as the strongest team in English first-class cricket, producing England international stalwarts such as Alec Stewart, Graham Thorpe and Mark Butcher. Adam Hollioake proved himself an inspiring match winning captain, and his younger brother Ben was tinged with greatness before his tragically early death in a car accident in Australia. Martin Bicknell, despite winning few Test caps, has been the outstanding seam bowler in English cricket over the past decade and Alistair Brown, remarkably without a Test cap to his name, has proved himself time and again the outstanding one day batsman of his time. This period of dominance also owed much to Keith Medlycott, who was county coach from 1997 to 2003. 1971 (MCMLXXI) was a common year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1971 calendar). ...

Surrey County Cricket Club - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1213 words)
SCCC won the county cricket championship title eight times from 1887 to 1895 (including the first ever officially constituted Championship in 1890) and a further seven consecutive outright titles from 1952 to 1958, with a joint title (with Lancashire) in 1950.
SCCC were born on the evening of 22 August 1845 at the Horns Tavern in South London, where around 100 representatives of various cricket clubs in Surrey agreed a motion put by William Denison (SCCC's first Secretary) "that a Surrey club be now formed".
SCCC were also unofficial Champion County in 1887 and 1888, and jointly in 1889, before the County Championship officially came into being in 1890.
Surrey County Cricket Club in 2005 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (8936 words)
Surrey Lions continued their miserable form in the Sunday League, as they went down to their fourth defeat in four matches to be at the very bottom of the National League table.
Surrey started slowly, moving to 18 for 1 after 15 overs of quality bowling from Pathan and Alan Richardson, but the stranglehold was eased with Richard Clinton scoring freely as he made his way to 73.
Surrey had some Pakistanis of their own, as Azhar Mahmood and Mohammad Akram took two and one wicket respectively, and Sussex scrambled to 33 for 4 at tea on day 3, chasing a meagre 125 to win.
