Old Suttonian Cricket

Cricket has been played at the School since 1840. Since then, it has been an important means of connection for Old Suttonians and the School. The Upper, the home of OS Cricket, offers hospitality second to none and is often regarded as one of the most picturesque settings to play the game in the county. Through the excellent facilities and the camaraderie the game offers, we are delighted that the sport continues to offer such attraction to Old Suttonian players. With a range of fixtures during the summer months, please get involved and continue the rich history of OS Cricket.

 

A HISTORY OF OS CRICKET

Cricket remains the longest-standing of all Old Suttonian sports, with the OS versus School match dating as far back as the early 1870s. Traditionally hosted on Upper during May or June, the fixture now sees the two teams compete for the Bunker Cup, awarded in honour of the late David Bunker (1954 M). At the turn of the Twentieth Century, early OS teams began to increase their fixture list by regularly arranging tours to face alumni teams in other counties. That was very much the precursor to the ever-popular OS Cricket Week, which has been in existence since 1923. Played annually ever since (excluding the war years) the week allows Old Suttonians to play fixtures against a number of local teams and alumni associations.
