In the 2015 season the County won the Unicorns Championship for the third time in its history after beating Oxfordshire by ten wickets in the final at Carlisle CC.
The County also runs a Development XI in conjunction with Cumbria Cricket Limited.
The squad included several players who have emerged through the Development Team including player-coach Chris Hodgson, who has joined the County Committee alongside Toby Bulcock, Michael Slack, Greg Hall, Sam Dutton and Ryan Carruthers.
The County Yearbook 2017 will be distributed to paid-up members in March 2017.
Gary Pratt will again captain the team in 2017 with Christopher Hodgson as player-coach.
In 2017 the County will stage Trophy games at Netherfield and Penrith and Championship games at Furness, Netherfield and Sedbergh School. We are grateful to all those clubs and organisations for their support.
The County welcomes members and supporters old and new and thanks all sponsors and advertisers for their support. New members are always welcome and sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting the Treasurer.
Copies of the club history, published in 2011 are still available from the Treasurer.
