History[edit]

Chilaw Marians Cricket Club was founded in 1975 under the guidance of Rev. Brother Edwin Ambross who at the time was the Principal of St May’s College, Chilaw, together with a group of cricket loving enthusiasts, namely Shanthi Seneviratne, Edward Gamini, Dinesh Fernando, Rohan Fernandopulle and Bertram Navaratne.

Starting at the lowest divisions of club cricket in the 1980s, Chilaw Marians CC progressed through the ranks to reach BCCSL Division III.

In the mid-1990s under the leadership of Edwin Fernando and Godfrey Dabrera, the committee formulated plans to take the club to the next level of club cricket - BCCSL Division II. In 1998 Chilaw Marians was able to secure their first major title, becoming BCCSL Under 23 Division II Champions.

Encouraged and energized by this achievement, the club set it’s sight on the pinnacle of 1st class cricket in Sri Lanka – Division I. In the year 2000 Chilaw Marian won the Premier Division I Qualifying Championship and was promoted to the highest level of club cricket in Sri Lanka.
