Coulsdon Cricket Club
Coulsdon Cricket Club was based at Coulsdon, Surrey, and was briefly a top-class team. The club is believed to have been formed in the early 1760s and it had for a time a great rivalry with Chertsey Cricket Club.
Coulsdon is first recorded as a cricket team on Monday 8 May 1769 when a combined Coulsdon and Caterham team played All-England at Smitham Bottom in nearby Croydon. The result is unknown. The club's last known match in 1784 was against Chertsey at Laleham Burway and they lost that by 313 runs. In most of Coulsdon's matches, the result is unknown, but the team did defeat Sussex in 1775.
One of the club's most notable players was William Palmer.
