Club history[edit]

The early years[edit]

Success since 2006[edit]

The 2006 season saw the return of former players Ian Green, Tim Sims and Richard Stokes. Alongside the team that missed out on promotion on the last day of the previous season, the team now became a dominant force in league cricket under the captaincy of Tim Sims. The club attained back to back promotions and remained unbeaten for well over a year - a total of 24 games (19 wins, 5 N/R), which remains a club record.

In 2009, due to a league restructure, Caister joined division one of the Lucas Fettes & Partners Norfolk Cricket League for the first time in it's history - finishing a very creditable 4th place in the process.

In 2007 the club entered the Mid Norfolk Sunday league and cup competitions and immediately became successful - winning the Broke Cup and coming runners up in the Challange Cup the following year. Caister won the Kevin Grimmer Division four title in 2009, finishing the season unbeaten.

The last few years have seen the club lose a number of key players who have moved abroad, most notably Simon Kerrison (Australia), Keith Brown Jnr (Poland) and Chris Bartram (USA).
