  • Gloucestershire County Cricket Club is one of eighteen first-class county clubs within the domestic cricket structure of England and Wales. It represents the historic county of Gloucestershire. There is uncertainty about the exact date of the club's foundation, due to a merger with another club, but 1870 is generally accepted. The club played its first major match in June of that year. It was founded by the Grace family and W. G. was its first team captain. With that association, Gloucestershire has had major status since inception: i.e., classified as an unofficial first-class team by substantial sources from 1870 to 1894; classified as an official first-class team from 1895 by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and the County Championship clubs; classified as a List A team since the beginning of limited overs cricket in 1963; and classified as a major Twenty20 team since 2003. The club plays its home games at its headquarters, the Bristol County Ground, in the Bishopston area of north Bristol. Each season a number of games are also played at the Cheltenham cricket festival held at the College Ground, Cheltenham. In recent years, matches have also been played at the Gloucester cricket festival at The King's School, Gloucester. Gloucestershire CCC is best known as the county of W. G. Grace, whose father founded the club, and Wally Hammond, who scored 113 hundreds for the county. The club has had two notable periods of success: first, in the 1870s when it was unofficially acclaimed as the Champion County on at least three occasions; more recently, from 1999 to 2006 during which it won seven major limited overs trophies, winning a "double double" in 1999 and 2000 (both the Benson and Hedges Cup and the C&G Trophy, in both seasons), while also winning the Sunday League in 2000. The club's traditional badge is the coat of arms of the City of Bristol, the club's home since being founded in 1870. (en)
