Very sad news about Charlie Randall
It was with great sadness that I have to report the dreadful news that Charlie Randall died after falling ill with pneumonia. Charlie was a playing member of the Stoics for many years and since he stopped playing he has been a member of the committee, In recent year he has been the club's secretary. He will be greatly missed. Our condolences go to Kate, Simon and the family.

Stoics Cricket Club

Welcome to Stoics CC



The Stoics CC was founded in 1877 as a wandering club which only play midweek cricket , mostly against the strongest clubs in the London and the Home Counties.

The name is derived from the school of philosophy founded on the teachings of Zeno of Citium, (333 BC - 264 BC).

Stoicism teaches that self-control, fortitude and detachment from distracting emotions, sometimes interpreted as an indifference to pleasure or pain, allows one to become a clear thinker, level-headed and unbiased. A primary aspect of Stoicism would be described as improving the individual’s spiritual well-being.

The ethos of Zeno is still to be found in club members, some of whom have played test cricket, the latest, being Tom Westley, Trevor Gripper (Zimbabwe), Adam Gilchrist (Australia), Danny Morrison (New Zealand), Aamir Sohail (Pakistan), and Raman Subba Row CBE.

However members of lesser note still distinguish themselves and the club by their competitive spirits,  individualistic natures and simply their love of cricket. No-one epitomised this more than our President for many years, Gerald Plumbly.

Whilst the Stoics are proud of being a very 'English' club into which members have to be elected, we are not a pretentious club, welcoming all those who share our passion, love of the game and it's spirit. 

Stoics C.C. is famous for creating the Law of Declaration explained in the Club History section and prides itself upon it's high standard of competitive cricket, fixtures and sociability.  

We are always looking for new members, so if you wish to play for us, or against us please contact us through the site.

Lastly, please join this site and complete the availability section, if you are a current players, so that we can use the site for selection and administration.

Chris Heron on behalf of the Committee
