The Harrow Wanderers was founded as an invitation northern touring cricket club by ID Walker in 1870. It was reinvented after the First World War as a wandering cricket club. Membership is open to all Old Harrovians that are interested in cricket. Fred Woolley is the current President, Robert Nelson the Chairman and Simon Maydon the Fixture Secretary.
There are formal dinners on an occasional basis and members customarily meet in the Allen Stand at Lord's for the School match against Eton which this year is on 25th June. All members are entitled to wear the Club colours (alternate narrow yellow and white stripes on a Harrow blue background) and have membership of the Field House Club.
The club play a number of matches each summer against a variety of clubs, in addition to the annual Northern Tour to Yorkshire. In recent years overseas tours have also been arranged to Australia, South Africa and Sri Lanka. A select side plays each year in the Cricketer Cup Competition; in 2012 the Club reached the final for the fifth time since the tournament’s inception in 1967, losing narrowly to Shrewsbury. The Club plays against the School on the Sixth Form Ground on Speech Day and in the Goose Match.
FIXTURES - The fixture card for 2016 will be avaliable soon.
PLAYING KIT - Members are encouraged to wear club colours when playing for the Club. A new contract with “Serious Cricket” to supply the club’s playing, training and leisure clothing has been agreed. Their website is www.seriouscricket.co.uk - They have an online store which is very easy to use (see attached flyer) - just log on, register your account, choose what you want to purchase and it arrives 5-7 days later. There is a new logo for shirts and caps and we hope all players representing the club will wear the official clothing.
