The origin of the Old Freemen’s Cricket Club is shrouded in mystery. It started life slowly soon after the parent school, The City of London Freemen’s School (CLFS), moved out from Brixton to the impressive setting of Ashtead Park in Surrey in 1926. Initially part of “The City Freemen’s Old Scholars’ Association” by 1931 the Club had a named Captain (Williams) and “The Ashteadian”, the School magazine, records at least two games in that season! Certainly by 1934 records also show that there was a full fixture list.
Headley Old Freemen’s Cricket Club formed by the amalgamation of both Headley Cricket Club and Old Freemen’s Cricket Club in 2002.
Both Grounds are exceptional with both having unique qualities I will leave you to visit both grounds to make your own minds up!!
