Why does Streatham Cricket appear as a page on the St Peter's Church Website?
A member of our congregation - Colin Hutton- has published a book Streatham and the Summer Game chronicling the history of Cricket in Streatham 1731-2010 and the Streatham Cricket Club.
St Peter's is proud to have been very much involved in the formative years of the Streatham Cricket Club (now Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club) - with many players coming from the congregation of St Peter's.
St Peter's has also had its own team at various stages and local clergy, including those from St Peter's have played in local teams..
The book contains not only a history of Streatham Cricket, but an interesting social history of this part of South London - viewed from a new perspective.
The book costs £15, plus £1.25 postage and packing, and is available from The Streatham Society, 3 Rowan Crescent, Streatham, London SW16 5JA. Cheques should be made payable to THE STREATHAM SOCIETY.
