Cowbridge 1st XI 1993

Formed in January 1913, the Cowbridge & District Athletic Club's original sporting sections were Cricket, Tennis, Croquet, Football and Quoits. This early receipt for Croquet membership shows a subscription priced at ten shillings and sixpence (fifty two and a half pence in today's money). Adjusted for inflation, the subscription equates to around £45 today

This meeting was called less than three months after the first cricket match had been played between Harry Ebsworth's XI and the Rev'd Owen Jones's XI at what is now the Athletic Ground. The date of that first match was 27th May 1896.
