    Gloucestershire County Cricket Club

    by grayfo Written Feb 28, 2012

    Gloucestershire are one of the eighteen county clubs that make up the English and Welsh structure. WG Grace was a famous cricketer born in 1848 and it was his father, Dr Henry Mills Grace who was responsible for the early days of GCCC when he founded Mangotsfield Cricket club. This club later merged with Coalpit Heath CC to become West Gloucestershire CC. He eventually achieved his ambition on 2nd June 1870 when Gloucestershire CCC played their first County match against Surrey on Durdham Downs. WG played and led Gloucestershire to victory by 51 runs.

    Gloucestershire play the majority of their home games at the Club's headquarters in Bristol, but for 2 weeks in July and August the Club play the most successful festival in the world in Cheltenham. Initially known as Ashley Down Ground, the Bristol venue was bought in 1889 by W. G. Grace and has been home to Gloucestershire ever since.
