Founded in 2006, the Burleigh Cricket Club is one of the newest clubs to the Cricket Gold Coast competition.
After starting some limited success in lower grades at the conclusion of the 2011/12 season Burleigh were crowned 2nd Grade Premiers and was invited to participate in the Cricket Gold Coast's 1st Grade competition the following season, which sees the best eleven clubs from across the Gold Coast region compete for the Kookaburra Cup.
The 2017/18 season was a landmark in the club’s history with 1st Grade, 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade all qualifying for finals cricket with 1st Grade achieving the ultimate and winning the coveted Kookaburra Cup for the first time in the club’s history thus completing a meteoric rise for the club since its humble beginnings twelve seasons earlier.
Last season the club continued to field teams across our senior and junior teams with 54 Senior Players, 16 Masters and 128 Junior Players registered with our 1st Grade taking their premiership defence to the semi- finals before unfortunately going down to the eventual premiers, our Masters reaching the Grand Final of Division 2 and our U14’s reaching the Grand Final of the U14 competition.
Burleigh Cricket Club has had a long association with hosting overseas players with First Class players from the UK, PNG and Sri Lanka all having represented the club.
The club will be looking for continual improvement both on and off the field into the 2019/20 season.
