Irene Villagers Cricket Club (IVCC)
The highly successful club has grown to be a powerhouse within the Premier League and boasts a membership of over one hundred players and six teams participating in the Northerns Cricket Union senior league set-up. It has one ladies’ side and has over one hundred junior members competing in the five junior leagues of the NCU. Irene Villagers also fields a social side (The Barbets) which is mainly made up of retired cricketers who, together with a well-structured supporters club (Godfathers) assist the club financially and spiritually.
The Villagers home venues are the Irene Country Club, Irene Village Oval in the heart of Irene proper, neighbouring Southdowns College and Cornwall Hill College.
The Club has flourished over the years with the 1st team finishing runner-up in the NCU top Premier league (2013/2014 season and has a very successful development plan with excellent coaching facilities and programme for young and up-coming cricketers.
The cricket section is now almost totally self-sufficient and the hard-working committee and dedicated members have really achieved a lot over the past twenty years or so. The club facilities have been up-graded and improved almost beyond recognition and these efforts have been rewarded in our Club Chairman, Wally van Heerden being granted honorary life-membership of Irene Country Club.
This burgeoning club with its vibrant junior academy provides a much needed facility within the local community and richly deserves all the support and assistance it can get to allow for growth and expansion in the years to come.
