    Company Description

    When a group of Middlesex gents came together in the London Tavern in 1864, few could’ve predicted what the next 153 years would hold. We now know it all started with a win. Vyell Edward Walker stole the show, leading the newly constituted Middlesex County Cricket Club to a glorious victory over Sussex County on 7 June 1864; with an impressive margin of one innings and 52 runs. By 1877 the club has taken permanent place at Lord’s – the only team to ever have the honour of calling ‘the Home of Cricket’​, home. As the years elapsed, 21 championship titles were collected – including two NatWest trophies, a Division Two Championship, the Benson & Hedges Cup, two Gillette Cups and the 2008 Twenty20 Cup. With a long and proud history in the County Championship, Middlesex has developed many of the world’s greatest cricketers including Dennis Comption, Mike Gatting, John Emburey and Andrew Strauss. The tradition continues today with a new crop of the game’s best and brightest, like Eoin Morgan, Steven Finn, Fran Wilson and Dawid Malan. Not a bad innings so far, here’s to the next 150 years
