Brondesbury Cricket Club was founded in 1887 and is affiliated to the MCB, CCC and NCA. 

The club is a founder member of the Middlesex County Cricket League.  Our 1st and 2nd XIs play in Division Two of the League, whilst our 3rdXI plays in Division One.  All three XIs have enjoyed success in their leagues.  The 1stXI has won the Premier League three times, in 1999, 2000 and 2003.

The 1stXI has also won the Evening Standard trophy in 1997 and 1999, and has regularly won National Cup regional finals, making it one of the most successful London clubs of the last 15 years.

The club runs four XIs on Saturdays, plus the Bron Eagles and Bron Casuals on Sundays, and trains at Lord's on Sunday evenings during the winter, from early January until the start of the season. As usual, the club will be entered into the Club Cricket Conference Cup (formerly the Evening Standard trophy), the ECB National Knockout Cup, the Middlesex Cup and the National Twenty20 Cup in 2013.

The current 1stXI squad includes John Simpson, the present Middlesex wicketkeeper/batsman.

The club has a large and strong colts section and is represented by teams in the U10, U11, U13 and U15 Middlesex leagues. There is also a Bron Academy which is designed to develop older colts into club cricketers.  Further information on our colts section can be obtained from the Colts Chairman, Peter Lowrey.
