Admin HistoryThe Hofmeister Cricket League, according to the Chairman's report at the AGM, was formed in 1982, in order to bring together clubs based in a country location on a "friendly but competitive basis". In 1985 this became the Country Cricket League with a variety of sponsors over the years. Information provided by the current secretary (2012), Andy Russell states that in 1995 the Gloucestershire County Cricket League was formed from the merger of the top two or three divisions of the Cheltenham & Gloucester League (name taken from their sponsor, C&G Building Society, but also of some geographical significance) and the Country [Cricket] League, which had been formed in 1985. This latter league brought together small village clubs playing to over rather than time limits which they had previously done. The C&G League had a more urban and suburban basis and had changed to the overs league style in about the 1970s. There is some overlap in the records of the Gloucestershire County Cricket League and the Country League as the merger took place over the 1995 and 1996 seasons. (This is confirmed by the1995 editions of the Country Cricket League and County League handbooks shows two distinct organisations with different committee members). The lower divisions of the C&G League continued, reducing in numbers until their absorption into the County League in 2007.
