About the Tigers
Claremont Cricket Club
Bruce Thomson's early histories of the Club (1929 and 1948) state unequivocally the Claremont Cricket
Club was founded in 1896, the first annual meeting being held under a gum tree in Claremont Park.
Claremont first played in the WA Junior Cricket Association on matting where they had great success
winning premierships in consecutive years. In 1902 the Senior Matting Association was formed and,
between that year and 1908 when Claremont first appeared in turf cricket, the Club won the premiership
Claremont-Cottesloe Cricket Club
1898-99 to 1905-06 (8 seasons) - came from the Matting Association to WACA and then returned to
1908-09 to 1941-42, 1945-46 to 1947-48 (41 seasons)
Cottesloe existed from 1925 to 1948
During the War - 1942-43 to 1944-45 Claremont and Fremantle combined as one club to participate in a one
day competition for three seasons.
From 1948-49 to 1988-89 Claremont reverted to Claremont-Cottesloe (41 seasons)
Was founded in 1928 when numerous players cleared the grounds at Melvista Oval. The Club played
two teams in lower grades until they were afforded First Grade status in 1942-43.
Claremont-Nedlands Cricket Club (1989-90 to today)
Claremont-Cottesloe and Nedlands amalgamated at the beginning of the 1989-90 season.
This brought instant success with the First Grade team winning the premiership and the Club winning
the coveted Club Championship. The First Grade team was also runners up the 90/91 season.
In 1996 Claremont-Nedlands celebrated a Centenary with a match between former CCCC players against
former NCC players at Cresswell Park and a dinner at Challenge Stadium.
In 2005/2006 brought another 1 st Grade Premiership and Club Championships in 2012/13 &
In recent years the Club has had great success winning One Day Competition four
years in a row from 2015/ 2016 until 2018/2019 while also winning The First Grade Premiership
in 2017/2018 & 2018/2019.
This period has been one-off, if not the most successful periods in the Clubs history. The majority of the First Grade
players of this period have come through the CNCC Junior program.
"Oh we're from Tigerland
A fighting fury we're from Tigerland
In any weather you will see us with a grin
Risking head and skin
If we're behind
We'll never mind
We'll fight and fight and win
Oh we're from tigerland
We never weaken til the final wicket falls
Like the tigers of old
We're strong and we're bold
Oh we're from tigerland
- YELLOW AND BLUE -
Oh we're from tigerland"
