Among many achievements over the years, the first team were Champions in 2004 and runners up in 2006 and 2008 in the Senior League.

The club is embarking on a development programme at the Ethel Road ground. With the assistance of the Leicester City Council we are planning to build a new community clubhouse on the site. This will serve other social and community activities and will include a cricket academy.
