Former Young & Co pub at 340 London Road, Mitcham, CR4 3ND.

The original pub was damaged by a bomb during world war 2, and was replaced by a new building in 1958.



This building was demolished in May, 2017. Youngs had sold the pub in December 2009 for £460,000 to CHATSWORTH LAND LIMITED (Co. Regn. No. 6046241) of 20 Hale Lane, London NW7 3PN. It was subsequently sold in November 2015 for £900,000 to CRICKETERS GREEN LIMITED (incorporated in Jersey) of 4th Floor St Paul’s Gate, 22-24 New Street, St Helier, Jersey, JE1 4TR.

In 1968, Mr & Mrs Charles Cromack are mentioned as licensees in an article about the unveiling of a cricket mural in the pub. Charlie Cromack was still the landlord in 1982, as pointed out by a Facebook user, see comments below.

Another comment on the Mitcham History Facebook Group said that Charles Cromack left the pub in 1986.

The Mitcham News & Mercury did a series of articles on local pubs in 1973, including the Cricketers.
