Octopus - The True Story


The Club was formed in 1947 from a social club set up by Arthur Peachey at the end of the Second World War which met regularly at the Celbic Hall in Lancaster Road ,Enfield Town. It was a suggestion of Ralph Alsford, P.A. "Jack" Younie and Arthur Peachey, who were great lovers of cricket.


The "Octopus" got its name as the Social Club at Celbic Hall played eight different sports.


Although the Club (originally just known as "The Octopus Club") had years where it has been unbeaten with wonderful cricket being played, as a general rule, very rarely has the Club ever been "outplayed" in the bar after the game."
