They won a double-double, in the 1999 and 2000 seasons, when they lifted both the C&G Trophy and the Benson and Hedges Cup.

A moment of intense concentration broken by sudden excitement
The club’s home is at the Bristol County Ground, close to Gloucester Road in Bishopston. A recent redevelopment has brought the ground up to international match standard. The cricket that evolved in the Gloucester area grew out of a 16th century game called "stow ball" or "stop ball", while the earliest record of the word "cricket" being used to describe a bat-and-ball game was in 1729. Cricket is a game of tactics and patience, which engenders intense passion in its fans. There are even travel clubs set up by fans for the fans to enable supporters to journey all over the world in support of their teams. The game is an unpredictable meld of quiet concentration broken by sudden excitement. There can be intense psychological battles between the bowler and batsman as the bowler tries to deceive his opponent as to how the ball is to be bowled.
