We are a thriving village cricket club in the centre of Wiltshire. We have existed for 77 years and pride ourselves on being a very friendly sociable place to play cricket.
We currently run 4 Senior Saturday XI's - the 1st XI play in the Premier Two of the West of England Premier League and our 2nd XI play in the Glos/Wilts 2nd XI League. Our 3rd and 4th X1's play in the Wiltshire Cricket League.
We also have a thriving Youth section with sides at U15, U13, U11 and U9 level, as well as two sides for girls at U11 and U15 levels. All of our coaching staff have been CRB checked and we have three UKCC3, four UKCC Club Coaches,eight UKCC2 and twelve UKCC Level 1 coaches helping to run our Youth section. We also possess, as a Club, the 'ECB Clubmark' award - a sign that our club has been audited, inspected and approved as a safe, child-friendly and effective place to learn the game of cricket. We are also one of 18 ECB Focus Clubs in the County - an acknowledgement that we are helping the Cricket Board deliver excellence in cricket coaching and provision of opportunity for junior cricketers.
If you are interested in being involved at our Club in any way - as a player, parent, junior member or sponsor, please get in touch - you would be made very welcome. Please either contact the relevant person from the 'Contacts' section of this site or just e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
We look forward to hearing from you!

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:

In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
