Founded in 1876, Earlswood Cricket Club is based in Watery Lane, Earlswood on the borders of Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
We run four Saturday senior teams in the Cotswold Hills League and were Champions in 2013. Our 2nd XI were promoted in 2013 up to Division 3. We began a 3rd XI in 2008 who were promoted to Division 5 in 2011. In 2014, we started a 4th XI playing in Division 7.
To ensure our younger players have the opportunity to play senior league cricket we have a club rule that on any given Saturday at least 20% of the players must be juniors. We also have a Sunday side that plays in the Arden League and another playing friendly fixtures.
In 2014 we started a ladies section playing friendly fixtures and currently plan to enter one of the local ladies leagues in 2017.
Our junior section has over 120 players registered in teams from Under 9s up to Under 19s. We play boys and girls competitions in the Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Cotswold Hills competitions. Recent successes include:
2015: U17 Cotswold Hills League Champions, U13 Cotswold Hills League Champions, U13 Girls Warwcikshire Soft Ball League Champions, U12 Worcestershire League Champions, U11 Worcestershire Pairs Champions, U11 Worcestershire Premier League Champions
2014: U11 Cotswold Hills League Champions
2013: U12 Cotswold Hills League Champions & U15 Warwickshire League Champions
2012: U11 Worcestershire League Champions
Solihull U11 District Cup Winners: 2005, 2006 & 2008.
A number of our players have gone on to play representative cricket at District and County level.
Junior training sessions are on Friday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Our ECB-qualified coaches provide a friendly and safe environment for young cricketers aged 5 and upwards to learn and enjoy the game.
The clubhouse has a licensed bar and hosts social events throughout the year including quiz nights, parties, barbecues, camp nights and firework displays. Why not come along to a Friday evening junior training session to see what the club has to offer? Sitting in the evening sun having a drink on the decking accompanied by something from the barbecue persuades many to come back!
