Welcome to the Home page of Shillingstone Cricket Club
Welcome to the 2017 Season
Cricket continues to develop apace at Shillingstone;our two men’s teams on Saturday are playing
in the Dorset Premiership and Division 2 respectively; these represent the
highest level reached in the club’s history and are undoubtedly bring some
challenges for us but real successes are still there including a record hundred
for Tom House in June again Martinstown. We have also re-entered the Wednesday
evening Ranston League.
The club has entered the newly established 25-25 over league,
seeking with many other clubs to address the participation decline in Sunday cricket.
We have attracted more than 15 new adults within the village to cricket and
already held several practices and twice put out teams of men and women in
matches against Sturminster and Verwood. This exciting new area has been linked
to sustaining our junior cricket and the club is a recognized centre for the
new ECB All Stars programme, attracting first level entry youngsters between
the ages of 5 and 8. Currently we are also running two U9 sides and 1 U11 who
have been playing regular local evening matches and the club also runs a weekly
session at the primary school. All of this has been very well supported by the
parents, special mention to Martin Barlow for becoming an ECB activator and the
manager of the U9s cohort.
Always room for more players and more volunteers at the club…please
