Welcome to the Audlem Cricket Club Play-Cricket page
We are a village cricket club based in South Cheshire on the outskirts of the village of Audlem, which is a short drive out of the town of Nantwich. At this moment in time we have 4 teams. We have a 1st and 2nd XI that plays every Saturday, a Sunday XI that play friendlies against local clubs throughout the year and a team that compete in the 8-a-side Phoenix League during the week. Currently our 1st XI are members of the ECB Cheshire Alliance 2nd Division and our 2nd XI team are competing in the ECB Cheshire Alliance 4th Division.
In 2015, the club has a new 1st XI captain in Stu Stanway and 2nd XI captain in Danny Thorburn and will be aiming to improve on last season's performances
As a cricket club, we are always on the look out for players of all abilities to come and join us. If you are interested in joining the club, please contact Stu Stanway at firstname.lastname@example.org or Richard Wilson at email@example.com.
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:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
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.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
