Based in the south Cotswolds just north of Bath, Marshfield Cricket Club is a friendly and welcoming village cricket club. We are the heart of the local community!
Village Cricket At Its Best!
We currently run three senior men's competitive sides on a Saturday (and even a 4th XI when numbers permit!) and a friendly side on occasional Sundays and during the week. The First eleven compete in the West of England Premier league Prem 2 Glos/Wilts Division and the Second and Third elevens compete in the Wiltshire Cricket League. They also compete in the National Village Cup on Sunday. In 2009 we reached the last 8 of the competition, just two games away from Lords!
Fantastic Youth Section
We also have a very active and large youth section, starting at the age of 5 through All Stars Cricket and then moving through to boys and girls age groups playing competitive cricket and Festivals - U9s, U11s, U13s and U15s. We’re very proud of our record in promoting Girls cricket and have equal numbers of boys and girls registered with us. We also run a new Academy Girls’ team playing in the Wiltshire hardball Leagues.
Established Ladies Team
We now have an established Ladies section comprising up to 30 members, playing both softball and hardball cricket and training on Wednesdays.
Lively Social Scene!
Our social side is very lively and very important to us. The bar is open during all matches and we also hold a number of fundraising events throughout the year (quizzes/themed nights/Marshfest) which are well supported. The Friday evening youth practices are also a key part of the local social scene!
