Welcome to Clevedon Cricket Club - a friendly, family orientated club with excellent social and playing facilities.
Established in 1874, the club offers beautifully picturesque views of the Mendips and Bristol Channel from its ground at Dial Hill.
The playing area and facilities are widely regarded as some
of the best in the region, demonstrated
by the wicket being voted the best in the league for two consecutive seasons – and the addition of a brand-new three lane artificial net further improves the facilities on offer at Dial Hill.
The club’s first XI will be playing in WEPL Premier One for the first time in their history this season following back-to-back promotions, while the second XI compete in the Bristol & North Somerset Division.
Clevedon Cricket Club also fields a third and Sunday XI – while a thriving junior section offers Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 age groups, all of whom compete in the North Somerset Junior cricket league.
The club is ECB accredited and is also an ECB Focus Club - ensuring child safety and coaching standards among other many other things.
The junior section has aided the development of a number of county representatives throughout the age-groups, along with district and regional players.
Training for the junior sides takes place at 5.30 on Fridays at Dial Hill, while senior training is at 6pm on Tuesday.
These sessions are taken by Club Coach Piers Mcbride jnr, who is an ECB Level 3 Coach.
Club Captain is John Bachelor, who has been in this role for five seasons - and the club boasts a number of high-profile ex-players including Andrew Caddick, Geraint Jones, Mark Greatbatch, Mark Douglas, Rob Cunliffe and Peter McGlashan.
More recently, South African all-rounder Kyle Abbott, has become a regular fixture in the South Africa team across all formats of the game - and took seven wickets in his first innings to become the 9th most successful bowler in his first test match innings.
As well as possessing a competitive and hard-working nature on the pitch, we also have an inviting social environment and a depth of character that can only be experienced.
With regular social events throughout the year, we hope to serve up many wonderful summer nights; regardless of the weather we are granted.
Our club is open to players and non-players of all ages and abilities and strives to ensure that each visitor has a pleasant and enjoyable experience at Dial Hill, we hope yours is too.
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:
