About Abbotskerswell Cricket Club

Abbotskerswell Cricket Club was formed in 1898. We’re an ambitious, family friendly club, and we run two Saturday teams – the 1st XI playing in the Devon Cricket League A-Division, and the 2nds playing in the D-West Division. We also run a Friendly team that plays social cricket on Sundays and midweek, and have recently entered a Women’s team in to the Devon Women’s Softball Cricket League who play in the Southern League.

As well as adult cricket, we also have a number of age-group cricket teams for school-age children, and run regular (weekly) coaching sessions for them too.

2019 was an excellent year for the club, with the newly promoted 1sts maintaining their A-Division status, and the 2nds gaining promotion (as runners-up in the E-Division West) to the D-Division.

2020 saw a somewhat disrupted season with the Devon ‘Covid-cup’ competition replacing regular league cricket, but it did serve as an excellent launchpad for the rejuvenated Women’s softball cricket team under the stewardship of Women’s coordinator Chris Meikle.

2021 looks like being a another good year for the club, with the replacement of our existing practice facility with a brand new state of the art one (thanks to a very generous grant), the return of ‘normal’ Devon League Cricket for the men’s teams, and the inaugural Women’s Softball South League. We also have a busy Social cricket schedule, with plenty of Sunday/Midweek limited overs opportunities and quite a few T20 games. The men’s teams are also entered in the Devon, Brockman and Corinthian T20 Cup competitions.

We also welcome our newest recruit, Chathura Pieris from Sri Lanka, as our overseas player for 2021, who is an all-round cricketer with excellent playing credentials, along with being a Level-2 qualified coach. Welcome to the club Chathura!

Men’s training night is from 6pm Tuesday, with Women’s and Juniors training from 6pm on Fridays. Come along and join in! New players and enthusiasts always welcome.
