WELCOME TO WINSCOMBE CC
Winscombe Cricket club in Somerset has been established for over 130 years playing cricket on the village recreation ground against the backdrop of the scenic Mendip hills.
The club has achieved Clubmark and Focus club status reflecting the clubs development with the award being presented personally by Giles Clarke the then chairman of the ECB. With the help of Lottery and Lord Taverners grants new practice nets have been installed and the artificial wicket replaced bringing our playing facilities right up to date.
We field two Saturday sides in the Somerset Cricket League with the 1st XI playing the Premier division and the 2nd XI in division 7N. A newly formed Development Sunday team plays friendlies along with our midweek and seniors XIs. We are also entering the Somerset T20 Intermediate cup with the final at Taunton and also entering the Weston Super mare T20 evening league.
The cricket clubs future lies with the 100 plus boys and girls in our thriving youth section run by qualified coaches and head of youth cricket Roger Willmot. Coaching and training in the basics of the game for 5-13 year olds takes place on a Wednesday evening from 18:30 – 20:00. This year we have league sides for under 11s, 13s and 19s. We have already seen the benefit of our youth programme with half of the current first team being products of the youth sides.
Off the field the clubhouse offers a fantastic facility with 2 bars and a function room that can accommodate 200 people as well as incorporating a very popular skittle alley well used by social members as well as sportsmen and women all the year round.
We rely on the many volunteers that keep the club going on and off the field. We are though equally dependent on the support we receive from the Parish council and our sponsors especially our main sponsor THATCHERS the Cider makers and our Shirt sponsors PERTEMPS
