East Woodhay Cricket Club is a very friendly village-based club. We play league and friendly cricket at our beautiful ground in the village of East End, near Newbury on the Hampshire/Berkshire border.
The club can trace its history back to the mid-1800s was a founder member of the Hampshire League and in 2014 was voted as the Hampshire League Ground of the Year.
We have 2 league teams on a Saturday who compete in Hampshire County Division 3 (North) and Hampshire Regional 2 (North) respectively. On a Wednesday the Woodhay Woodpeckers play in Division 1 of the Downs Cricket League. We also run a Sunday team which has some competitive and prestigious friendly matches.
We are Clubmark registered and have grown our junior section to around 100 children over the last few years and we have junior teams playing in the Berkshire U9, U11, U13 and
U15 leagues. Our U15s won Berkshire Division 2 in 2014 and were Division 1 Runners Up in 2015.
Our junior are coached by our group of dedicated, qualified ECB Level 1 and 2 coaches, we have winter nets at Trinity School for the Juniors and Newbury College for the Seniors and weekly coaching at the club from April to August.
Our junior section provides representatives to both the Berkshire and Hampshire District and County squads and the continued development of our young players is something of which we are especially proud. We have a number of junior players entering into the senior teams, often getting to play matches with their Dads and we have a number of players who are the 3rd or 4th family generation to play at Woodhay.
We were also delighted to be selected as Hampshire’s Club of the Month for July 2015 and benefitted from working with the Hampshire ITC crew and our junior were delighted to have their 2015 awards presented by Joe Weatherley.
We are extremely proud of our traditions at Woodhay and we blend competitive cricket with a friendly atmosphere on and off the pitch at all levels and all age groups. We play to win, but not at the expense of the game’s traditional values of fair play and team spirit. Across the Club there is room for cricketers of all skill levels to practice and play in a team which suits their individual ambitions.
