Haslington Cricket Club based in south Cheshire was founded over one hundred years ago and have been at our current location for 25 years.
The club was a founder member of the South Cheshire Alliance Cricket League and played there until amalgamation into the North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Premier Cricket League.
The club has playing strength of four senior teams and seven junior teams from Under 9 to Under 18. The senior cricket is played in the Cheshire Cricket League (for our 1st and 2nd XI) having been promoted in 2013 from the Cheshire Alliance Cricket League.
Our 3rd and 4th XI play in the Cheshire County League. We are members of the South Cheshire Junior Cricket League, the North Cheshire Junior Cricket Association and.
The Clubhouse has our changing facilities, hosts teas and is our bar on match days Since the Club owner died, the Cricket Club has been responsible for its destiny as leaseholders of the ground. Until 2011, the Cricket Club has never been able to obtain funding from the ECB, Lord’s Taverners or other similar providers previously as the Club was in effect part of a limited company.
We have been fortunate in 2012 to secure funding for a fully enclosed three lane net facility. Half funded by an ECB grant, the balance raised by our members and donors.
We have had our ECB Clubmark renewed and are a Focus Club for the County. The Club has hosted junior County and County District fixtures. The Club has hosted the Cheshire Cricket Alliance Cup Final for the last three years, as the League Committee found our ground offers the best facilities in the League. We have hosted an Academy on behalf of Cheshire Youth and a Summer School at the club. The Club has plans to form a women’s team in the near future.
We have produced three players who have played junior Cheshire Women’s cricket in recent years and produced several junior boys who have represented Cheshire in varying age groups. We have also had a junior play for the North of England at the Bunbury Festival.
We have plans under way to introduce a women’s cricket team – the Haslington Does (the club logo being a squirrel and the female squirrel being a doe) and are actively recruiting players.
We have a strong and dedicated Management Committee with all of the ECB mandatory posts filled. Additionally we have a broad representation of player, junior and associated members elected. We have several UKCC2 qualified coaches, with more due to start their courses. Our members also include ECB ACO qualified umpires and are members of the Cheshire Association of Groundsmen.
