Founded in 1950, Penkridge Cricket Club is a friendly, family orientated club based at the picturesque Pillaton ground approximately a mile from the centre of Penkridge.
We have four Saturday teams, with the first and second teams playing in Division Two and Division Two North (2XI) of the Birmingham and District Premier League respectively.

Our third and fourth teams play in Division One and Division Five of the Staffs Clubs Championship, and our (mainly!) youthful Sunday team compete in the Lichfield and District League.
In addition to our senior sides, we also have a thriving junior section with teams playing at under 9, under 11, under 13, under 15 and for the first time in 2016 an under 19 team which will be playing in the NatWest under 19 club twenty20 competition. We regularly have around 60 children taking part in our coaching sessions on a Friday night. The 2015 season also saw us have 13 children representing the club in the Staffordshire district and county teams across all age groups which was a record number for the club.
Recent years have seen an unprecedented level of success for the club, with the first team winning the Staffs Clubs Championship twenty20 competition in 2010 and 2011, adding the League title to “do the double” in 2011 and gain promotion to the Birmingham and District Premier League set up. This was then followed with the Birmingham League division three title in 2013.
The second team won a league and cup double of their own in 2010, retained the league title in 2011 and added the Birmingham League Division Two North title in 2013. Not to be left behind the third team added their own league title success in 2010, a league twenty20 cup win in 2013 and became the first third team to play in the Staffs Clubs Championship Premier division.
We are very proud that over half of the players regularly turning out in our Saturday senior teams are “home grown” which will hopefully only increase over the next few seasons with the numbers making their way through the junior ranks.
The club hold a number of social and fund raising events during the course of the year, which are very well supported by players, family and friends leading to an entertaining and profitable occasion.
During the course of the 2016 season we are going to look to post regular blogs to this site with news of our progress, results and news from within the club which will hopefully be a good read and provide some amusement!
