Truro Cricket Club was founded in 1813 and celebrated it's Bicentenary season in 2013 with the launch of a book (The History of Truro Cricket Club). The content of the book was tirelessly researched by four
playing members of the Club, Jonathan Wyatt (Vice Chairman and Youth Coach), his Son's, Tim Wyatt, currently with Nottinghamshire CC, Sam Wyatt, a very talented young cricketer and Stephen Heayn (Assistant Secretary) and was a fitting way to celebrate 200 years of Truro CC.
The club has been based at it's current ground, Boscawen Park, Malpas, Truro since 1961 and in 2011 we celebrated 50 years at Boscawen Park. Remarkably, the picturesque Boscawen Park ground was formerly the City Refuse dump.
Truro Cricket Club is a preferred venue for Cornwall CCC fixtures and regularly holds Minor Counties fixtures. It has also played host to a number of first class teams in both competitive fixtures and non-competitive (Benefit and exhibition) matches.
Notably, We have hosted the following Gillette Cup fixtures (Cornwall V Glamorgan 1970 and Cornwall V Lancashire 1977) and C&G fixtures (Cornwall V Sussex 2001, Cornwall V Worcestershire 2002 and Cornwall V Kent 2003). More recently, on 8th July 2012 we welcomed England Ladies V India Ladies in what we believe to be the first competitive international match to be played in Cornwall, since 1899 when England were defeated by Australia at Truro's Tremorvah ground.
The PCA Masters were due to visit Truro to play against a Cornwall XI on 5th July 2012, but this fixture was sadly cancelled due to poor weather. In 2013, we hosted Somerset CCC V Unicorns and Nottinghamshire CCC V Netherlands inCB40 Fixtures.
Truro CC have been County Champions on twelve occasions, 1949, 1965, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1988, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2011 and are proud of the fact that both their 1st and 2nd
XI's competed in the top two divisions of the Cornwall Cricket League, between 1993-2000 & 2011. Nationally, we reached the Semi-Final of the Cockspur Cup (ECB National Club Cricket Championship) in 1990. A win at Cheam would have seen the team playing at Lords.
However, we were defeated by 33 runs. Truro Women's team was reformed in 2001 and has proved to be a major success for the club. In 2013 Truro Ladies became County Champions for the fifth time, having previously been champions in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011. The Ladies team have also won the Cornwall
Women's Evening League on seven occasions, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 and in 2014 narrowly missed out on a place in the semi finals of the National Indoor Championships.
The Club currently runs 4 Senior teams, One Women's, as well as Under 11, 13 and 15 Junior Teams. Truro 1st XI compete in the ECB Premier League, the 2nd XI in Division 2 West, 3rd XI in Division 4 West, 4th XI in Division 6 West and the Ladies team in the Cornwall Womens League and the Cornwall Women's Evening League.
A number of recent Truro cricketers have competed in first class cricket, to name a few Ryan Driver (Worcs & Lancs), Carl Gazzard & Michael Munday (Both Somerset) and Charles Shreck (Notts, Kent, Leicestershire & England A).
Truro CC has a history in promoting youth and was very successful regionally and nationally in the late 1980's though to the 1990's. At present we have a very talented number of young cricketers within the club, who are coached by a dedicated and experienced coaching team. We have high hopes that others will follow in the footsteps of the players named above and progress to first class cricket.
