Welcome to Exmouth Cricket Club
Exmouth Cricket Club was founded in 1843 and occupies one of the most idyllic settings in Devon on the edge of the world famous Jurassic Coast looking out over Lyme Bay.
The Ist XI playing in the Devon Premier League, in 2015 we reached the ECB National Club T20 finals, in 2013 Devon League title holders and completed the double by also winning the Devon Senior Cup.
The Club hosts Devon County Cricket Club's Minor Counties and Devon Cricket Board games as well as to teams from the First Class County Game.
The Ground can accommodate 18 wickets as well as allowing for a 65 metre boundary while still having the capacity for spectators to drive onto the ground to watch the cricket.
Exmouth Cricket Club has achieved ClubMark status in recognition of its child friendly approach to cricket and now has thriving Colts and Ladies sections as well as five other adult teams.
The Bar in the club pavilion and neighbouring T- Hut Café are open to club members and the public serving food and drink with the Bar also hosting events throughout the year.
The Bar has this year been decorated and has a new carpet (courtesy of Market Carpets) and a new 50" TV (courtesy of Carters Electrical), so is a great place to chill either after a match or at the weekend when the bar is open. Special Sporting events will also see the Pavilion opened to provide a convivial and comfortable bar to enjoy watching the matches on the new TV!
The New 2015 Fixtures List is now downloadable via the Fixtures page.

New Club Chairman
The Committee are very pleased to advise that we have been successful in Appointing Ashton Collinge as our new Chairman following the sad passing of Richard Butler. Well I say new, but of course Ashton an Exmothian, has been Chairman before having joined the club in 1977, played in the First team for 15 years and served 22 years on the Committee and 21/2 years as Chairman. He was also at that time Membership Secretary, Captain of the second team and managed Colts teams. He still plays on occasion for the 3rd team. Many of you will already know Ashton and know that he is superbly placed to lead the club again. The committee are already appreciating his vast knowledge of the clubs past and this will enable us to move into the future with fresh vigour.
We are convinced that Ashton will guide us past our difficult last 3 months and ensure that the club thrives. Richards legacy will be a hard act to follow, however in Ashton, we feel confident that we will build a better and more inclusive club.
I am sure that all members would like to thank Ashton for once again stepping into the breach and am also sure that you will all support not only Ashton but the Club as a whole during the coming season!
Our lack of an Estates Manager last year presented us with many difficulties, however as advised before, Alan Schaufler has happily agreed to undertake the position. Whilst he cannot be `full time’ in the post until after his retirement in July, be assured he has already started looking at the vital work needed to our ground and buildings and will ensure that we have a programme of work for the NatWest CricketForce Weekend (1st-3rd April).

If so we would love to hear from you!! The more helpers we have, the more fun we can make Friday nights for ALL the family.
