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 2014 we reached the ECB National Club T20 quarter 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!

T20 Regional Semi-Final and Final @ Budleigh Sunday 28th June
Programme of Matches
Exmouth vs Seaton 10.30
Sidmouth vs Bradninch 13.30
After a 90 minute delay because of rain, the first match, Exmouth vs Seaton started with Exmouth Opening. Right from the start our superiority on the day showed with Richard Baggs scoring 103 in 53 minutes of of 45 balls before retiring to allow others to bat. The final score was 231 for 2 a hard score to beat! Seaton struggled, but for them it was too much and there was no way for them to qualify against such a formidable team!!
Sidmouth in their semi against Bradninch did not show their usual applomb and the final winning score for them was only 130 for 7!
The Final was therefore going to be interesting! Sidmouth, batting first were then needing to score well and produce some runs! Our bowlers gave them a hard time however and only managed 115 for 7, with Liam Lewis hitting the bulk of the runs with a 64-ball 73!!
Exmouth's turn to bat was hopefully going to enable us to retain the trophy!! The Team didn't disappoint and we strolled home with still three full overs and three balls to spare, losing just two wickets along the way with Baggs (42) and Allen (25) the men to fall. David Lye (40) and Dan Pyle (2) were the not out batsmen as the winning line was crossed with a final score of 122 for 2!!
