Welcome to Exmouth Cricket Club

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!

National Final of the NatWest Club T20
at SWALEC Stadium Cardiff, September 1st
The sad news was that after beating Pudsey Congs in the 1st part of the final is that we met a Ealing, a team in fantastic form who sad to say beat us handsomely.
The Video to the RHS of this page summarises the match.
Below is the report from our captain Gary Chappell, who rightly said there was nothing to be embarrassed about by the eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Ealing in the NatWest Clubs T20 final.Ealing knocked off Exmouth’s 174 for seven with nearly two overs to spare – a massive margin in the shortest form of the game.
Exmouth’s bowlers struggled to contain Ealing, whose charge to victory was led by former Middlesex all-rounder Chris Peploe with an unbeaten 70.
There were some expensive overs – David Lye for 19, Trevor Anning (17) and Chappell 16 – with little respite from the onslaught.
Anything short, wide or both got the treatment and from a long way out it was clear which way the game was going.
“I didn’t feel we bowled that badly, but Ealing hit the ball very cleanly on a flat pitch,” said Chappell.
“We were on the same pitch used by England and Australia for a T20 the day before, which wasn’t like anything we were used to and didn’t act the way we would have liked.
“Ealing are a big club – bigger than us – with huge resources and players used to this sort of occasion.
“It wasn’t the first time they had been to the finals day of the competition, whereas we had never got that far before.
“We would like to come back and have another go, although it is hard getting all this way through four qualifying rounds and sets of play-offs.
“We nearly went out in the first round to Alphington, so in some respects we were lucky to get as far as we did.
“Our win over Pudsey Congs in the semi-final was an exceptional performance, to win with a ball to spare.
“We beat Wimbledon in the quarter-finals off the last ball, so no one can say we haven’t had our moments either.
“We have played some good cricket all the way to the final and in years to come that is what this group of players will remember.”
Sky TV were at the game to record a highlights programme which will be shown later this month.
The club were well supported with a coachload making the trip and many others making there own way up. This was a great occasion for the club and to be 2nd out of 750 participating teams in the Country is not to be sneezed at!!!
