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!

National Semi Final of the NatWest T20 against Wimbledon
Sunday 16th August @ 1pm
The great news is that we won the Match!!! Wimbledon won the toss and elected to bat. Whilst the square was dry and hard the outfield was decidedly wet and soft after the hard rain on the preceding Friday! However they scored a creditable 157 for 6, a good total for us to chase!!
Exmouth had an inauspicious start to their innings loosing opener Richard Baggs and Bobby Dawson without troubling the scorer!
David Lye was then joined by Dan Pyle who enjoyed a partnership of 104, tipping the scales back! With Pyle and Lye back in the pavilion, we then lost 3 further wickets and it was left to Trevor Anning and Finlay Marks, to bring us to victory! They kept us on the edge of our seats however, by scoring the final runs off the last ball!!
Our Final Score was 158 for 7
The next stage, the Finals are at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff on Tuesday 1st September!!
We are hoping to arrange a coach for supporters! The timings to be advised and club members will be advised both by email and this website!!
This match will be televised on Sky!!!!
Our Victorious Team pictured below!

NatWest Club T20 Final to be held at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff on Tuesday 1st September
Dear Members As I am sure that you have already heard, our 1st team won the regional Semi final against Wimbledon last Sunday, so we are now through to the Finals Stage to be held at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff on Tuesday 1st September! The First Match starts at 11:15am! The Other Finalists, as well as Exmouth CC 1st XI, are Ealing CC 1st XI, Pudsey Congs CC 1st XI and Chester Boughton Hall CC – Twenty20. Chester Boughton Hall were last years winners, so are sure to want to retain the trophy! Our team really need your support to encourage and cajole them to victory!! The Draw for the Programme for matches has been drawn as follows:
11.15 Exmouth v Pudsey
14.45 Chester v Ealing
The Club would like to put on a coach, if we can get sufficient support, however that means that we will need to know if you would like to travel by coach as soon as possible, certainly within the next couple of days! The coach would need to leave Exmouth at 7 a.m. to be sure of getting to Cardiff in time for the 1st game, which of course we are playing in. The departure time will have to be after the last match at say 10.15-10.30, on the assumption that we reach the Finals. This does mean that if we failed to win our stage that we would be staying to watch the remaining 2 games anyway! If you are interested in going by coach please contact either myself on 01395 273629 or email email@example.com or Richard Butler on 01395 263196 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Obviously emailing either of us is preferably to telephone as it easier to collate the information. We will be ascertaining the likely cost hopefully today and will advise when known. This information will also be posted on the club Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Exmouth-Cricket-Club/242697155840156 and the Club website: http://www.exmouthcricketclub.co.uk/ I am sorry this is all at short notice, however the dates for these matches are determined by the ECB! If you know of any club member/supporter who is not on email, please could I ask if you could advise them as time does not permit us to use snail mail! Looking forward to hearing from you kind regards Paul Corder Hon Secretary
