Ashley Cricket Club
Ashley Cricket Club was founded in 1888, and is run as an inclusive club to offer competitive sport for players of all ability. Set in the picturesque village of Ashley, the club runs 5 senior teams and 6 junior teams from ages 6 to 15. 4 of the senior teams play within the Cheshire pyramid with the First and Second XIs in the UKFast Cheshire Cricket League and the Sunday Third and Fourth XIs in the Vivio Cheshire County League and we also have an academy team, focused on bringing our younger players through to senior cricket, entered into the Cheshire Cricket Alliance. Finally we run an Over 40s team which plays midweek T20 cricket.
We are committed to offering safe and inclusive environment to play cricket, with a particular focus on our younger players. This commitment is shown through our Clubmark accreditation, a standard recognised by leading governmental and sporting bodies the ECB and Sport England, that demonstrate a commitment by a club to various standards regarding, safety, inclusion and coaching expertise.
