Welcome to Montgomery Cricket Club
Montgomery Cricket Club is a long established club with roots in the first half of the nineteenth century, but we are also forward looking and have a strong and expanding Youth Section of over 50 members under the age of 16. In 2008 we became an England and Wales Cricket Board Clubmark Accredited Club and this has enabled us to build an extension to our clubhouse, two bay all weather nets, and all weather pitch on our square and purchase new ground maintenance equipment and pitch covers. We are currently investing in improving our square and outfield.
Our two senior teams play in the Shropshire League and our Youth Section now includes Under 9, 11, 13 and 15 age groups. We also have a busy season of more relaxed Sunday fixtures and play throughout the winter in the Shropshire Indoor League.
Cricket has been played on our home ground at picturesque Lymore since at least the 1840s. It is one of the best settings for cricket anywhere in the country and over the years it seen many memorable events - more can be found on the history page of our website.
Our ground in beautiful Lymore Park. Home since 1849.
