Welcome to Preston Cricket Club
Near Hitchin, Hertfordshire
WELCOMING NEW PLAYERS FOR 2022 SEASON…..
The club was first founded in 1882. In the modern era, the club has grown into a highly respected cricket club providing a welcoming and safe cricketing environment for all.
The club focuses particularly on youth cricket development as well as a safe, social and collaborative environment within which to learn and develop through cricket . All of our members are asked to take an active part in the running and maintenance of their club. We are very proud to see many of our original junior members now running aspects of the club.
We always aim to be be progressive, proactive and inclusive of all of our membership.
We are Clubmark registered and a member of the Club Cricket Conference. We are a proud member of the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League and the Sunday Bedfordshire Cricket League and T/20 competition.
We now field six cricket teams over the course of a weekend with teams made up from a membership from all over North Hertfordshire. On Saturday’s we have four sides in the Saracens Cricket League with our First X1 playing in the Championship division in the 2020 season; having gained promotions in both the 2018 and 2019 seasons. We also field successful Sunday teams with our First X1 playing in the Sunday Beds League and our Sunday 2’s playing local friendlies focused on youth development.
Our focus is very much on our young members and as such we operate a Junior Development Programme that has been running for over twenty years. Many of our young players are encouraged to take part in senior cricket when they, and the coaching staff, feel they are ready and many young players have gone on to to achieve county level success. Our Junior Cricket programme is focused on real coaching; team work, technical development and how to enjoy cricket. We would rather keep small and focus on children that genuinely wish to learn.
Our facilities are second to none with our main ground in Preston being one of North Hertfordshire’s premier cricket grounds, located very near to Hitchin, Stevenage and Luton, in the village of Preston. We also have other superb facilities kindly offered to us by our Vice Presidents and supporters. Please find us in our Contact section.
Our social outlook and busy social calendar means that club life goes on all year round, with the cricket club also being the origin of a successful league football side, league darts team and a hiking society in the winter months.
We are proud to encourage from within the club and take great pride in seeing our younger members achieving success both on and off the pitch.
