Welcome to the website of Urmston Cricket Club. Urmston CC's home is The UCG which is on Moorside Road, Urmston in South West Manchester. We are a progressive cricket club and currently run six senior teams in the ECB Cheshire County League. Our 1st XI play in the ECB Premier League.
We also have an active junior club and welcome all juniors from aged 7 upwards to our Monday evening (6-7.30pm) training sessions during the season. The club also runs the EBS Junior Cricket Academy which offers opportunities for talented young cricketers to develop their games and to improve their fitness and co-ordination through our strength and conditioning programme. We run 9 junior teams in the Salford Cricket League and South Manchester Junior Cricket League.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
