Organised cricket in the town of Leyland can be traced back to 1848 when our club was founded. The current club incorporates the proud history and traditions of BTR CC (who were amalgamated in 2001) and Leyland Motors CC, who merged with Leyland & Farington CC in 2007 to create the club we have today.
We have five senior teams (four playing on Saturdays and one on Sundays) that compete in the Northern Premier Cricket League and the Palace Shield Cricket Competition. We run junior teams from under 9s to under 17s and encourage boys and girls of all ages and abilities to become involved in the sport. We are an ECB Clubmark accredited club which highlights our commitment to ensuring the best possible environment for young people to enjoy cricket and develop their abilities.
This website is currently undergoing reconstruction but in the meantime if you are interested in joining the club in any capacity please contact club secretary Ian Farrington at email@example.com
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:
