About Martinstown Cricket Club
Well done to our 2XI team who gained promotion to Div 4 and our XI team finished 4th in the Premier league, our best every position. Our U19s are Dorset U19 ECB T20 champions after winning final match against Parley. Our club dinner will be held on Saturday, 17th November, at The Brewers Arms in the village. Our AGM is on Sunday November 4th, 10 am, at the clubhouse, all welcome.
We are a progressive club based in the centre of Dorset, between Dorchester and Weymouth. We have two Saturday sides in the Dorset Funeral Plan League, with the XI team competing in the Dorset Premier division and 2XI in Div 4 from 2019, an Evening League side playing in Division 1. We also play friendly matches on Sundays and midweek. We have entered a team for the adult indoor league 2018/19 at Clayesmore School. We enjoy hosting touring teams at our beautiful ground. Please read our Chairman's Report for 2018 season Highlights.
ECB Club Mark Club
We are an ECB Club Mark club. This is in recognition of our excellent standards and dedication towards youth cricket. All sessions are led by a team of qualified coaches, supported by parent / guardian managers. We are always on the lookout for committed and dedicated help.
Our youth sides are: under 9s, 11s, 13s, 15s and 19s. All Stars Cricket is available for children aged 5 to 8.
We are delighted that we filled the important position of Ladies and Girls Team Captain. Tanya Hawlett agreed to take on the role. Tanya lives in the village, and is a sports teacher at Wey Valley.
We can say with justification that cricket at Martinstown is now very much a family affair!'

All Stars Cricket
In 2018 we registered for All Stars Cricket providing girls and boys, from aged 5 to 8, with a great first experience in cricket. Each child received an all stars cricket pack, which included a bat, stumps, ball & a cricket shirt with their name on.
The activity and game based programme is suitable for all skill levels.
