Welcome to Moddershall Cricket Club’s Play Cricket site
Founded in 1922/23 in the village of Moddershall, the club has come a long way since the days of playing in a rented farmers field.
Sited in beautiful countryside our 2 grounds (Barnfields and Wrekin View) panoramic views stretch over Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire making it one of the most picturesque grounds to play cricket. The facilities are undergoing constant improvements and the 4 bay artificial practice area located between the 2 pitches allows practice to take place even when matches are being played.
The club run 5 senior teams on a Saturday afternoon, 4 of which play in The North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Premier Cricket League and the other which plays in The Stone & District Cricket League. After winning promotion to the Premier Division our young 1st XI and all our senior teams have plenty to look forward to in 2015.
Our Academy, under the guidance of Andy Housley, one of our several ECB Level 3 coaches, continues to grow from strength to strength. We start coaching boys and girls from age 4 (reception) and with many of our youngsters coming through the junior ranks now playing cricket in our senior teams the future is looking very bright. We now have over 30 ECB qualified coaches & managers running the 13 teams and with the junior membership fast approaching 150 our strength continues to lie in low player to coach ratios.
Winter coaching for Seniors and Juniors is now under way at Sandon High School, anyone interested in taking part or require more information please send an email to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or call Andy on 07887 723 495.
As well our Senior and Junior teams we also have a thriving girls and ladies section. The girls play in The North Staffordshire Girls Youth League and the ladies run 2 teams in The South East Staffordshire Woman’s Cricket League and a team in The Midland Woman’s Cricket League.
Winter coaching for the girls and ladies is also under way at Alleynes Sports Centre with the next sessions commencing on 16th January 2015, anyone interested in taking part please send an email to email@example.com or call Dave on 07773 453 804.
Last but not least is our disabled section, the Moddershall 101’s that has over 30 players of varying disabilities who train throughout the year and who are a real credit to the club and the sport. It’s a section we’re very proud of. Anyone wanting more information with regards to this section please send an email to Margaret Hickman on firstname.lastname@example.org

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:
