Cricket returns to Martinstown

Finally cricket, albeit it in a reduced form has returned to the village.

In strict accordance with ECB guidelines a resumption of activities now means that all players both junior and senior will have the chance to swing the bat. The plan is for restricted leagues will be running during August and September. We are entering two senior teams who will play their opponents once instead of the normal two fixtures. There will be no promotion or demotion in this revised league structure. Much will depend on some decent weather into September. At the time of writing we are still waiting on guidance for the junior competitive format.

In the meantime, despite the layoff, our ground staff have continued to maintain the ground to the highest standard. We are as ever very grateful for their efforts which, given the circumstances, has been challenging. In addition we have installed a defibrillator and thanks to the generosity of National Grid have the benefit of a brand new artificial wicket.

Finally our thanks to everyone at the club who has, in every way, kept the spirit of cricket alive duringthe restrictions. We look forward to an enjoyable, if limited season.

About Martinstown Cricket Club

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 senior team competing in Dorset Premier division, an Evening League side and we also play friendly matches on Sundays and midweek. We enjoy hosting touring teams at our beautiful ground.

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 18s, although youngsters from 7 and up are more than welcome at our friendly club. We are looking to start a girls section, so if interested please contact us.
