We are your local friendly club catering for all members of the community – from five year olds upwards and for all abilities from novice to expert. The club has been running since the 1950s and is well equipped with an excellent square, two new nets, new changing rooms and an electronic scoreboard – facilities reflecting the high standard of cricket played by the First XI in the Gloucestershire County Cricket League.
We have a great junior and youth section providing coaching for the youngsters and the youth teams play in all the local leagues. On Friday evenings during the season we organise youth cricket practice for all ages and this has become quite a social event for parents and supporters.
On Saturdays we field two senior teams in the local leagues and there are often evening matches in midweek. In the winter we compete very successfully in the county indoor league.
For more information about fixtures and results check out the Woodpeckers CC home page on the Play Cricket web site.
This really is a cricket club for everyone (even if you just want to come and watch while having a drink) so get in contact with me or pop along when you hear the sound of leather on willow and get involved – I promise you we are not your standard cricket club – no ties needed!
