1888 to 2013 - Celebrating 125 years of cricket at Ashley

Welcome to Ashley

Ashley Cricket Club was founded in 1888, and is run as an inclusive club to offer competitive sport for players of all ability.  Set in the picturesque village of Ashley, the club runs 6 senior teams and 6 junior teams from ages 6 to 15.  5 of the senior teams play within the Cheshire pyramid with the First and Second XIs in the TACS Partnership Cheshire Cricket League and the Third and Fourth XIs in the Vivio Cheshire County League and we also have an academy team, focused on bringing our younger players through to senior cricket, entered into the Vivio Cheshire County Cricket League. Finally we run an over 40s team which plays midweek T20 cricket. . 

We are committed to offering safe and inclusive environment to play cricket, with a particular focus on our younger players.  This commitment is shown through our Clubmark accreditation.  Click here to find our more.

The website is a starting point for everything related to the club.  We try to record every match that is played at Ashley and they are all accessible.  After each game the captains vie with each other to see who can outdo the others by producing a match report that will enlighten and entertain in equal measures.  We are very proud of our the information we have collected in our History area of the website.  Brian has also spent a considerable amount of time trawling through local archives to find match reports and interesting bits and bobs.  Of particular interest is the summarised history of the club which was largely drawn from the fascinating history written by Geoff Turton in 1988.

As well as this site Ashley maintains a group on Facebook.  Join this and you can take part in the lively debates or just enjoy the wit and banter of your fellow club players and members. 

Please remember, this is a family club and that young people will be reading our comments.  It is everyone's responsibility to protect the wonderful reputation of this club by ensuring that all discussion is appropriate.
