St Austell Cricket Club was formed about 1834 and has been involved
in Cornish Cricket ever since. A founder member of the Cornwall Cricket
League, we now field 4 league teams at various levels with our First
Team playing in the ECB Cornwall Premier League. .The Club also field
two Women’s Teams and support Youth Cricket through our Youth Section
and Chance to Shine programme.
As a Community Amateur Sports Club and ECB Focus Club, we are proud of our links with the local community and our Clubmark Status that recognises the excellence of our playing and social facilities. Our ground is regularly used to stage County fixtures at all levels and host school tournaments.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
