Anyone for cricket?

Jackson-Stops Alderley Edge is proud to be a headline sponsor of Wilmslow Cricket Club.

Founded in 1946, Wilmslow Cricket Club plays a vital role in the local community, with opportunities for children, men and women to play the sport they love – at any level – in a supportive environment. 

Wilmslow Cricket Club is a proud member of the UKFast Cheshire Cricket League and currently sits in Division 2, with a second team in Division B East. They also play in the Cheshire County League (3rd team) and the High Peak Junior Cricket League. 

With three adult teams, 1st and 2nd team playing on Saturdays and a 3rd team who play on a Sunday, it's a busy local club. It also runs U13s, All Star Cricket (Ages 5-8), and Dynamo Cricket (Ages 8-11). Junior All Star training and Senior training takes place on Thursdays, with 3rd XI + Dynamos training on Wednesday evenings.

The Club organises a dizzying array of events too, so members and players benefit from being part of an encouraging team both on and off the field.

Recent events include socials to watch cricket at Emirates Old Trafford, business networking events, All Stars 2020 – aimed at 5-8 years olds to give them a great first experience of cricket and The Wilmslow Hundred Blast – a 100 ball competition to raise money for Mind.

Crispin Harris, Director at Jackson-Stops Wilmslow, commented: “We’ve been a part of the local community for many years, and avid followers of Wilmslow Cricket Club, so it made absolute sense to partner with such a diverse, energetic and successful local sports club. We’re closely following all teams and are delighted with their progress!”

Simon Bailey, Marketing Manager at Wilmslow Cricket Club, added: “With the help of local and national business, Wilmslow Cricket Club continues to grow from strength to strength, both on and off the field. To have Jackson-Stops Alderley Edge as our headline sponsor is a testament to the work that the club has put in over the past 12 months. It’s vital for us to work with partners that understand what we are trying to do at Wilmslow, and when we met with Crispin and explained our vision for the club – he bought in right away. We’re thrilled to be part of the Jackson-Stops family for the next three years!”

The Club is always looking for new players from all age groups, so do get in touch if you’re interested in playing cricket – whatever your level of ability.
