1. Brief Background to the Formation of ECC


One of the first cricket clubs to exist in the French provinces, Eymet Cricket Club (Club Eymetois de Cricket) was founded in 1983 by a group of “expats” who were seriously missing their favourite sport. For the first season they played on coconut matting laid on the town’s football pitch, but the following year the Mayor kindly offered use of our present ground at Eymet – complete with stand and all necessary facilities.

The club plays an average of twenty matches per season – South-west league and cup competitions, and against several overseas touring sides.
