Buoyed by the recent success enjoyed by the national team, cricket is enjoying a popular time at the top of the game and this is having a knock on effect at grass roots level.
Nowhere is this better reflected than in the continued success achieved by Shrewsbury Cricket Club’s teams, with three national championships, 11 league titles, 16 cup wins and countless junior victories since the new millennium.
Allied to this is the recent individual achievements of some of our players with no fewer than five earning full-time contracts with first-class county sides, ten being selected for Worcestershire’s Academy and over 20 representing Shropshire’s Minor Counties side. More recently, James Taylor (England senior side) and Ed Barnard (England U19s) have achieved national recognition.
With four adult’s teams competing in league cricket on Saturdays and a 120 strong junior section boasting a total of 10 teams alongside both women’s and girl’s teams, Shrewsbury can arguably lay claim to being Shropshire’s premier cricket club.
The men’s first and second teams, who play in their respective Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League Premier Divisions, currently play at the highest level they possibly can whilst our third and fourth teams continue to provide a stepping stone for the club’s talented youngsters to progress into the first eleven and beyond.
As a club, we are looking to expand on this level of achievement and the growth of cricket in Shrewsbury by offering the chance for external organisations to become a part of the success that is Shrewsbury Cricket Club, through a range of sponsorship opportunities.
In doing so, giving you the chance to associate your company and brand with some of Shropshire’s finest cricketers and a family oriented cricket club.
