Elworth Cricket Club 1st and 2nd elevens play in Division One and Division Four respectively of the North Staffs & South Cheshire ECB Premier Cricket League. The 3rd eleven play in the Sunday section of the Cheshire County Cricket League. The club is based at London Road, Elworth, Cheshire, CW11 3BF, and our cricket professional for a 10th successive season in 2019 is Yasir Ali, who plays first class cricket for KRL in Pakistan.
The thriving junior section is recognised locally as one of the best in Cheshire with teams at U8, 9,11,13,15 and 19 levels, and is also active with the ECB AllStars scheme for Under 7's. The club has ClubMark status and strong links with local schools.
The club celebrated its 100th year in 2013 and has owned the cricket ground since that same year. It has recently extended the ground to include a new junior pitch and a new 3 lane practice net facility.

A boring opening batsman with a scoring zone from through the slips to backward point. I enjoy opening as it gives me a test and a buzz against the best bowlers. As a Yorkshireman Sir Geoffrey Boycott is my great boyhood hero, closely followed by Sir Viv Richards and David Warner. The highlight of my cricketing career was captaining my university to the final of British colleges, where I made 35 runs in the first 4 overs!!!!!! I have played at Elworth for over 15 years and enjoyed every minute, its an amazing place to play cricket from the pitch to the people. I have 3 kids, love my golf and I am the owner of purple and lilac golf shoes together with a pink pair when the mood takes me, this helped me get to the semi-final of the club championship last year. All the gear No idea kind of sums me up. I'm looking to enjoy my 50th year playing a great game with my mates.
