Stratford-upon-Avon CC

WELCOME TO SWANS NEST LANE
\"Weather\"
The first cricket match played on the Swans Nest Lane ground took place on Saturday June 2nd 1894 between Stratford 1st XI and Flowers Brewery, meaning that Stratford-upon-Avon Cricket Club has played at the same venue for almost 120 years. Tree lined and overlooked by the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, it is one of the most picturesque grounds in the region, and has played host to a number of Warwickshire's First Class matches, as well as a women’s One Day International.    

 

For the 2014 season the Club will be represented by three senior teams; 1st XI and 2nd XI in the Birmingham and District Premier League, 3rd XI in The Cotswold Hills League, and a Sunday XI called ‘The Avonsiders’.   There is heightened expectation for the coming season with Chris Whelan having just signed as Head Coach. Chris had a First Class career with Worcestershire CCC, and so brings a high profile of reputation, talent and coaching experience to the Club. We have big hopes for the new season!

 

The Club also has a thriving junior section. This season we are planning to run eight sides from U10 to U17, and will be competing in the Warwickshire Cricket Board competitions.
