Manchester cricket club

We’re a very friendly, community driven, local sports club running 3 senior cricket teams and 4 junior age group teams. The club joined as a founder member of the Greater Manchester Cricket League in 2016 moving from the Lancashire County Cricket League.

During the time with the GMCL, the 1st XI have won their respective league twice gaining promotion to the GMCL Premier League for the 2019 season and the 2nd XI have also established themselves within the pyramid system gaining promotion in the 2019 season. Further to this, our 3rd XI were champions of their Sunday League division in 2019.

The club has also gained success at junior level and runs a vibrant junior section boasting a number of district representatives, with fully qualified coaches across all age levels from 6-16 where players feed into the senior section. The club offers cricket facilities at our picturesque Hamilton Road facility, including recently installed new net and training facilities which were installed in 2019 through a funding bid with Viridor and boasts over 150 members. In 2024, the club will have also installed brand new changing room facilities and toilets.

1st XI

The Stand CC first eleven has produced a number of 1st class players, including our most famous – Warren Hegg who played for Lancashire County Cricket Club and England. In 2024, our 1st XI will be captained by Chris Williams, a former Cumbra County Cricket Club player and supported by our new professional Majid Majeed.

The first team will be participating in the GMCL Championship 2024.

2nd XI

Taking part in the GMCL Division 4 West & Central 2024, the Stand CC 2nd team provides a link between the 3rd team and 1st team for younger players developing their game. A mix of experience and youth means we are proud to have a number of 16-17 year olds featuring heavily during the season.

3rd XI

After winning the 2019 division our 3rd team has given opportunities for multiple U15s players who now form the core of the 3rd team squad. A blend of youth and experience, the team finished 2nd last season. Hopefully they will go one more in 2024!

The current holders of the GMCL20 Championship Cup, Stand CC mixes 1st and 2nd teams players in with opportunities for U18s players to have their first taste of first team cricket.

Junior cricket

Stand Juniors welcome all children from the age of 6 to 16 to join us. Our ethos is one of enjoyment and participation.

The Junior Eagles develop our younger players in the basics of the game, so that they are ready to represent the club in the GMCL Under 11s competition by the time they are in schools years 4, 5 and 6.

We also have teams competing in the GMCL league at U9s, U11s and U18s age groups.
