Covid:

Clearly all senior age group cricket has to follow ECB Covid guidelines. In the ECB 50+ competition the Channel Islands have withdrawn for the 2021 season but fully intend to take part in 2022.

 

49+ and keen to play county cricket?

Then get in touch!

We run 3 championship teams and a friendly team

Our 50+ ECB team represents Cornwall in a national competition which features the very best O50s players across England and Wales as well as the Channel Islands, including several ex-county pros and internationals. This could be the best cricket of your career, played on premier league standard grounds which in our group includes Hampshire and Somerset. In recent years we have reached the semi-final and have twice been in the quarter final but we always need ‘new blood’ across all positions if we are to maintain those high finishes. 

Our 50+ Southern Counties team takes part in an equally competitive championship across a region which includes Wales, Wiltshire and Dorset as well as Hampshire, Somerset and Devon. Matches are played on Thursdays. Again it’s great, competitive cricket on good grounds. We can play two 49 year old ‘youngsters’ in any match.

We re-launched an O60s team in 2019 and it has continued to flourish under the guidance initially of Stuart Ellis and now team manager Chris Dennis and captain Bob Fleming. The team play in the National Over 60s championship enjoying matches virtually every Tuesday. For 2021 the team have 12 scheduled fixtures home and away v. Devon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Somerset and Wales. We can play two 59 year old ‘youngsters’ in any match. Plans are already underway for a 2nd O60s team for 2022. 

The friendlies team run by Paul Higgins enjoy a full range of fixtures against a variety of teams with a real mix of dates and formats – including matches that can end in draws! Click here for the Friendlies team page

If you’ve reached the stage of your cricket career where you need a new challenge in a competitive but fun environment and you have the flexibility to play midweek then the O50s / 60s is the place for you.

Your best cricketing years could still be ahead of you!
