Welcome to the website of South Shields Cricket Club, members of the Dukes North East Premier League.
We will soon be operating four senior teams, and seven junior teams; at under 18, under 15, two in the under 13 age group, two at under 11 and one at under 9.
Our first team currently plays in the NEPL Premier Division after securing the Division 1 title on the last day of the 2104 season. The second team plays in Division 3 (both Saturdays). The Academy side plays in NEPL Sunday Division 1, while a new fourth team will hopefully compete in the Hetton Lyons Sunday League as we strive to provide our promising youngsters extra tastes of senior cricket.
New players are always welcome, so if you are interested in joining us, contact club secretary Chris May on 07585971311, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.

ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
