Welcome to the homepage of Moseley Ashfield Cricket Club.
Moseley Ashfield Cricket Club is an historic name in West Midlands cricket. Founded in 1900, we have a long and proud history and continue to provide opportunities to play cricket to all sections of Moseley’s diverse community.
We have three senior teams competing in the Warwickshire League and an active youth section that provides coaching and playing opportunities for all age groups.
Our picturesque ground, off Yardley Wood Road is one of Moseley’s hidden gems. As well as holding the club’s Warwickshire league matches, it’s also the home ground of the Old Moseley Arms cricket team and hosts fixtures in the ever-growing Local Leagues competition.
Our proximity to Birmingham city
centre also makes us a popular choice with companies looking for a quality
cricket facility to host their staff and client entertainment events.
2016 promises to be an exciting season for the club both on and off the field. Our senior teams have been boosted by several new recruits over the winter which should make us significantly more competitive across all three teams.
Meanwhile, we have made significant progress off the field over the winter and have been successful with a number of grant applications. As a result, we will be opening new double-bay practise nets at the Britannic Ground (funded by Sita Trust) and installing a synthetic wicket on the square at our main Yardley Wood Road ground (funded by the ECB) before the start of the new season. We will also be refurbishing the bar area at the main ground thanks to a grant from the ECB.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
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.
The four themes are:
