About Us & Sponsors
Masham Cricket Club have been playing in the town for over 100 years. We are part of the Masham Sports Association, a charitable organisation. We are an ambitious club and we work closely with our community to raise the profile of our club for the benefit of Masham and the surrounding area. Sport can make a difference and we are determined to continue to build those links and enhance our reputation.
In 2016 season we were delighted to announce that the club was to have two major sponsors. Swinton Park sponsoring the junior section, whilst the Black Sheep Brewery sponsored all the senior sides. We are delighted that they will continue to support us during 2017. Its really pleasing to be associated with two local, but nationally recognised businesses and it speaks highly of them that they wish to support their local cricket club. We are sure that this is a long term relationship which will benefit both the club and our sponsors. All teams representing Masham will be wearing the sponsored team wear.
We also recognise that alongside our two main sponsors many other local businesses and individuals provide valuable financial support, whether that’s ball sponsorship, or having an advertising board at our ground. That support is very much appreciated and we hope all those supporters will continue to work with us into the future
We currently participate in the Nidderdale Cricket League with two senior sides playing every Saturday during the summer. The first XI were division two champions in 2016, so are promoted back to the top division. The second eleven, which is very much used for the development of our thriving junior set up will be in division five for the 2017 season. We have a side in the Wensleydale Evening League playing every Wednesday. The side consists of a mixture of first and second eleven players as well as some juniors. The club will also be entering a small number of knock-out cup competitions and will also have a few friendly fixtures.
Our junior set-up goes from strength to strength and for the 2017 season we will be running sides at Under 15, Under 13, Under 11, Under 9 and Under 7. Those teams will participate in the Nidderdale Junior League and the Hambleton Junior League.
Coaching for juniors takes place every Saturday morning commencing in April and runs until the start of the school holidays in July. We had over 80 youngsters between the ages of 6 and 14 attending training during 2016 and hope to see similar numbers for 2017 season. Indoor nets also take place during the winter to assist in the continuous development of the youngsters. We encourage girls as well as boys. Anybody interested in joining our juniors please contact club coach: Mark Ellis on 01677 426522 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are determined to build a family club encouraging membership from all ages. Our committee is working hard at enhancing our club’s reputation both locally and further afield. We are always looking for more people to join us either as players or just somebody wanting to support our aims and ambition. We are building something special and we look forward to you joining us.
Our website is updated on a regular basis and we are also on Facebook (Masham Cricket Club) and twitter (@mashamcricket) so you can be kept updated on a daily basis
