Senior Cricket at Dunstall in 2017

For 2017, we will welcome many new faces to the club as we seek to develop further all forms of club cricket at Dunstall. We will again be running four senior teams, in the Derbyshire County League (Divisions 1, 5S and 8S), whilst a fourth (Sunday) XI will again compete in the Lichfield League. Add in a number of exciting cup competitions as well as a variety of touring and friendly social gatherings - 2017 promises to be another year to remember. 

Mention of cup competitions means another tilt at the National Village Cup, the First XI seeking to defend the Marston's Smooth Trophy; whilst we have also entered the Staffordshire Cup. 

We will also host two touring teams - our friends from Old Hendon and a much awaited return for the West Indian Lime Masters in August. 

We shall again enter the ECB U19 tournament, again bringing the full-on T20 experience back to The  Deer Park this coming summer.

For the Ladies, there will also be at least one team running with additional practice sessions during the early part of the summer.

Junior Cricket in 2017

As we near the end of the fullest programme yet of Junior Winter Leagues activities - which has seen teams fielded in the Paulet Junior League, Repton Indoors and Willows Indoor Cricket competition; the focus will now turn to the outdoor summer schedule. 

We will again run a full set of junior teams, seeking to provide cricket for as many of our junior members as possible. We shall field teams in the Burton & District Youth Cricket League, Kidsgrove Junior Cricket League and the South Derbyshire Leagues Junior Development Group League.

There will also be inter-club activities, and we will fully support the new All-Stars programme, unveiled by the ECB, this spring. 

Finally, in August, we will again run our ever popular Cricket Week.

The History of Dunstall

Dunstall Cricket Club was originally founded in the 1890's and re-formed in 1960 to play on the Dunstall Estate, near Barton under Needwood - one of the most picturesque grounds in the Midlands. We also have use of a second ground in the village of nearby Rangemore. During the 1980's we played in the Burton & District League before moving to the Derbyshire County Cricket League in 1992. Since joining such League, the First Team have competed mainly in the Premier Division but currently compete in Division 1. There have been many Cup highlights the prime of which was, in 1990, when Dunstall proudly played in the Village Cup Final against Goatacre at Lords. This is a competition that was entered afresh in 2016. The latest silverware was won in 2016, when the First XI defeated Wirksworth to win the Marston's Smooth Trophy. Other recent successes include the Second XI winning Division 5 in 2015 and the Third XI winning Harewood Cup in 2011.

The Future at Dunstall

We are looking to build partnerships with local businesses to enable us to continue to offer an improved standard of coaching for local youngsters and to take our club to the next level.

We are always keen to introduce new playing members of all ages and abilities to all of our squads; so if you would like to join us, please feel free to attend an appropriate training session or come along to Dunstall one evening.
