The 2014 Season
Derbyshire Premier and County League seasons begin on Easter Saturday 19 April. We will run three senior teams in these leagues.
In addition, this year the fourth XI will participate in the Lichfield Sunday League.
We will run a full set of junior teams - we will field teams in both the Burton and South Derbyshire Leagues- and along with the ladies teams and also the return of the Sunday Friendly XI, there will be lots of cricket for everyone.
The History of Dunstall
Dunstall Cricket Club was originally founded in the 1890's and reformed 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 Cricket League in 1992 and since 2000 we have played in the ECB Derbyshire Premier League.
The Future at Dunstall
We are looking to build strategic 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.
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:
