Skelmersdale Cricket Club
Skelmersdale CC was formed in 1891. The Club moved from its old ground in School Lane in 2002 to a new purpose-built facility at Firswood Park.
We run three Senior teams and play in the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition. This is the only designated ECB Premier League in Lancashire.
We also run five Junior teams - U9, U11, U13, U15 and U18. Our juniors play in the Southport & District Junior Cricket League and train every Tuesday evening at 6:30pm during the summer months.
We are actively seeking new players - all age groups. If you're interested, please give us a call on 01695 723678 or email to discuss further. Please come and have a look at our facilities - all are welcome.
We are affiliated to the Lancashire Cricket Board and are ECB 'Clubmark' accredited. Skelmersdale CC is committed to improvement and development at all levels and abilities. Furthermore, we enable all members to enjoy regular cricket in a safe and family friendly environment.
Local schools are welcome to use our facilities too, so please telephone on 01695 723678 or email for more details.

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:
