Honor Virtutis Praemium 1876
Welcome to the Wentworth Cricket Club ECB Play Cricket Website.
Wentworth CC are a long standing local community village cricket team with a history dating as far back as 1876 when the club was first founded. The team currently plays its home games in the SYSCL Division Four at Clayfield Lane in the centre of the beautiful village of Wentworth, the home of the famous and historic Wentworth Woodhouse, just outside Rotherham.
Wentworth CC Currently operates three teams. We have our first team who play on Saturdays in the SYSCL Division Four under captain Mark Limb. Our Second XI who play in Division Seven of the SYSCL under captain Dave Watson and we also operate a T20 midweek team who play in Division One of the Rotherham Midweek League under the captaincy of Chris Ferris.
Both our Saturday and Midweek teams have been quite successful in recent times with several promotions gained and league titles won on Saturdays as well as an appearance in the final of the Billy Oates cup in 2015. We have also reached the final of the cup in the midweek league on more than one occasion along with the league title in 2017.
The ground itself, which can be found just behind the Rockingham Arms pub, is one of the most stunning and picturesque grounds in the whole of South Yorkshire. On a hot and sunny summers day coupled with the local surroundings and scenery there are few better places to be.
Being on the small side the ground usually provides exciting high scoring games with some big hitting especially during the midweek T20 games.
The facilities at the ground are fantastic and include mobile nets, push on wicket covers and modern up to date sightscreens as well as a state of the art artificial wicket newly installed in 2016 so we are more than capable of providing good quality cricket on good wickets throughout the season. Whatever nature may throw at us.
It is at this point we must thank our generous sponsor Wentworth Garden Centre who are a successful family run business and have been at the heart of the village for over 25 years. We as a club are now very proud and honoured to associated with such a well known name and to carry that name on our playing shirts. We thank them for their continued support and look forwards to a long and successful partnership for both parties.
The aim as a team for the future is to continue our growth as a squad and improve upon our success on the field. The only way this can be done is to continually attract players to the club.
