Winners of 2015 Yorkshire Tea Challenge
Quarter-finalists of 2016 Royal London National Village Cup
Newtown Linford, Clubmark-accredited, plays in Division One of the Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket League, Second Team in Division Four and Third XI in Division Eight. We also operate a Sunday team, a Thursday League evening side and Under 10s, 11s, 13s, 15s & 17s.
NLCC has a very strong community link having a thriving Junior Section as evidenced by the number of junior age groups above but we have also run an ECB All Stars initiative and received further funding from ECB recently to run some free taster sessions for U12 girls within the community.
As well as this we run a ‘Village Cup’ over a number of summer evenings with teams comprised from the local community of ‘cricket enthusiasts’ not necessarily ‘players’ which has been an enormous success in enhancing our involvement with our host village.
A final string to our bow is that we won the Yorkshire Tea Great Cricket Tea Challenge in 2015 (judged by your very own MW Gatting OBE) when the Club’s match teas were officially crowned as the best in the country, and as a result hosted a game against the PCA Masters XI.
2019 marks Newtown Linford Cricket Club’s Centenary season and 100 years of cricket at Main Street in Leicestershire and our Committee has been working around the clock to organise a number of showcase events for the Club and local community.
