Senior cricket at Ashburton primarily encompasses our First XI and Second XI
which compete in the Devon Cricket League (DCL) on Saturdays (the main
cricket league in Devon). We also play about a dozen friendly fixtures against
a combination of local sides and touring sides and play a few internal matches.
These different sides mean we can offer a range of cricket from our First XI
playing a good, competitive standard of cricket and our other sides which
obviously play to win but where bringing on the cricketers of the future is
also a top priority.
Our First XI is captained by Ashley Berry and competes in C Division West
of the DCL. Our Second XI is captained by Chris Yeo and competes in the
new F Division West of the DCL.
After several years competing in the South Devon Cricket League, we have taken the decision to withdraw our Sunday XI from the league to play more friendlies against a mixture of local and touring sides.
30 businesses sponsored us more than £2,000 in 2016 - helping us purchase a new mobile net (above) with some money leftover to go towards new sightscreens.
