Alvanley CC is a village cricket club based in Cheshire. It is suitably located within an hour transport from Manchester, Liverpool and North Wales.

The club runs three senior teams at the weekend, our 1st XI playing in Division 1 of the Cheshire County Cricket League (one division below premier). Our 2nd XI have achieved back to back promotions and will play in their 2nd XI Division One respectively.

Our league season runs from Saturday 22nd April til Saturday 16th September (22 games), with pre-season games we would be looking for an overseas to arrive early April and stay til the end of the season.

1st XI also compete in the CCCL Twenty20 competition which involves x3 Thursday evening games in a regional group stage. Our 1st XI made Quarter Finals of this competition in 2017 and 2018 just missing out on finals day.

The club competes in the National Village Cup, in 2021 we reach the National Final at Lord's which we unfortunately lost in a rain affected game. In 2022, aiming to go one better our run ended in the National Quarter Finals. We will looking to go again in 2023 to win this competition. Unfortunately the Village Cup does not allow overseas players to play in.

Once cup fixtures are known a decision will be made whether to enter the Cheshire Cup which overseas can play.

Alvanley CC runs junior sides from Under 7s to 15s, boasting approx. 150 kids coming to play and learn the game.

For the 2023 season we are looking for an overseas amateur to join our club as a playing member and also to help assist coaching juniors and women's members.

We are looking for an overseas with a UK passport or Ancestry Visa.

We cannot sign a player that is currently playing first class or professional cricket. The league also prevents clubs from signing Pathway Players which extends to regional, state or territory players from u18s and above.

If you need to apply for a relevant passport/Visa please remember to allow sufficient time.

We can offer flights, accommodation and help with sourcing work dependent on preference of the overseas and qualifications.

If interested please get in touch with background about yourself and any stats/footage. Thanks
