Penwortham Cricket Club was founded in 1880 and became a founder member of the Palace Shield competition in 1902. The Middleforth Green ground is situated in Lower Penwortham, 2 miles south of Preston, and has been our home since 1892.
We are a thriving and successful Cricket Club with Senior & Junior teams playing in the Moore & Smalley Palace Shield Competition. We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere for players and spectators alike.
At senior level we currently have four Saturday teams and one Sunday team. There is a vibrant Junior section, featuring both boys and girls, with teams at U10’s, U11's, U12’s, U13's, U15's and U17's.
We also run a weekly Kwik Cricket session for children aged from five years.
We are very proud of the fact that many of our senior players have been a product of our Junior section. As a ClubMark accredited organisation all our coaches undertake ECB approved courses.
Our 3rd XI play their home fixtures at Hutton Grammar School on Saturdays throughout the season, whilst our 4th XI play at Gillette Playing Fields, Limbrick, near Chorley. Our winter indoor nets for juniors & seniors are held in the school sports hall.
