Welcome to Helston Cricket Club
Helston CC is located in the heart of Helston on Clodgey Lane. We've been situated here at Beacon Parc since the 1960's. The club was previously based on Helston Downs, the site of Culdrose. We then relocated from here in 1947 to give way to the airfield, which meant a temporary move to a ground at Sithney common hill/Porthleven hill. We won the first county league in 1905 and repeated this feat the following season, before winning the league for a third time in 1908. The last time we were able to win the league was in 1924. We have also been lucky enough to win the coveted Vinter Cup on two occasions.
Our 1st XI will be out to have another positive season across all three competitions this year. A Vinter Cup Semi Final, 50/50 Cup Final defeat and a 4th placed Premier League finish in 2016 should give them plenty of optimism heading in to the year. Dan Jenkin will lead them again in 2017.
The 2nd XI, 2016 Division 4 West Champions, will be hoping to consolidate their place in Division 3 this year. Steve Hosking will captain the side whilst Matthew Crapp is out recovering from a shoulder injury.
The 3rd XI will compete in the newly formed Division 5 Atlantic Region. They achieved a very respectable mid table finish last season, and will give them plenty of encouragement heading in to the season.
Our Evening League XI will be captained by Mat Lee for the first time. They have a great history in the competition, I'm sure they will be hopeful of qualifying for the knockout stages once again.
Our ever growing youth setup will be hoping for another successful year. Our U11's, managed by Dave Roberts, are the current County Champions, many of which will have a chance to defend their crown again this year. The U13s will be managed by James Jenkin and the U15s by Sue Leathley.
Training nights for all Senior and Youth sides will be released shortly.
The Club have been extremely fortunate to receive some financial support over the winter in the form of grants. The Aviva Community Fund have generously awarded us with £1,000 for youth training equipment, whilst Helston Town Council have made £1,500 available for an upgrade on our current training facilities.
