Established in 1896
About the Club ...
Our club is located in Brailsford, in the Derbyshire Dales halfway between Ashbourne and Derby. We have two picturesque traditional village grounds one at Pools Head Brailsford and the other at Osmaston Polo Ground, a couple of miles away in Osmaston village.
The club was established in 1896 and was the heart of the Brailsford and Ednaston communities. A great release for farmers each weekend, after they had been working the land hard all week and a real community event with mums, wives and girlfriends traditionally making tea for both sides.
Today the club have 3 senior teams competing in the Derbyshire County League: the 1st team playing in Division 3, the 2nd team in Division 6 South and the 3rd team in Division 9 South.
The club have recently been accredited with the ECB ClubMark and have a thriving Junior Section for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 17 - with teams playing in the Derby & District Junior Cricket League. The club has achieved Grade A ground status and the facilities include a fully licensed bar with egular social events organised throughout the year.
New members ... either playing, umpires, scorers, coaches, social or anyone just keen to be involved in a local sports club are most welcome.

Cricket is a great form of exercise for people irrespective of age or gender and a social event that brings people together.
Our aim is to offer a fun environment for everyone to play, learn. practice and enjoy cricket. 'Taking part' is one of our primary goals but, if you show the necessary commitment and the skills to progress your game further, we have a great group of ECB trained coaches to help you achieve what ever level you can. You will find support and encouragement everywhere in the club ... the rest is up to you.
We have a thriving junior membership and plans are in place to deliver amended ECB All Stars and Dynamo programmes for the 4 to 11 years age group along with an academy to take young cricketers from the Junior Section right through to the Seniors.
Our primary objective is to expand membership, which brings 'new blood' into the club along with a surge of new enthusiasm to maintain and develop the ground and facilities and to bring new vigour to helping to raise the necessary funds to achieve these objectives.
