* SOMERSET CLUB OF THE YEAR 2013 *
* WEPL SOMERSET PREM CHAMPIONS 2013 *
Formed in 1920, exciting times lay ahead for this ambitious and thriving village cricket club. Current ground located on the edge of Bridgwater/Wembdon/Chilton Trinity.
The club is due to move back into the heart of Wembdon after some 50 years away with construction of a £2million new state of the art venue due to start in 2014.
Wembdon runs four Saturday XI competing in the West of England Premier League and Somerset Cricket League.
On a Sunday we compete in the Taunton & District Sunday League.
Our Ladies XI still in its infancy competes in the Somerset Ladies League.
We are proud and privileged to have a thriving and successful junior section. We provide cricket for boys and girls from the age of 5 starting with the ‘Wembdon Minis’. We enter sides into the Taunton and District Youth League at Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15. All of whom receive quality coaching from a number of ECB Qualified Coaches.
Wembdon Cricket Club is Club Mark Accredited and a Chance to Shine club.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
