Welcome to the home page for Swinton Moorside Cricket Club - Members of the Bolton District Cricket Association
Swinton Moorside Cricket Club has been playing cricket in the area for over 100 years. We currently have four senior teams. 2014 is an exciting year for our club as we test ourselves against some new faces in our debut season as part of the Bolton District Cricket Association. Our First and Second XI’s will play every Saturday with the new addition of a 40 Over Team playing selected Sundays. In addition our Third XI will continue playing every Sunday in the North Manchester Cricket League.
2013 saw our 1st XI win 2012's rain delayed MDCA HC Smith Cup Final, retain the cup in the 2013 Final as well as retain the David Bates 20/20 Cup for a third consecutive year. All this as well as finishing narrow runners up in the league. Our 3rd XI enjoyed cup success also lifting the Stokes Cup with a comprehensive win over Greenmount CC.
The club runs a vibrant junior section with sides at under 9, 11, 13, 15 and 18 age groups. The club is committed to the development of cricket in the area, being an active member of Salford Youth Cricket Development group. All our coaches are ECB qualified and each year we actively seek to increase the number of internal coaches. The club actively seeks to integrate junior players into the senior sides.
We welcome players of all ages and abilities. Practice nights are Mondays for juniors and Tuesday for seniors.
