Who are we?

Baglan Cricket Club was founded in 1952 as a small pub cricket team. We pride ourselves as being a diverse & inclusive club which plays an active part in the local community. The club is run totally by volunteers. We have two adult sides who play in the South Wales Cricket Association Division 1 & Division 6 & we enter the National Village Cup on an annual basis. We are endeavouring to establish boys & girls teams this season at U9 & U11 age groups together with recruiting a Ladies team. We also run the ECB Allstars & Dynamos programme for 5-8 yr old & 8-11 yr old children. A fantastic programme covering 8 weeks to introduce boys & girls to cricket, teaching them new skills, helping them make new friends & have a great time doing so. We also hold the prestigious ECB Clubmark which confirms that the club is sustainable, well run & provides the right safe, welcoming & inclusive environment for participants of all ages.       


Why are we crowdfunding?

With the addition of new members to the club we need to improve the facilities at the Evans Bevan Playing Fields & part of this initiative is the purchase of two new sight screens. From a safety perspective one end of the ground which has no sight screen at present has a row of large mature trees ringing the ground. Some balls bowled by our quicker bowlers from that end are very difficult to pick up against the dark background. 

How we’ll spend the money raised

Every Pound Helps

No donation is too small. Whether you're a fanatical cricket supporter or just a local person walking the dog on a sunny afternoon. Your contribution will help us to improve facilities.

Join us on this exciting journey a to help Baglan Cricket Club to achieve its goal of improving the facilities at a club that is inclusive & open to all.


Community impact

The club has been a key element of the close-knit Baglan Village over many years. Our plans for establishing the junior element at the club took a knock during the recent pandemic & it is hoped that through the Allstairs & Dynamos initiative we can establish a couple of junior teams. Recruitment of a ladies team from the village is ongoing & this would mean that 30+ players & together with 20+ Mums & Dads mainly from the village would attend the club on a weekly basis throughout the Summer.
