WELCOME TO GRIMSBY TOWN CRICKET CLUB
GTCC was founded in 1899. The club’s present ground is in an attractive setting at the end of Augusta Street, close to the heart of Grimsby. The club boasts a membership of more than 200, plus a school of excellence offering coaching and playing opportunities for in excess of 60 boys and girls from the local community. The club has several England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) or equivalent-status qualified coaches offering high-quality group and individual tuition in the game.
The first team plays in the prestigious Lincolnshire ECB Premier League and the club has further senior teams in the Saturday Lincolnshire County Cricket League and the North Lindsey Sunday League. In addition to week-end matches, the club hosts several teams playing in the local midweek leagues. Junior cricket is played by under-11, under-13 and under-15 teams in local leagues. Many of our senior and junior players have represented Lincolnshire at county level.
The Club also runs a unique Monday evening invitation “Cricket Knockout” competition played over seven weeks. This tournament is extremely popular with players and spectators alike, drawing crowds in excess of 500 on occasions. This competition has been running for 79 seasons and is a historical forerunner of the internationally-popular T20 form of cricket.
The club is active in community projects and supports many local charities in their work by staging matches and functions on the ground. Local schools use the club facilities for coaching and matches. During the season several specialised coaching schools and one day tournaments are held. These are staffed by our own coaches.
In the winter months the club hosts youth football teams.
