Welcome to the SCCC web site for 2020! We hope you’ll enjoy exploring it again this year. You may have noticed a Twitter feed on the right hand side of the page. You don't have to access this site to see it, just follow us on Twitter. Take a look at the video as well for a good perspective of the Club's location.
Located in the heart of Scotland, Stirling County is a lively and welcoming cricket club, offering cricket for seniors, ladies and juniors of all levels of ability and experience.
Founded in 1862, the club can boast a long and successful history that spans more than 150 years. For over 100 years, the club played its cricket at Williamfield, near the centre of Stirling in Torbrex. In 2007 we made the move to a brand new ground on the outskirts of Stirling and have since enjoyed playing on some of the best cricketing facilities in Scotland.
If you live in the area and like what the club has to offer, why not come down to the ground or e-mail us at ContactUs@StirlingCountyCC.co.uk
For those cricketers looking for competitive league cricket, Stirling County fields two senior teams on a Saturday. The 1st and 2nd XIs play in the Western District Cricket Union (WDCU), with the 1st XI locking horns with teams in the WDCU's top league. In 2020 our 2nd XI will compete in the WDCU Division 2.
If Saturday league cricket isn't your thing, or if you simply can't play on Saturdays, then Stirling County also fields teams on a Sunday, which from 2017 will see us play against Strathmore & Perthshire Cricket Union sides in a Sunday League, and on a Wednesday evening (in the West Stirlingshire t20 competition).
We are also proud to run a ladies section that can boast a hugely successful history, having won the inaugural Woman's Scottish Cup in their debut season in 2010. The ladies section focuses on creating a supportive environment with the emphasis placed squarely on fun.

For a long time junior cricket at Stirling County has been a priority, with this emphasis on developing young cricketers allowing us to produce many successful junior sides and talented County players.
And junior cricket remains an important part of the club to this day. We run a hugely successful All Stars programme for 5-8 year olds as well as offering Kwik Cricket for older primary school children. On top of training on Friday nights, the club also enters teams into several Kwik Cricket festivals held throughout the summer. We also offer hard ball training and matches for under 12s (Junior 1) and under 14s (Junior 2). We have many talented under 16 players (Junior 3) and, although we haven't been running a J3 team over the previous few seasons, we like to encourage them to attend senior training and to play in the Wednesday and Sunday XIs.
Finally, the club actively engages with local primary and secondary schools to help bring the game to as many kids as possible.

At New Williamfield we enjoy excellent facilities, both on and off the field. We have two independent cricket fields, allowing two games to be played at the same time, and can offer grass and artificial practice areas. Off the field, our club house contains a bar and excellent social space, which is ideal for a variety of events, including parties and meetings.
