About Shropshire County Cricket Club

On 28th June 1956 the members of Shropshire Cricket Association took the bold, but not unexpected, decision to disband their own organisation and to establish in its place a County Cricket Club which would apply for entry to the Minor Counties Championship the following season.

The Association had itself been founded less than six years earlier with exactly this aim in mind, intended to restore the cricketing status that had been lost when the original County Club, although quickly re-formed as The Gentlemen of Shropshire CC, was wound up in 1905.

Today Shropshire County Cricket Club competes in the Western Division of the Minor Counties Cricket Association (MCCA) Championship. The division, made up of nine teams sees each team play six three day fixtures over the course of the season with each team completing home and away fixtures against each side every three years. Shropshire have won the Championship on one occasion in 1973 and the one day knockout trophy in 2010.
