Welcome to the SCCC Website
Welcome to the SCCC web site for 2016! 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 three senior teams on a Saturday. The 1st and 2nd XIs play in the Western Districty Cricket Union (WDCU), with the 1st XI locking horns with teams in the WDCU's second top league. The 3rd XI play their cricket on the other side of the country, competing in the East of Scotland Cricket Association's Division 5.
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 (playing against local teams in friendly matches) and on a Wednesday evening (in the West Stirlingshire t20 competition).
We are also proud to boast a thriving ladies set-up that has produced a hugely successful Ladies team, winners of the inaugural Woman's Scottish Cup in their debut season in 2010.

For a long time junior cricket at Stirling County has been a priority, with this emphasis on developing young cricketers producing many successful junior sides and talented County players.
Today, junior cricket remains an important part of the club. We offer Kwik Cricket for primary school children and run hard ball cricket for under 11s and under 13s. Although we have many talented under 15s, we like to encourage them to attend senior training and to play in the Wednesday XI, which ties in with the junior training nights.
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.
