Welcome to Newton Poppleford Cricket Club


Newton Poppleford Cricket Club

We like to think we are a friendly and sociable East Devon Village Cricket Club who play matches on Thursday evenings (20/20) and Sunday afternoons (40 over).
We do not play League Cricket during the summer but some of us play in the Sidmouth Indoor League during the winter. We are kindly sponsored by our local pub -- The Cannon Inn -- where hot food is provided after the match and where a fine selection of beers and ales can be sampled......

We don`t take ourselves too seriously but really enjoy playing cricket in the way it is meant to be played. We only sledge our own players!

This website contains all the club's recent seasons, including fixtures, match reports, player profiles and averages and is kindly sponsored by local businesses so please take a look at their websites in the top banner.Our fixtures for 2020 are almost complete, but if you are a member of a team that would like to arrange a fixture with us, please contact the fixtures secretary through the contacts page above.Touring sides are most welcome but please note, if you are looking for a fixture in 2020, please check our fixtures page, if we have a match for that day then we cannot accommodate you, sorry. We also do not usually play on Saturdays as we now have a local league side that uses our pitch.

If you live locally we are always looking for more players - your standard is not important - just bring your enthusiasm.If anyone is interested in being our resident Umpire or helping out with scoring - please contact us.


Thanks for looking,
Richard Coombs
