Located in Wrexham, North Wales, Brymbo CC was founded in 1888, originating as part of Brymbo Steelworks, which began steelmaking back in 1796 until it finally closed its doors in 1990. During that time Brymbo CC played its games on the steelworks’ working men’s social club pitch.
In 1978, the Sports Club, consisting of cricket, football, tennis squash and bowls, moved the short distance to a brand-new sports complex in the village of Tanyfron. The complex not only boasts magnificent sporting facilities but also a superb Social Club set up consisting of large bar, snooker room, small function lounge, large function room and full kitchen catering facilities.
Brymbo CC has full ECB (England & Wales Cricket Board) Clubmark accreditation and is affiliated to Cricket Wales.
ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs which shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means our club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their children.
Brymbo CC fields three senior teams in the North Wales Premier League, holding full ECB premier league cricket status, together with a midweek team in the Cheshire Midweek League. We also enter competitions such as the North Wales T20 Cup and the Flintshire Knockout Cup.
A number of the senior players have represented the County, North Wales and Wales at full international level.
The Club is proud of producing players who have gone on to play professional County Cricket.
Brymbo CC is extremely proud of the junior section which caters for youngsters from 5 - 17 years of age and fields representative teams at under 9, 11, 13 and 15. Juniors are coached by fully qualified ECB coaches.
Many of our youngsters have gone on to represent North East Wales, West of England, Wales & Glamorgan at various age groups.
The Club is also extremely proud of the young girls who are currently playing in the junior section and is keen to expand on this success by developing a ladies section, to enable them to progress in the game and a key focus in the future will be to attract more women into the game of cricket.
Our Club is always looking to encourage new members to join us, whether as a player -
