MENHENIOT-LOOE CRICKET CLUB

Early historic records state that cricket was played in Menheniot as early as 1904 but is was not until 1932 that Menheniot Cricket Club was formed where they initially played on the recreation ground and moved to their present ground 'Fourgates' in 1955. They played club cricket until the mid-1970's when they joined the Cornwall Cricket League.

In 1998 they received funding from the Sports Lottery and other fund-holders to purchase the cricket ground and construct a new sports pavilion. 

In 2004 the club reached the regional final of the Village Cup where they were defeated at home by Werrington Cricket Club a previous finalist who reached Lord's in 1994.

In 2009 the cricket club amalgamated with Looe Cricket Club and was renamed the Menheniot Looe Cricket Club. The club currently has 3 Saturday teams in the Cornwall Cricket League, 2 junior teams who play in the West Devon League and a Ladies Softball team. It is through the ECB All Stars and Dynamos national programmes for age groups 5-8 and 8-11 respectively that we provide an 8 week package of jam-packed fun, activity and cricket skills development.
