About Us:

Welcome to Forton Cricket Club:

Forton Cricket Club are a progressive village club based on the South Staffordshire, Shropshire border with a thriving Junior Cricket Academy and teams playing competitive cricket from U9 to senior level. We directly benefit children, young people and adults from South Staffordshire who are members of our club at junior and senior levels. We run 2 Saturday senior teams, 1 Sunday mixed senior team and a Sunday ladies team.

Forton Cricket Academy is at the heart of the club and provides competitive cricket to over 50 children, we are currently Shropshire League Champions at U11 and U13 age groups and hold the U13’s County Cup. This season the club also picked up the prestigious ‘Junior Development Club Award for the County’. Our successful Academy offers ECB Level cricket coaching to U9, U11, U13, U15 & U16’s.

It is a great time to support children & young people, helping them become fantastic young adults through their participation in this sport.

We are the only club in the Newport area to have a womens hard ball team, something we are very proud of. We are currently experiencing an influx of new members and are working with the Shropshire Cricket Board to become the Cricket Hub for all Girls and Disability Cricket throughout the region.

The funds raised through this lottery will go towards supporting all aspects of Forton Cricket Club. This will include continued junior player development, help us buy new equipment, fund more coaches in line with increasing numbers, attract new members through the development of key areas around participation in this fantastic outdoor summer sport.

In summary, we want to ensure we can continue promoting everything positive cricket brings for South Staffs, Shropshire and surrounding areas in a safe, welcoming, friendly, all-inclusive environment. Our club is making a difference and directly benefitting all members of our local diverse communities.

We need your help so we can continue to offer and potentially expand our Junior Cricket Academy, our newly formed girls section, our senior mens and womens teams and our plans for future disability teams. 

Thank you for your support and good luck everyone! You are welcome to visit the club at any time to see how your lottery is helping children stay active. Please visit our website for more information at

Mr Nick Morris
