2023 will be a very special year for North Devon Cricket Club as they celebrate 200 years of willows and wickets.
The NDCC was founded in 1823 and moved to its current site in Instow in 1836. To mark this significant year in its history, the club is planning a number of events throughout 2023 as well as looking to build on a fourth place finish in the Tolchards Devon Cricket League this year.
The club currently boasts four senior teams competing in the Devon and North Devon Cricket Leagues, plus a thriving Colts section for the next generation of talent and the recently formed Tarka Ladies bringing women’s cricket to Instow.
The magnificent grounds are rightly regarded as some of the best in the South West. Located at the confluence of the rivers Taw and Torridge, the home of North Devon Cricket Club is a beautiful place.
The NDCC has represented so many fantastic players and figures over the past 200 years and recent graduates include England international Craig Overton, Australian batsman Chris Rogers and South African star Kyle Verryne.
Keep an eye on the club’s website and social media pages for updates on events in 2023 and cricket’s very special birthday.
