Welcome to our home page - Newborough is a friendly club with good ambition and a brand new pavilion. We will be playing our Saturday 1st X1 cricket in Tucker Gardner Division 2 again in 2016 and will be back in Rutland Division 2 on Sundays having gone through Rutland Division 3 undefeated in 2015. We will be using this team as an opportunity to give 1st team cricket to 2nd team players as part of the development process that will end up with Saturday 1st team cricket. Our 2nd X1 will be playing in Hunts Division 3 again in 2016 having secured promotion from Division 4 in 2015 and on Sundays we will be in Rutland Division 6 where we intend to give some of our under 13's a chance to experience adult cricket without too much pressure. In terms of youth cricket 2016 will be our 5th season and we will be running teams at u-9; u-11; u-13 and u-15 age groups under the watchful eye of our Level 2 coaches and team of assistants. New players of all ages and ability are welcome to come along to winter nets, with any interested people contacting Chairman John Harris. You can also follow us on Twitter or on Facebook if you wish.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:

In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
