Tynemouth Cricket Club was founded in 1847 and has a long history of playing cricket in Northumberland. In 2000 we joined the newly formed North East Premier League and have been competing in this league ever since. We run 4 teams on a weekend, 1st 2nd and 3rd (Sunday) in the NEPL and we also run a 3rd team on a Saturday who play in the first division of the Northumberland Cricket League. We also have a midweek team competing in the C Division of the Northumberland and Tyneside Senior League.
We are proud of our junior set up at the club and this is the breeding ground for many of the senior players at the club. We currently have teams at U18, U15, U13 and U11 as well as running an induction group. We also have a ladies team who compete in the Northumberland Ladies Cricket League.
Tynemouth CC has an existing website at http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/tynemouthcc/ and you can follow us on twitter @TynemouthCC
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.
The four themes are:
