North Devon Cricket Club History

The North Devon Cricket Club (NDCC) was founded in 1823 and moved to its current ground at Instow in 1836 where, apart from interludes for world wars, cricket has been played every season.

The Ground and Pavillion

The NDCC has a strong tradition of midweek cricket. In the past such sides as the MCC, Free Foresters, Eton Ramblers, Shrewsbury Saracens, Brasenose Strollers, South Oxford Amateurs, Devon Dumplings and the Frogs have all played here. We have also entertained county side and host a Devon Minor Counties game each year.

We currently play about 70 midweek games against touring sides from all over Britain and around the world.

A number of North Devon Cricket Club players have gone on to play minor counties, first class and international cricket. These have included home grown players as well as professionals who have honed their skills at Instow.
