Worcestershire 50+

Link to Play-cricket for teams, fixtures and results here

The Worcestershire Cricket Board 50+ team (Over 50's) play competitive cricket in the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) 50+ Championship. This competition has been in place for over 20 years and provides competitive cricket for those club players of good standard and ex County players who wish to continue their cricket against old adversaries. The ECB 50+ Championship comprises 40 County and Minor County teams divided into 5 regions. Worcestershire is in the same region as Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire and Wales. Each team play against each other once a season in the preliminary round with the fixture reversed the following year. The top three of each region progress to the Knock Out rounds until two finalists play for the winning trophy at the end of the season. 

The competition has provided many club players the opportunity to play with their former heroes on the same cricket field. Such players as Rodney Cass (Essex & Worcestershire CCC), Roger Tolchard (Leicestershire CCC & England), Andy Murtagh (Hampshire CCC), Ted Hemsley (Worcestershire CCC) and Paul Pridgeon (Worcestershire CCC) have all represented the Worcestershire 50+ team in recent years.

The WCB 50+ team have undertaken many overseas tours in recent years, representing the Worcestershire Cricket Board in Senior and Vintage cricket festivals in Barbados, West Indies and Perth, Western Australia. The team has also toured Sydney, Australia, Chile & Argentina, South America, Canada, the USA and Cape Town, South Africa as well as Malta, Southern France and Majorca.

The 60+ team was formed in 2006, initially playing friendly matches before joining the Shepherd Neme Home Counties 60+ Championship in 2007. 

The Championship, now known as the Spitfire National 60+ Championship, has expanded over the intervening period now that the first XI competition will consist of 30 Counties divided into five groups with Worcestershire 1st XI playing in the Central group against Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire.  

In the 60+ second XI competition 15 teams will compete in three groups, with Worcestershire playing in the West group against Cheshire, Devon, Somerset and Wales.




Worcestershire 70+

Link to Play-cricket for teams, fixtures and results here

 The 70+ team was formed in 2011 and initially it was a joint team including some players from Hampshire, competing in the Spitfire 70+ League.

In 2012 Worcestershire competed as a single county team and Hampshire combined with Berkshire. Worcestershire had a very successful season, losing only one match, to Sussex, who narrowly beat Worcestershire to the league title by one point.
