Welcome to Folkestone Cricket Club
Folkestone Cricket Club run teams every week for players of all ages and abilities.
In 2013 the club moved to it's stunning new Clubhouse and Sports Hall, an extensive redevelopment of the County Ground at Cheriton Road funded by a donation from the Roger De Haan Charitable Foundation.
Known as Three Hills Park, the new facility provides a Centre of Excellence for Cricket, Hockey and Netball - creating one of the finest Sports Venues in the South East of England.
The history of FCC shows that the club has provided talented players for 153 years. In the long line of players that have played for Kent in recent years Robbie Joseph, Geraint Jones & James Tredwell have carried the club colours forward with pride, and have played a part in coaching here.
The First & Second XI play every Saturday
in Divisions 1 & 2 of the Kent Cricket League. The Third team also
play on a Saturday in the Kent Regional League and we also have a 4th
team which will compete in the KRL next season.
On Sundays we play in the Lords East Kent League where our team is made up by our seniors and colts.
We run Colts teams in the following age groups:- Under 11s, Under 13s and Under 15s.
All teams play competitive cricket in the Saxon Shore League. The U11s and U13s play on Sunday mornings whilst the U15s play mostly on Tuesday evenings.
New players young and old are welcome.

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:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
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:
