Welcome to our club...
From quiet beginnings way back in 1995, Shaldon Optimists Cricket Club (SOCC) is now further inspired by its exciting successes on the wicket and with the wonderful swelling of ranks within the club itself. We continue to field four exciting colt teams and three adult sides. Yet, regardless of our increasing size, we importantly remain a family orientated club where we warmly welcome new members and enjoy the social side of membership.
The Optimists continue to build both inside and outside the boundary rope, with 2016 bringing a fifth promotion (and second Championship) to the club, this time for the 1st XI. 2017 will again see all three senior sides play in the Devon Cricket League. To read a little more about progress over the last few years, see here..
We will also be fielding a number of colts sides in 2017, including a new initiative to encourage new cricketers (and their families) into the great game we all enjoy, All Stars Cricket. By singing up, new young cricketers can get a free kit bag including a bat! More information will be coming soon.
Please contact any of the committee members on our contacts page to get more details on when and where you can join in or check us out, with no pressure or commitment needed.
2017 promises to be another great summer with the Optimists!
