St Aulaye Cricket

Brief history: the club traces its origins to the first (known) organised cricket match in SW France between a team of visitors from London and the Bordeaux British Community in August 1981; we played Bordeaux regularly for several years and in 1983 we played Eymet for the first time at the St Aulaye stade.

In April 1997 the club was formally established as St Aulaye Cricket with a ground on the outskirts of the nearby village of Chenaud. The club plays a full part with other SW clubs in the french national league and Siddalls Cup and has a growing programme of matches with visiting clubs. Our junior section is a thriving part of the club. We also have a golf section (see below).

Playing surface and facilities: like all SW clubs we play on an artificial wicket, so spiked cricket shoes, golf shoes etc can’t be used. There is a small wooden pavilion and a toilet.

The main team 'St Aulaye Cricket' plays competitive league and cup games. 'The Casuals' is an entirely separate team, with a fixture list of friendlies open to members of all SW clubs and others, so visitors and occasionals ARE eligible to play.

In 2012 St Aulaye Cricket won 2 out of the 3 SW France competitions organised by ACCSO (the Association des Clubs de Cricket du Sud Ouest) Association des Clubs de Cricket du Sud Ouest. Also 4 of its Players played at National Level for France Cricket. France Cricket
