Located at The Maws on the Maynooth Road outside of Kilcock (just 20 minutes from the M50), North Kildare Cricket Club is a vibrant family orientated club which aims to cater for players of all ages and playing ability. We currently enter 4 men's teams and 2 women's teams into the Cricket Leinster leagues, playing both 20 over and 40-50 over cricket. With teams spread evenly across both the men's and women's leagues, we are able to offer a standard of cricket to suit all playing abilities. We also enter a side in the Development League.
Our Taverners side, who play 20 over social cricket usually on a Friday evening, is a great opportunity for players of all standards & ages to come together and enjoy the game, both on and off the field.
Our thriving junior section caters for players aged 5 and upwards, with a league team entered at Minor Boys (5th and 6th class) level, as well as under 11 age group blitzes and our hugely popular North Kildare Premier League, aimed at players aged under 10, which was a great success in its first year in 2018.
Our facilities include a large clubhouse with ample parking, changing rooms and a bar, and in 2018 we were proud to open our new three lane net training facility.
We run winter indoor training sessions for both adults and juniors during the off-season, usually during the months of February and March. Please check our website for details of upcoming sessions.
North Kildare Cricket Club was formed in 1928, originally known as the North Kildare Cricket and Tennis Club it was an amalgamation of clubs at Firmount (Clane) and Lucan. Membership and support for the new club came mainly from the Enfield, Dunboyne and Kilcock areas.
NKCC was affiliated to the Leinster Cricket Union in 1928 when a team was entered into the Intermediate League. The enormous interest shown in these early years was reflected by the addition of 2nd Team in 1928 and in 1930 the club achieved its greatest success of the period by winning the Intermediate Cup.
During the War Years the club experienced periods of inactivity, however in 1949 the club finished 8th from 10 in the Minor League. From this low point the progress over the next eight years was remarkable, promotion from Minor League through Junior and Intermediate to Senior II followed rapidly. During this period the club won the Minor and Junior Leagues in 1950 and 1955 respectively and reached the play-off of the Intermediate League in 1956.
The early 1960's saw a great upsurge of the club as a whole, money was raised, new members joined with playing pitches and Tennis Courts restored. Touring sides such as Oxfordshire and Grove Academy of England and Greenock from Scotland were entertained.
