Senior Men

Edinburgh Cricket Club has six senior men's sides and two men's veterans sides, providing cricket for guys of all ages, abilities and interests.

Playing

Edinburgh welcomes players of all ages and abilities. If you would like to play with the Burra, please come along to any/all of the sessions and speak to Director of Cricket, Jay Garoni (0407 005 621) or email edinburghcricketclub@gmail.com

The First XI, Second XI and Veterans XI play on the historic Brunswick Street Oval. The Third XI, Fourth XI and  play over the hill on the picturesque Alfred Crescent Oval, while our Fifth XI and One Day XI team play at Cox Oval, Yarra Bend.  

All senior men's, except the veterans sides, play on Saturday afternoon, beginning between 12:30pm (one day matches) and 1:00pm (two day matches) and finishing around 6:00pm.  The veterans play on Sundays from 1:00pm.

There is no minimum age restrictions for senior cricketers at Edinburgh, however, to ensure the safety and welfare of our young players, only juniors who display sufficient skills and ability are allowed to play seniors. The Fifth XI is a development squad, to provide juniors an opportunity to improve their skills in senior cricket and progress up the grades as they develop. All juniors bowlers are also bound by over restrictions to protect them from injury.  

There are no maximum age restrictions either but verterans must be over the age of 40.
