Cardiff CC is the oldest and remains one of the leading cricket clubs in South Wales. The Club runs four senior teams each Saturday and a midweek team which all play in the local leagues. There is a thriving junior section with teams at under 9, 11,13 and 15 with close links with local schools.The Club prides itself on its amateur status, excellent playing and training facilities and the fact that it is a family orientated club rooted in the local community.
The Club is delighted to have secured 4 trophies during the last seven days of the season; Welsh Cup, South Wales Premier League 1st and 2nd Division Championships and the Vale of Glamorgan Midweek T20 Cup. A brilliant end to a fabulous season. Well done to all involved.
