A COMMUNITY CLUB
Over the years, the balance of cricket and being a place for the community has been the mainstay of the club. The current pavilion, dressing room and function rooms were built in 1986/7 after a fundraising campaign– with most of the development and building work done by volunteers in their spare time.
Under the direction of the new committee, the club has an ambitious vision to build a welcoming, relaxed and social environment for the community of Adlington to enjoy, and be the premier facility in the village for groups and events. Follow the ACC Facebook page @AdlingtonCC to keep up to date with the latest developments.
DEVELOPMENT AT ACC
Nurturing young talent is embedded in the ethos of ACC and in 2006 the Club was awarded ECB Clubmark Accreditation, which indicates our commitment to the development of cricket and to providing a safe environment for young people. Today, all coaching is undertaken by ECB qualified Coaches. We are also active members of Chorley Development Cricket Group.
