Situated in the village of Smalley in Derbyshire, Stainsby Hall Cricket Club is an ECB Clubmark Accredited Club that has two senior Saturday sides in the Derbyshire County Cricket League and one senior Sunday side in the Newark Cricket Alliance. We also have a thriving and ever-expanding junior section with teams from Kwik to U15 level. Founded in 1863, we celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Club in 2013 and look forward to many more years of cricket at our lovely ground.
The 1st XI play in Division 1 of the Derbyshire County Cricket League and the 2nd XI play in Division 6N. The Sunday XI were champions of their division in their very first season in the Newark Cricket Alliance and will play in Division 5 in 2014
We are always on the lookout for new players and members of all ages and abilities to join our Club. Please see the About Us section of the website for more details of how to join.
The David Smyth Memorial Scoreboard
After the sudden death of David Smyth from cancer during the 2013 season, it was decided by the Committee that the best way to honour his memory was to erect a new electronic scoreboard in his memory. This will be in place by the start of the 2014 season and will be a great asset to the Club. David’s memory will live on with a dedicated plaque and housing for the scoreboard having a permanent place on the ground.
In order to make this possible it has been decided to accept donations in his memory to help fund this project. The donations made will be split 50:50 between the scoreboard fund and the Balls to Cancer Charity. Balls to Cancer is a charity that raises money for the awareness and education of all male cancers including testicular cancer that David died of. All donations of any size will be gratefully received in order to help us honour this great Clubman and friend’s memory whilst helping a very worthwhile charity.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
