As one of the largest university cricket clubs in the country, the Exeter University Men's Cricket Club (EUMCC) offers an unrivalled cricketing experience for players of all abilities. From the first-class professional to the village green player, the club caters to all needs.
We currently have five squads, which includes four BUCS teams. Squads train throughout the winter at the University’s state of the art Sir Christopher Ondaatje Devon Cricket Centre, under the watchful eye of a specialist coaching team before embarking on an intensive pre-season programme in the run-up to the outdoor season. We ranked in BUCS as the third-highest cricket club in outdoor cricket and second in indoor for the 2018/19 season with the 1st XI winning the BUCS Southern Prem, and the National Premier Trophy. On top of these two successes, the 1st XI triumphed in the National Premier promotion fixture against Southampton Solent confirming our return to the top flight of University League cricket.
Before a stop to all BUCS sport occurred due to the impacts of Covid-19 we carried on our winning ways in 2019/20, securing the BUCS National Indoor Champions title.
Despite these on-field successes, so much of what we do as a club happens off the pitch. Year on year we organise and take part in countless charity, and fundraising events in aid of causes that mean a great deal to us as individuals, as a club and part of the wider University community. The highlight of last year was raising over £9000 for Movember, where we witnessed countless kilometres covered cycling, running, rowing and erging as well as a few members braving the head shave! Our charity work didn’t stop there, with many members taking part in the Ashes run, raising money for Mind, Intensive Care Society and Cardiac Risk in the Young.
