Thanks to Crucible becoming the club’s new main sponsor we have received a massive boost for the forthcoming season . Crucible is opening a new branch in Chapeltown after acquiring Winkworth Estates. The estate agency’s £3000 sponsorship will provide brand new kit for the players and vital ongoing support for Thorncliffe's various teams.
Crucible is an independent, locally owned agency rooted in community service. All the company’s profits go to parent company South Yorkshire Housing Association to help older people and those with special needs to live independently.Chairman at Thorncliffe Cricket Club, Rob Hulley, said: “The association with Crucible Sales & Lettings brings the prospect of exciting new ventures and local events throughout the year and hopefully for many years to come.”

Welcome to Thorncliffe Cricket Club -
Thorncliffe Cricket Club was founded in 1870 and is located in Chapeltown north Sheffield.
Our goal is to provide the opportunity, environment and facilities to people of all ages and abilities to play cricket, giving all players the chance to reach their highest potential. We believe in playing competitive cricket in the true spirit of the game.
Wanting to play cricket? Are you a junior or senior? All players welcome. We have 4 senior teams, the 1st team and 2nd teams play in the South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League and the Sunday teams play in the Barnsley & District Cricket League. We have junior teams at Under 9's, U11's, U13's, U15's, and U17's, which play in the Ben Jessop Junior Cricket League.
We are a Clubmark registered club which is an accreditation given by the England & Wales Cricket Board to clubs which provide a safe environment for all junior cricketers.
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:
