Founder members of the Greater Manchester Cricket League.
We have 2 senior teams and 3 junior teams all which compete in the GMCL. We are also active members of the Wigan & District Cricket Development Group, as well as boasting the highly acclaimed ECB clubmark status.
After a two year stint in the Southport & District Amateur Cricket League, winning the 1st XI Premier Division B League Title, Sandhurst Shield Cup Competition and the 2nd XI Pochin cup competition, the club joined the long standing Bolton Association for one season. Upon the demise of the Association Westleigh became founder members of the Greater Manchester Cricket League in 2016.
We are a friendly, local club who are always welcoming to new members. Simply come down to training on Tuesday evenings or enjoy watching quality senior league cricket on a Saturday afternoon throughout the summer. Find us on The Pingot, at the junction off Firs Lane and Wigan Road.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
