Grace Dieu Park Cricket Club is a Leicestershire Cricket Club based behind the Bulls Head pub in the village of Thringstone. We are proud of the traditions and camaraderie that has developed over its life so far. The backbone of this success is GDPCC's group of dedicated, professional and enthusiastic group of members, who all enjoy their time together, both on and off the field.


Saturdays in 2013 will see both the 1st XI and 2nd XI teams playing in Division 4 and Division 8 of the Leicestershire Everads County Cricket League. On Sundays we have the Sunday XI competing in friendly fixtures against various local clubs. In the week the Club play host to a thriving Junior Cricket section from as young as 7yr olds to 17yr olds. So, whether you are the serious player looking for matches week-in and week-out, or just a casual 'slogger' looking for an occasional match and a few beers afterwards, GDPCC is the place for you.


This website has been designed for you, the player. With information on past and future fixtures including teams, results, stats, and running averages, this website allows you to track your performance after each match throughout the whole season.


We will also be using the website to confirm match availability and notify of team selections, with an automated email system linked to this process. So, welcome again. We look forward to seeing you at the nets and on the pitch soon!!
