Club History

The club began to prosper and in the early 60s the club built its first ‘solid’ pavilion. This single storey building, constructed entirely by its members, replaced the old tin shed the players had been using.

During the 1970's and 80's, Wellington hosted Shropshire's Gillette and NatWest cup games, with Essex, Yorkshire, Surrey and Somerset all visiting the club. Shropshire continue to play minor county and NatWest preliminary round games at Wellington. In 1979 Wellington staged the first class match between a full India team and the Minor Counties.

In the 1980s and 90s Wellington has hosted many benefit or fund-raising games. These games bring many famous players to the club. The most recent being Yorkshire CC with Darren Gough, Martin Moxon, David Byas and Michael Bevan. These games not only provide exciting watchable cricket but also the best facilities in Shropshire to accommodate both the players and the viewing public.
