Founded in 1990, Preston Village Cricket Club has developed into one of the most friendly and hospitable clubs in Scotland. Over the last 24 years, we have risen from the bottom rung of Scottish cricket to our current position in the East of Scotland Cricket Association's Division 4 including winning both the inaugural ESCA President's Plate and East Lothian 6s competition. Based at the Polwarth Oval in the centre of Prestonpans, Preston Village offer cricketers with any or none previous experience the chance to play competitive and friendly cricket throughout the week.
Since 2004, Preston Village have been offering opportunities for local boys and girls to play cricket under the guise of the Preston Village Panthers. With the aid of the East Lothian youth development officer and Active Schools programme, Preston Village are able to provide cricketing opportunities to more youngsters. Today, the Panthers offer in-school coaching to local primary and high school children and an after-school club which continues throughout the school summer holiday period. In 2014 we were accepted into the Cricket Scotland TOPClub development programme at the active level with plans in place to progress through the remaining levels.
Off the field, Preston Village have a thriving social element. The base for the off-field activities is the club's main sponsor: The Prestoungrange Gothenburg. The Gothenburg is also a first class venue for entertainment and dining and is well worth a visit in either our company or independently and is a key part of the Preston Village network.
