Shrewsbury sets out to be one of the best cricket schools in the country. In the summer, our cricketers have the privilege of playing on the fields described by the cricket-writer Sir Neville Cardus as "the most beautiful playing fields in the world, spreading and imperceptibly mingling with the pasture land of Shropshire". And in the winter, cricket training has been transformed by our truly world class indoor cricket centre.  Coaching is provided by teaching staff, the full-time cricket professional and visiting coaches.

Shrewsbury regularly fields 13 teams across all age groups and also has a flourishing House programme to enable boys and girls of all abilities to play.  Every two years the U15s and 1st XI tour abroad and recent destinations have included the UAE (2017- U15 XI only), UAE and South Africa (2014), South Africa (2012), Dubai and Australia (2010), Sri Lanka and Barbados. In April 2017, the U15s toured to the UAE. The U15 side have had considerable success in the Lord’s Taverners Colts Trophy in recent years. 

The culmination of the 1st XI season is the Silk Trophy.  This highly-coveted trophy is competed for by Shrewsbury, Eton, Oundle and an overseas touring side at the end of each summer term. In 2015 Shrewsbury won the Silk Trophy for the third year running - the only school to do so in the 25 years of the competition.

In 2013 Shrewsbury also achieved the unique distinction of winning the HMC National Schools Under-18 Twenty20 trophy and being declared joint winners of the School Sport Magazine Under-17 Cup and the ECB/ESCA Under-15 Twenty20 Championship. This is a feat unprecedented in school cricket. 

Old Salopians who currently playing county cricket include Joe Leach (Captain of Worcestershire), David Lloyd (Glamorgan), Alex Blofield (Worcestershire), Stephen Leach (Worcestershire), Rhaudhri Smieth (Glamorgan), Ed Barnard (Worcestershire), Oliver Westbury (Worcestershire). 

James Taylor (R 2003-08) played for Nottinghamshire and for England until a diagnosis of a serious heart condition sadly forced him to retire from a professional playing career in 2016.  James was a prolific batsman in his time at Shrewsbury and started receiving awards almost as soon as he entered the professional world; he was named as Wisden’s Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year for 2008. He made his England Test debut when he faced South Africa at Headingley in August 2012.


Any forthcoming cricket fixtures for the current term will be displayed below.
