The club have three senior teams, two whom play on a Saturday with a third X1 on a Sunday and a junior section.

Our Riverside ground and facilities are considered one of the finest in the competition and we have staged a number of cup finals, inter-league matches, MCC fixtures and benefit matches over recent seasons.
As we fast approach the start of 2016 season preparations both on and off the field are underway. We are delighted to announce that three new young captains (all under the age of 22) will lead our senior teams this season; Jack Mansfield (1st X1), Liam Tingle (2nd X1) and George Thomas (Sunday X1) and it is important that all players, members and supporters get behind the new skippers and give them the best support possible.

Chairman - BAC/EE Preston Cricket Club
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
