Plympton Bulldogs Footballers Cricket Club -
Not just for Footballers.
The Plympton Footballers Cricket Club was established in 1964, originally to provide the Bulldogs AFL footballers at the club something to do in the off season , hence the name "Plympton Footballers Cricket Club". We proudly retain the name, we accept all that love cricket to join the Bulldogs Cricket family.
The club started with a single team in Section Four of the Adelaide and Suburban Cricket Association, with instant success gaining a premiership and promotion in each of its first three years. The Club competed in Section One of the Association by the start of the 1968/69 season, and since then has never been relegated, winning premierships along the way ensuring the Plympton Footballers Cricket Club is one of the most respected Cricket Clubs in metropolitan Adelaide.
We currently have 40+ senior participants but reach out much further each week to members and supporters, as well as the above mentioned playing group through a subscribed email 'Mail-Out' which details Club results, club events and functions for players and supporters.
Our junior cricket program promotes learning the fundamentals of cricket, whilst ensuring our main aim of cricket is to enjoy the sport, have a bit of a hit, a catch and a bowl whilst being part of the Bulldog family. Our objective is to ensure that every player that kits up with the Plympton Footballers Cricket Club continues to love the game and that senior cricket is continuing to be a feature of their days once their junior playing days are completed.
In our desire to promote merit based talent and to foster the growth of all Cricketers, we encourage our Junior Cricketers to progress and develop through to senior cricket sides, under the guidance of captains and coaches; while still young enough to be playing in the junior cricket competitions.
