Wales National County








Captains: Sam Pearce (White Ball), Cam Herring (Red Ball)

Head Coaches: Darren Thomas (White Ball), Brad Wadlan (Red Ball)

Wales National County (WNC) is one of twenty National Counties that form the pinnacle of the recreational game across England and Wales, as part of the National Counties Cricket Association (NCCA).  In 2019 the Minor Counties Cricket Association became the NCCA after a proud 124 year history with the aim of improving the competitive landscape and its profile.

Wales compete across the NCCA T20 Cup, the NCCA One Day Trophy (50 Over) and NCCA 3 Day Championship (currently Division 2 of the Western Group). We have a proud history of being an established National Counties side since 1988, and players and coaching staff remain eager to clinch our first silverware.
