South Wales Premier Cricket League
The South Wales Premier Cricket League, also known as the SWALEC Premier Cricket League for sponsorship reasons, is the top level of competition for recreational club cricket in South Wales. The league was founded in 1999 as the South East Wales League, being renamed following its accreditation as an ECB Premier League in 2001.
There was another change in 2010, when a new Premier League was formed by taking the top five clubs from the 2009 South Wales Cricket League and the top five clubs from the 2009 South Wales Cricket Association. The original South Wales Cricket League was renamed as the Glamorgan and Monmouthshire Cricket League, and from 2016 was renamed again as the South East Wales Cricket League. It and the South Wales Cricket Association act as feeders to the South Wales Premier Cricket League. Before the 2015 season, the South Wales Premier Cricket League formed a Division Two by taking five further clubs from each of the two feeder leagues.
The teams competing in Division One for 2017 are: Ammanford, Bridgend Town, Cardiff, Mumbles, Neath, Newport, Penarth, Pontarddulais, Port Talbot Town, and Ynysygerwn.
