Weston-super-Mare Cricket Club is an amateur cricket club based in the town of Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, England. Since the clubs formation in 1845, they have nurtured a number of players who have gone on to play for Somerset County Cricket Club and a select few who have gone on to play for the England Cricket Team. The first team currently play in the West of England Premier League, an ECB Premier League, the highest level of recreational club cricket in England and Wales.

The club's finest hour came in 1986, when they were runners-up in the ECB National Club Cricket Championship, losing to Stourbridge at Lord's.

The club's home matches are played at the Devonshire Park Ground in Weston-super-Mare, which has hosted two List A matches involving Somerset in the John Player League, and several other matches involving Somerset's Second XI.[1]
