We know, from records in the village, that cricket has been played in Spofforth since at least 1854 and it is likely therefore that our club is one of the oldest in the area.
The club was a founder member of the Wetherby League just after the end of the First World War and after a short spell in the Harrogate League returned to the Wetherby League in the mid to late 1950’s. For the first few years the club survived in the lower divisions before winning the 2nd division championship in 1961 and has remained in the first division since that time. No other present club has a longer unbroken run in the top division.
The late 1960s to the early 1980s were a golden age for the Club with the League Championship being won on no fewer than 9 occasions as well as numerous cup competitions. In 1973 the club went through the season unbeaten winning the League Championship and both Senior Cup competitions, a feat which we believe is unique in the League.
Commencing the season 2011 the club has made the decision to join the Nidderdale Amateur Cricket League and a new chapter in the history of the club begins.
To see faces and teams from the past why not drop into the clubhouse anytime during the season, you may well recognise some of the faces on display. If you have anything to add to the history of the club then please let us know and we’ll be more than happy to add it to these pages.
