CRICKET
AT THE NORTHERN

CRICKET

Some say that Northern is a perfect place to play cricket. Against a beautiful backdrop of open farmland just outside Crosby, Northern’s acres provide the setting for playing and watching cricket, with three pitches maintained to the highest standards by a full-time groundsman.

There are five teams involved in Liverpool Competition cricket on a Saturday, and a Sunday team playing friendly fixtures. There are also Sunday cup fixtures for the first, second and third teams, plus a strong junior cricket section. We also run the hugely popular “Friday Night Cricket Smash” for kids – click here for details.

The Northern Club have been announced as the 2019 Lancashire Cricket Foundation’ Club of the year winners during the star-studded Lancashire End of Season Awards ceremony.  Lancashire Foundation works across the North West to develop and deliver a range of projects, programmes and events designed to engage, excite, inspire and improve individuals and communities through cricket, with the aim of getting more people involved in the game.

Our ladies & womens section have 2 softball teams that participate in both the ECB softball festivals, as well the L&DCC League competition. At present, we have between 20-30 ladies who take part in training and matches.

Our vision is to use the success of our Northern Ladies to inspire more girls to join our already thriving junior section, and inspire them to take up both softball & hardball (u11). As of the end of 2021, we have a strong 20 girls from u9 to u13.

Here at the Northern Club we believe that it is out responsibility to all players and parents to provide a pathway to success, and it is the Northern Development Model that will support our vision moving forward. Download a copy of our development model, below.

The main pitch is used for first and second team matches, and also by Lancashire for county second team and youth representative matches.

Two more pitches, with their own changing facilities, are used for a variety of fixtures – including corporate matches.

Northern are founder members of the Liverpool Cricket Competition, and have been at the forefront of Merseyside cricket since 1859. The Liverpool Comp is the major club cricket league in Merseyside, Lancashire and the North West. The 1st team currently plays in the premier division (Liverpool and District Cricket Competition, ECB Premier League), the highest level of club cricket in the county.

In recent seasons, the 1st team has been ECB Premier League champions 3 times (most recently in 2021), reached the ECB National Club T20 final at Edgbaston in 2012, and won the LCB Lancashire Knockout at Old Trafford in 2013.

The cricket section organises social events during the season and in the close season, and makes the most of the excellent bar and catering facilities.

Northern holds ECB and Sport England Cricket Clubmark accreditation status. Icon sports are currently supplying our bespoke cricket clothes.
