Longridge Cricket & Social Club
The club was founded in 1865 and joined the local cricket league the Palace Shield in 1906.
Currently the club has 60 senior members and 170 children making up 16 teams that play (weather permitting) 7 days a week from April to September. The children’s ages, both boys and girls range from 9-19 years. The English Cricket Board (ECB) All Stars Program introduced in 2017, offers fun programmes for 5-8 year olds. This results in an additional 60 families on a Friday evening, socialising, having fun and creating a greater family atmosphere and environment at the club.
The club have been awarded the ECB clubmark quality accreditation and was voted Lancashire Cricket Club of the year in 2018. Last year also saw our 1st Xl promoted for the first time to the Northern Premier League along side teams like Blackpool, Leyland, Chorley, Barrow and Penrith.
Over the last 6 months extensive work and renovations have taken place on both cricket grounds either side of Chipping Road. The main Pavilion itself has also undergone a transformation in the form of new flooring and carpet, brand new tables and chairs, installation of sky sports and an updated bar that now has 7 pumped beers with a variety of new gins and wines available to members and non-members.
