Rossington Cricket Club

Rossington Cricket Club

The Cricket Club was formed in 1922 and was originally Rossington Main Cricket Club.  It was one of a number of sports clubs that thrived in the village, and still plays at the Welfare grounds.

Scott Wood of the Club gives below an up to date view of how the club is faring in 2016, and how they continue to support and develop new young players.  They are happy to see spectators when they are playing.  

Rossington CC still boasts between 30-40 playing club members and a host of volunteers.

The 1st XI have gained two promotions in just three years and now play in the second tier of the Pontefract & District Cricket League, with the 2nd XI competing in Division 7 West and a 3rd XI competing in the Barnsley & District Cricket League (Sundays).

The club features some top local talent with the majority of the 1st XI having all played area cricket as juniors, and all having played in much higher than current standards.

The ground is one of the best playing surfaces in all of South Yorkshire and beyond, and truly is something the entire village should be proud of.

However, attendances are frequently low and the club struggles financially. It would mean so much to the club and the sport if more locals began to take an interest in the team and helped the club on their way to further success.

The club sells cold and hot refreshments on match days at ridiculously low prices, with proceeds going a long way to raise much needed funds to grow our junior section and increase participation of the sport within the village.

Thanks for reading and we hope to start seeing a few new faces on match day.

We will be posting more photographs, and hopefully more history of the club, in due course
