Northop Hall Cricket Club is situated at the western end of Northop Hall village in the North East Wales county of Flintshire.  When the mail service to Ireland was first set up in the 1700s, Northop Hall was on the original coaching route from Chester to Holyhead.

The cricket club, however, was established in 1908 on the field in Smithy Lane where it is to be found today.

The club plays its senior cricket in the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition (LDCC) which is one of the ECB Premier Leagues.  The LDCC embraces clubs from Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and North Wales.

The club has been a member of the LDCC since its inception as a Premier League with its 1st and 2nd sides playing in the Saturday divisions.  The 3rd XI plays in the competition’s Sunday leagues and this team is very much the development side for the up and coming players from our junior section.

The club has ECB ClubMark accreditation which, in essence, means that it is a totally safe environment for children and vulnerable adults.  All its coaches are ECB qualified and carry CRB clearance which is an essential part of the ClubMark recognition.

The club is very proud of its youth policy and programme.  It provides coaching for all its youngsters, both male and female, throughout the year and competitive cricket in the cricket season in both the North East Wales competitions and those provided by the LDCC.  The age groups at which these competitions are run are at under 9, 11, 13 and 15 and some knockout competitions for the older players up to under 21 years of age.  (The age groups are in line with the day school methods of calculation with ages being those at 31st August in the year preceding that in which they play.)  The youngsters are also eligible to play representative games for both North East Wales and the LDCC with matches being arranged against other county and league sides.

 ClubMark accreditation also means that membership is available to all who have an interest in the game of cricket, this interest being in all aspects of the game be it playing, coaching, officiating (either as an umpire or scorer) assisting in the running of the club or just coming along to watch.

The function room is available for hire for parties, business meetings, receptions, christenings, etc.

The season was finished off with a presentation and race night in the club house.  The accumulated fine money prompted the purchase of seemingly endless jugs of lager which were thirstily consumed by the players between the bets on the horses.  A superb evening during which the club made over £400.

Paul Higginson, in addressing the members stated, that the committee had thought it to be long overdue to return to the practice of making presentations to those deemed to have served the club best in various roles during the season.  The following awards were then made:-

1st XI Player of the Year – Will Higginson

2nd XI Player of the Year – Dave Hodgson

3rd XI Player of the Year – Robbie Rimmington.

Clubman of the Year – Kumar Kurukkal.

Special presentations made to:-

  The scorers Myra Isterling & Louise Southern without whom the game cannot be played.

  George Groves & Terry Littler for their work on the ground in making it such a wonderful place to play.

   Ray Joy for his time and expertise in rebuilding the scorebox.
