Riding Mill Cricket Club have been established since the late 1800’s and have been back at Broomhaugh since 1987 when the late Mr Dickinson provided the funds for the clubhouse and re-modelling of the outfield to allow the housing development at the top of whiteside bank.
Games are mostly played on a Sunday afternoon from around 2pm. There are a handful of 20 over night games played throughout the season. We play friendly fixtures against a mixture of opposition, always played in a good competitive yet friendly spirit. There is no selection policy, if someone wants to play then it’s as simple as putting your name in the book.
Tea is taken at around 5pm, anyone wishing to come and watch is more than welcome to pop in for a cup of tea and a cake.
We are keen to develop cricket in the village from a young age and are very keen that anyone wanting to play should come along or contact myself. However as our very own Bryan Stevens continues to demonstrate at the ripe old age of 77 that age is no barrier.
