Croxdale Colliery United, Croxdale CC

HER Description

NEHL - Croxdale Colliery United CC played their home games at this ground from the 1900s/1910s, and the ground closed around the 1930s when the whole plot was repurposed for multi-sports use alongside the football ground. The ground had very basic facilities, with a small pavilion in the north west corner and a shed in the north east. Like the football ground, facilities and AGM meetings were likely held in a local pub or club, though it is noted in 1914 Croxdale CC held their general meeting at the colliery offices.

The club played a regular annual match against the staff of Sedgefield Asylum, who also had their own purpose built ground (sedg04).

A Croxdale Cricket Club is also listed, who may be the same club or shared the ground.
