HER Description

NEHL - The cricket ground at Roseworth Terrace is one of the longest continually running grounds in the area. The ground was first bedded in in 1865, a year after Bulman Village CC were founded, and continued under this guise until 1882. At this time, the club became South Northumberland CC which it has maintained ever since (though is now coined the South North Bulls).

Tennis tournaments have also been played at the ground, as well as county hockey matches in the 80s and 90s (https://www.southnorth.co.uk/cricket/club-history/). Youth internationals as well as county cricket matches have been played here.
