Long Newton CC

HER Description

NEHL - Long Newton CC most likely played on a ground in this location, or just north west over the road. Their first recorded match was in October 1849 against Hurworth as recorded in the Yorkshire Gazette. It was played at the "Long Newton cricket ground", and was won by Long Newton by 26 runs. This is one of two likely locations, as there are two fields in the village which were maintained with small pavilion type buildings as shown on the first edition of the Ordnance Survey.

Long Newton CC was amalgamated with Elton CC in the 1890s.
