Medomsley CC

HER Description

Cricket has been held at Medomsley since 1869, though this cricket ground was first recorded around 1900, in use by Medomsley CC. In the 1890s, it was oreviously open land with a small pond in the centre of it, deeming it unusable for sports which reliably informs us cricket was played elsewhere in the village at this point.

There was a small pavilion in the south west end of the field, which was connected by footpath to Derwent Colliery and the main lane south. An application was made to be part of the Tyneside League in 1929, after previously winning the Tanfield Nursing Cup and playing well in the Hornet Cup.

The field was in use until at least the mid 20th century.
