Deaf Hill CC, Trimdon Grange FC

HER Description

NEHL - In this location stood a multi purpose recreation ground with a cricket ground, football ground, 3 tennis courts and a bowling green. There were 3 pavilions in total to accommodate the various sports, with cricket being played on the further east side.

The ground was developed in the 1900s/1910s on top of a former plantation, though had seemingly disappeared later in the century. Tenants included Deaf Hill CC, a cricket club formed by at least 1887 as per a contemporary report in the 1887 Hartlepool Northern Daily Mail, when they were in the process of seeking a new ground. It is unlikely this ground was in use until the 1900s.

Trimdon Grange FC were operating from at least the 1890s when a benefit football match was played for Mr Joseph Coward, who was off work for 7 or 8 months in 1898. They played against Wingate White Star, winning 2-1.
