An introduction to The Northern Cricket Society
The Northern Cricket Society has been around since 1948 and is still going strong, continuing to provide members with Winter Speaker Evenings (five in all from October to April – all in the Long Room at Headingley on the first Tuesday of the month, commencing at 7.45pm, but two by Zoom- see list below), additional speakers at both a Winter Luncheon and a Spring Evening Dinner whilst also organising a team for the well-known annual Boxing Day match (at North Leeds CC) and producing an annual booklet. We are an active group!
The Winter Speaker Evenings are, of course, at the very heart of the society and they provide members with the opportunity to see and hear a variety of cricket figures and also ask them questions.
Cricket societies allow enthusiasts the chance to meet up with fellow-minded people and maintain their interest in the summer sport throughout the long winter months. Please come and join the Northern Cricket Society!
