The Yorkshire County Cricket Club has signed a ten year agreement with Scarborough Cricket Club to continue playing First-Class and List A cricket at North Marine Road.

Scarborough, which has staged 256 First-Class and 92 List A matches, will continue to host ten days of cricket per year providing the county structure remains the same. The ten days will comprise of two First-Class and two List A matches.

The new agreement, which comes into force this summer, comes off the back of Scarborough’s Town Deal which will see the cricket club receive up to £250,000. This money will be used to make significant improvements over two phases.

Phase one will see the refurbishment of the North Stand and Trafalgar End toilets, including a new accessible toilet. Later in the year, phase two will commence with the renovation of the West Stand. This will include new seating, the installation of new bar facilities and female changing rooms. Two hybrid pitches will be inserted to ensure that the ground will become a hub in the area for junior boys and girls cricket, particularly for those in deprived areas.

Mark Arthur, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Chief Executive said: “This is great news for both clubs and our Members who attend Scarborough each summer.

“This ongoing relationship and commitment to playing ten days of cricket at Scarborough will enable the much-loved ground to continually improve facilities within their financial capabilities.

“North Marine Road is the jewel in the crown for county cricket. Yorkshire’s members and visiting members alike love to watch cricket at this unique ground.

“We were disappointed not to host any cricket at Scarborough in 2020 due to COVID, however, our next match there will be against Lancashire in the county championship, a game that we believe will attract the largest county crowd in recent years.”
