Do you play cricket ? Then why not come along to Aberdeenshire Cricket Club – we have four senior teams (SNCL Premier, Strathmore Union, Grade 1, Grade 4) and junior teams (kwik cricket, U11, U13, U15 and U17). Senior outdoor nets will be held every Tuesday and Thursday between 6pm and 8pm.

Although teams played as “Aberdeenshire” as early as 1848, the birth of Aberdeenshire Cricket Club took place in April 1857 at a public meeting held in “The Aberdeen Hotel”. The £60 raised then enabled the founding spirit, James Forbes Lumsden, to lease and prepare a cricket ground at Queen’s Cross to be called the Albyn Place Ground. Within two seasons the Club was established enough to entertain Grange C.C. and to employ its first professional: Harry Lillywhite.
