Goldsborough Cricket Club

Welcome to Goldsborough Cricket Club

We are one of the premier clubs in the area fielding teams in the Nidderdale, Harrogate Evening and Whixley Leagues in summer, and the Harrogate indoor league in winter. We play friendly matches at home on some Sundays too. The club also runs three junior teams – under 9s, under 11s and under 13s.

We have an attractive ground in Goldsborough village, North Yorkshire with a great club house, bar, kitchen facilities and car park. Our club house is available to hire for events and parties.

The Secret Cricketer

In 2006, Goldsborough Cricket Club 2nds suffered the worst score in modern English recreational cricket. Their defeat to Dishforth Cricket Club resulted in ten of their batsmen getting out for a duck and the last man left stranded on zero. That year Dishforth went up a division, Goldsborough down a division. They've not met in a competitive match since.

In August 2011, NatWest staged a rematch giving Goldsborough a chance to win back some pride and Dishforth the opportunity to prove it wasn't a one off. To help Goldsborough avoid history repeating itself, NatWest gave them a secret weapon.... The Secret Cricketer.
