About Us

Goldsborough Cricket Club is a village team from North Yorkshire, founded in 1842. Read more about the club’s history here.

We are one of the premier clubs in the area fielding teams in the Nidderdale, Harrogate Evening and Whixley Leagues in summer, and the Headingley and Leeds Sports Centre leagues in winter. We play friendly matches at home on most Sundays too. View our upcoming events and fixtures here.

As well as two senior teams, the club also runs three junior teams – under 9s, under 11s and under 13s.

We are always on the lookout for new players – find out more about joining us here.

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 too.

On 22nd July 2006 Goldsborough Cricket Club made the national sports headlines for all the wrong reasons! In a 2nd Team game against local rivals Dishforth, the club recorded the worst defeat in cricket since 1931. Every batsman was out for a duck and the team’s total score of 5 was all in extras! In 2011 Goldsborough had the chance to make amends for the defeat with a game sponsored by Natwest Cricket Force. Goldsborough won the rematch but had a secret weapon in the form of England Ashes winning captain Michael Vaughan playing in disguise for Goldsborough. Read more here.

If you would like to find out more about the club, become a sponsor or would like to enquire about hiring our club house, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
