Welcome to the Sutton-in-Craven Cricket Club website!
Sutton-in-Craven Cricket Club was formed around 1902 by the Vicar, playing friendly matches. By 1904, under the Rev A R Light, they joined the "SKIPTON JUNIOR CRICKET LEAGUE". The team was known as Sutton Church, and to play for the team the members had to be church-goers.
Now the club is still going strong with two senior and four junior teams still playing on the same ground after 100 years. We have an active junior section providing the opportunity for youngsters of all age groups to get involved in cricket.
In 2009 the club achieved the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Clubmark accreditation, the first club in the Craven League to achieve this recognition. This accreditation recognises good club management and child welfare practices. We have maintained this standard to the present day.
In June 2016 the club officially opened our new clubhouse, the culmination of much hard work and effort to replace our playing and social facilities that had stood since the 1930's.
On our website you will be able to find information on the teams, league tables, live scoring , how to hire the pavilion and much more.
