Worsley Cricket Club was founded in 1846 by the 1st Earl Ellesmere as one of the ways of improving the lot of his estate workers and those involved in building St Mark’s Church. Apart from during WW1 cricket has been played on the ground continuously in both a friendly and competitive capacity. The club has had two other grounds but has been on its current delightful plot just through the trees off Walkden Road since the late 1800’s.

We are proud to be founder members of the Greater Manchester Cricket League. 

We have been awarded ECB Clubmark status. Our 1st and 2nd X1s play league matches on Saturdays and cup matches on Sundays. We also have an An X1 that plays on Sundays. Our junior teams play midweek in the evenings. 

On the look out for a new club? We are always happy to welcome new players. Feel free to come down to a practice session (Tuesday evenings for seniors, Friday evening for juniors).

The cricket section also has a separate web site where you can find further details at:
