170 Not Out
Sedgefield Cricket Club recently celebrated its 170th birthday with an open evening at its Station Road ground. Cricket is known to have been played on the site since 1849. At that time the land was part of the Sedgefield holdings of Ramsden estates and was left in trust to Sedgefield Cricket Club by Captain Ramsden in 1849 to facilitate cricketing activities for the community.

The club’s first team currently plays in Division One of the North Yorkshire South Durham League, following promotion last year. Recent years have seen an increase in participation in cricket at all levels, particular in the youth sectors for boys and for girls. Extensive improvements have been made to the pavilion, enhancing the facilities for both players and social members while collaborations with other sports teams such as Sedgefield Rugby Union Club have raised the profile of the club and increased participation in both the sporting and social activities on offer.

Despite the weather thwarting the evening’s junior coaching, Sedgefield Cricket Club celebrated its 170th anniversary last month in style, with a packed clubhouse enjoying live music and the official opening of the new ‘1849 Bar’.

The evening also presented an opportunity for members and friends to raise a glass in memory of Duncan Moss who very sadly died a few days beforehand. Duncan, one of the nicest people around, was the epitome of a “club man”, who for over 30 years or so served as a player, umpire, scorer, and, most recently, chairman. It is no understatement to say that he devoted his life to the club. He’ll be both badly missed and fondly remembered.

Main tasks to focus on over the next few months:-
🌿 Undergrowth clearing around the trees - by slashing weeds and leaving the weeds as mulch or by pulling weeds and removing them from the base of the trees.
🌿 Pulling the plant competition from out of the plastic sleeves e.g grass, nettles.
🌿 Litter picking.
🌿 As undergrowth gets bigger, clearing pathways among the trees is useful.
