We are the longest-established cricket club within the city and have played under the SAME name since our foundation in 1896. We are an ECB Clubmark club and since 1910 we have played at the Hull and East Riding Sports Club on Chanterlands Avenue and share excellent playing and social facilities with football, badminton, squash and road running clubs.
We field 3 senior teams each weekend in the York and District Senior Cricket League and a Social side and we have a thriving junior section with softball and hard ball coaching for boys and girls aged 5-15 as well as competitive cricket with other clubs in the area.

The Under 13s went down to Sutton by 6 runs in this area's final of the ECB National Competition. We seemed to be coasting after keeping Sutton to 99-9 with Harry Holland 3-14 and a run out, Will Storr 2-17 and Matthew Cawley 2-21 but 21 wides were to prove our downfall in the end. Tom Douglas 31 and Harry Holland ( completing a fine individual game) 30 were both compulsory retired and no other player got into double figures as we finished on 93-9..
We gained some revenge when we beat them by 85 runs in the semi final of the East Yorkshire Knockout Cup. We were struggling at 16-4 but fine knocks from Will Storr 26 retired, Alex Markham 25 retired, Sam Laughton 24 and Will Sharpe 10 took us to a healthy 125. Tight bowling from Harry Holland 3-3 in 3 overs,Will Storr 1-6 in 3 overs and Ankit Chawla 1-3 in 3 overs and an assist in 2 run outs bowled out Sutton for just 41.
