PRESTON CRICKET CLUB

Founded: 1821. Joined Northern League: 1953

Preston CC is one of the oldest cricket clubs in the world. The club played on three different grounds at the Marsh near Ashton, Penwortham Holme and Penwortham Marsh before establishing West Cliff in 1859.

Preston joined the Liverpool Competition in 1947 after previously having a club policy of participating only in friendly fixtures. After missing the inaugural Northern League season they became members of the league in 1953.

Preston were joint champions in 1967 and won the title outright in 1970 and 1983 and were division two champions in 1962 and 1986.

West Cliff staged five Lancashire CCC first-class fixtures between 1936 and 1952.

Notable former professionals include Javed Miandad and Mark Greatbatch while popular Pakistan professional Bilal Asad marked five years with the club with a benefit game in September 2010.
