East Harlsey Cricket Club

East Harlsey Cricket Club runs four teams with opportunities for everyone who is interested. There are two teams in the local Langbaurgh League playing on Saturdays from April to September. An evening team plays in the Northallerton area league on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is also a junior side and Ladies' team.

The club is currently fund-raising to extend the pavilion and make it more suitable for all ages and genders. Go to their crowd funding page to donate to this cause.

The Club offers the opportunity for everybody aged 5+ to play cricket!

  • All Stars Cricket for 5-8 year olds

  • Hambleton Junior League teams for 8-14 year olds

  • Mens (Aged 13+) teams in the Langbaurgh League & Northallerton & District Evening League

  • Ladies team in the North Yorkshire Women's Softball Cricket League, plus other local friendly matches

For details of fixtures and results go to www.eastharlseycc.co.uk. There is also a thriving Junior section who play regular fixtures, and a Ladies Team was started in 2017.

There was no competitive cricket league played in 2020 due to the ongoing restrictions due to the pandemic of Covid19. The 2017, 2018 and 2019 cricket seasons ended with the East Harlsey First Team in 1st place in the Langbaurgh Cricket League Division 1. The Second Team finished in 6th place out of 12 teams of Division 2.

Congratulations to the Evening League team who won the 2017 League title.

The cricket field is 200 metres outside the village and the playing area, outfield and surrounds are definitely the best in the district. As many villages don’t have a cricket team these days, players are drawn from about a 10 mile radius. There are outdoor nets at the cricket field. Indoor nets are organised in January/February/March. Junior coaching is also available. In 2018, solar panels were installed on the pavilion roof to supply electricity.

Spectators are welcome to come down and watch Home games and come along and enjoy a cup of tea and slice of cake! More information about the cricket club can be found at http://eastharlsey.play-cricket.com/
