About Us

We are a family friendly cricket club in the centre of Gosforth - we use cricket to unite the community.

 

We offer an annual membership to players, the parents of players in the junior section and social members who can use our bar facilities. Junior cricket starts as young as 2.5 years old in the Mini Bulls program and from U7 right the way through to senior Men’s and Women’s cricket in a full summer program. A highlight is our popular Friday nights where parents are encouraged to come and socialise whilst their kids train. Our Women’s’ and Girls’ section is our largest growing sector, and we continue to encourage participation.

 

 Through the North East Cricket Academy in the indoor school at South North CC, we run commercial courses for SNCC members, as well as players from other clubs, from October to March. These courses (called Winter and Pre-Season) can be found on our website which are different from the summer training programs that are included in membership. The courses run through our business subsidiary the Newcastle Cricket Centre Ltd.

 

From a cricket perspective, South Northumberland Cricket Club aims to provide appropriate pathways and developmental opportunities for all members to maximise their playing potential, whilst ensuring all teams are competitive. We are looking to create the best teams in the region whilst achieving the above. We aim to provide first class cricketing facilities and coaching in a supportive, friendly yet competitive playing environment for members of all levels of ability to fully participate and enjoy their cricket.

 

We are proud of the cricket successes the club has achieved locally in the North East Premier League, winning the league 13 times since its inception in 2002 and on a national level.

 

Off the field we run numerous club events which friends and family are welcome to attend. We offer our function room and indoor school out for private and corporate functions. Our marquee events include hosting the Durham CCC 50 Over match and two annual corporate dinners with a long list of illustrious speakers as well as our popular club fireworks night.
