The long tradition of cricket was interrupted for several years prior to 2004 when several friendlies matches were successfully staged in the latter half of the season.
Work was carried out on the square during the autumn of 2004 and then spring of 2005 before we staged a series of friendlies throughout the summers of 2005, 2006 and 2007. In 2006 a 1926 Barford and Perkins roller was acquired from Benwell Hill Cricket Club.
Early in 2008, a new committee was formed, the members of which are working to obtain awards and grants in order to purchase new equipment including grass cutting machinery, new storage facilities and pest control measures to reduce damage done to the playing field and to the Castle Green in general.
