LEYLAND CRICKET CLUB
Founded: 1848. Joined Northern League: 1952
Leyland Cricket Club was formed after Leyland and
Farington CC and Leyland Motors CC joined together in February 2007.
They play at the Stanning Memorial Ground.
Both Leyland teams were founder members of the Northern League.
Leyland CC was originally founded in 1848 and the Fox Lane ground was
opened in 1880, marked by a prestigious game against a South XI. In 2000 the club merged
with BTR CC and played as Leyland and Farington CC.
Leyland Motors CC was formed in 1919 as part of the Sports and Social Club for employees of
the Leyland Motors vehicle works and played at Sandy Lane.
Both clubs joined the Ribblesdale League in 1921, Leyland winning the championship
in 1921, 1925, 1926, 1935 and 1938 and Leyland Motors in 1939. Leyland
were Northern League champions in 1961, 1981, 1991, 2010 and 2013, and Leyland
Motors champions in 1973. Leyland were division two champions in 1952
and 1955, 2010, 2011 and 2012 and Leyland Motors division two champions in 1953.
The 2010 season was an incredible one for the Leyland club with their first,
second, third and fourth teams all winning their respective leagues, a
feat also achieved by the club's two Sunday elevens.
