South Shields Cricket Club

South Shields Cricket Club

A little early season cricket action at Woods Terrace, the home of South Shields and Westoe Club. The cricket section of the club was formed in 1850 and they started playing cricket at Woods Terrace in 1868, a ground they share with the Westoe Rugby Club.

If you are looking for the ball it is in front of the batsman’s left leg!

  2. I must confess that I have only seen Cricket on Dish Television several years back. I had never seen it before and what I saw doesn’t resemble any ball games played here where I live. So I would have had to get a book and read up on the game to know what I was looking at. I don’t think most people in this country have seen it or know anything about it. It is hard to imagine that something so popular in your country is almost unknown in this one.

    Today is the third episode in One Day in the Life of a Robin. It is about the toilet issues — the poop sack. Tomorrow will be the end of the series with an unforgettable set of pictures. Hope you can see them.

  3. Oh, yes! Love cricket. This year and last my son has played a winter cricket comp on Sundays. Most weekends the temps have still been in the low 20s (celcius that is). He’s made 49 and 38 not out so far. Oh, yes, we are cricket tragics in this house!!!
