   The long tradition of cricket was interrupted for several years prior to 2004 when several friendly 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 donated to the Club by 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.

    A brand new wicket was constructed at the end of the 2008 season which came into use during the 2010 season and then at the end of that season with the help of more grants a further Surrey Loam wicket was laid at one side of the square and a practice wicket at the other.

 

    Announcing a 'first' for our club - at the end of the 2102 season were given an award! Several committee members recently attended Benwell Hill Cricket Club to receive the 'Turfcare Specialists' Northumberland Cricket Board Groundstaff Association  Non-League Ground of the Year Award.  This is a great achievement for the club groundstaff considering the weather over the last season, making cutting Castle Green difficult to say the least.

    Another feature of weekends at Bamburgh Castle is the Croquet Club which plays on an area adjacent to the cricket field that is prepared for them by our volunteer ground staff.

 

New John Deere cutter.

After many months of fund raising, the committee were able to purchase a brand new ride on cutter to replace the existing aging machine. Supplied by Greenlay Ltd of Cramlington, the machine was handed over in November 2015.
