North Staffordshire & District Cricket League


Established in 1889 the North Staffs & District Cricket League is the second oldest in the UK. Following the ending of Saturday cricket after our clubs left the League at the end of 2005 the decision was taken to keep the League's name going by starting a mid-week 8-a-side 15 overs per side competition, thus the Phoenix 15 Competition was formed. The Competition is named after our late Chairman, Ken Lightfoot, who, along with League Secretary Roger Machin, devised and developed the original idea of the Phoenix 15 Competition. Our aim is to raise money for charitable organisations and also to put money back into cricket in the form of prize money. So far in excess of £14,000 has been given to charity. League record individual score is 160 by Peter Wilshaw of J&G Meakins v Newcastle & Hartshill on 22nd June 2017, the highest team score is 247-0 by J&G Meakins v Sandyford on 17th May 2018.
