Barnard Castle Cricket Club
Your Community Club
Barney, as they are known to all, have made huge strides in the past decade. From being a second tier side in the NYSD League for nearly 50 years, they have become one of its leading clubs.
The imposing new clubhouse, replacing the charming but outmoded wooden hut which had stood for half a century, is a symbol of their playing success. There is a quiet determination to try to ensure that the curve continues to be upward. The club have had several accomplished professional players since joining the top division but their efforts have been underpinned by the quantity and quality of home grown players.
Junior coaching remains a vital part of Barney and the Wednesday evening sessions are a key element of the summer. All youngsters from five to 15 and their parents are welcome. The club has played a significant part in the life of the town for almost 200 years and the past is helping the present and the future.
None of the progress on the field could have been achieved without the help and guidance of sponsors and supporters. The goodwill shown has been tremendous which helps a dedicated committee to keep their sleeves rolled up.
