Lisburn Cricket Club is the oldest cricket club in Northern Ireland, and the third oldest in Ireland. Established in 1836, we celebrated our 175th anniversary in the 2011 season. Please go to the 175th anniversary page for further information.
We are situated in the centre of Wallace Park, which hosts our recently expanded ground and the Cecil Walker pavilion. The club currently runs 4 adult teams – our first XI has consistently featured amongst the top teams in NCU cricket, finishing in 3rd place in the league in 2010. Our 2nd XI has been one of the strongest sides in junior cricket, winning the league 4 times in the last decade. Our 3rd XI now compete in Junior 4 previously having been league winners twice and Minor Cup winners 3 times during the last decade.
Our 4th XI has reformed for 2012 with the aim of giving more of our younger cricketers weekend cricket, they are in Junior 9.
In addition to the adult teams, the club pays great attention to our youth set-up. The full range of age group teams operate at the club, and youngsters from as young as 8 or 9 are wclcome to come along and play cricket at the club. We recently invested in a new state of the art practice facility that will permit even better training sessions for adult and youths alike.
Our club professional for 2012, Darryl Brown, joins us from Fox Lodge in the North West and comes with a fantastic reputation for coaching as well as on the playing front. You can keep up to date with all of the latest news throughout the winter and into the new season. Our present practice timetable is available on the Club Training Page.
New members are welcomed to attend sessions or to come along to the Cecil Walker pavilion at any time. You will find a young, vibrant club that has a great social side to it and which presents opportunities for cricketers of all ages and abilities to enjoy and improve their cricket.
