Cheam Road is a cricket ground in Sutton, London (formerly Surrey). The first recorded match on the ground was in 1940, when Sutton United Tramps played London Counties.[1]

The ground held a single match in the 1955 Minor Counties Championship when the Surrey Second XI played the Warwickshire Second XI.[2] More recently, the ground has held Surrey Second XI matches in the Second XI Championship and the Second XI Trophy.[3][4]

Surrey played a single List-A match against Derbyshire at Cheam Road in the 1969 Player's County League.[5]

In local domestic cricket, Cheam Road is the home ground of Sutton Cricket Club[6] who play in the Surrey Premier League. Historically the cricket ground was part of the Lower Cheam House Estate and was donated to the cricket club. Having gone without a pavilion since 1858, the club bought the old waiting room at Sutton railway station and installed it at the ground. In 1906 a wooden pavilion was built, but this was destroyed during The Blitz. A replacement pavilion was constructed in 1955.
