Myreside Cricket Ground is a cricket ground in Edinburgh, Scotland. The first recorded match held on the ground came in 1901 when George Watson's College played Blair Lodge School.[1] The ground held its first first-class match when Scotland played Ireland in 1980, while in 1982 it held a second first-class fixture between the sides.[2] The ground held its first List A match when Scotland played Glamorgan in the 1985 NatWest Trophy. Five further List A matches were played there, the last of which saw Scotland play Worcestershire in the 1993 NatWest Trophy.[3]

The ground is still in use today by Watsonians Cricket Club.[4]
