North Bradley Cricket Club was first formed in 1867. In 1951 Peace Memorial Field was established, providing the team with its first real home field. By the mid-1980s the club was on a downward turn, and was in need of revival. Dennis Jones helped re-establish the club, beginning with ‘Father and Son’ and ‘Cricket Club vrs Football Club’ matches.

In 1999, the club first entered the Wessex Midweek League, and managed to win the championship with an unbeaten record.

In 2005 the club entered a side into the WCCL Division 8.

For the 2010 season, as they will be fielding a side with a mixture of new and old players, they have elected to play in Division 7.
