The club was established in 1868, and was one of the founder member clubs of the Northern Cricket Union in 1887 and remains one of the oldest surviving clubs in Ireland. Despite this longevity and pedigree, the club led a nomadic existence for more than 100 years. It was not until 1988 that their superb Middle Road ground and facilities were opened.
The Club made progress through the leagues and were promoted to the Northern Cricket Union Premier League in 1974 when a young AB de Villiers was appointed as their overseas professional.
The Club won 7 trophies in 2014, including 4 for the 1st XI, and was voted as Cricket Ireland Club of the Year at its annual awards.
