Green Lane is a cricket ground in Durham, County Durham. The first recorded match on the ground was in 1866, when Durham City played the Northumberland Club.[1] Durham first played at the ground in the 1899 Minor Counties Championship against Norfolk. Durham next used the ground in the 1904 Minor Counties Championship against Northamptonshire. The ground would next be used for Minor Counties cricket in 1975, when Durham returned to play at the ground, before playing their final Minor Counties Championship match there in 1984 against Bedfordshire.[2] In 1988, Durham returned to the ground to play an MCCA Knockout Trophy match against Northumberland. The following season Durham played their final match on the ground in the MCCA Knockout Trophy against Cumberland.[3]

The ground has also held a single List-A match in the 1979 Gillette Cup, which saw Durham play Berkshire.[4] Following Durham's elevation to first-class cricket, the Durham Second XI have played a number of matches at the ground.[5]
