Mannofield Park is a cricket ground in the Mannofield district of Aberdeen, Scotland.

The cricket ground is the regular home of the Scotland national cricket team and Aberdeenshire Cricket Club. It is also known as Citylets Mannofield for international fixtures.

History[edit]

The first recorded match on the ground dates back to 1879 when Aberdeen University played Edinburgh University. The first first-class match to be held on the ground came in 1930 when Scotland played Ireland. The ground has been host to many great cricketing names over the years, most notably Sir Donald Bradman, who scored his last first class century on British soil at the ground in 1948.

The ground has since played host to 12 first-class matches, the last of which came in August 2009 when Scotland played Ireland in the 2009–10 ICC Intercontinental Cup.

The ground has also played host to 12 One Day Internationals, the first of which came in the 2008 Associates Tri-Series in Scotland when Ireland played New Zealand. The last One Day International to date came in May 2014 when Scotland lost to England.[1]

It has been selected to host Scotland's World Cricket League and Intercontinental Cup matches in August 2016.[2]
