The Parks is a cricket ground situated off Fox Grove, Godmanchester, Huntingdonshire. The ground is bordered to the north and south by residential housing and to the east by the A14 road.

History[edit]

Established between 1959 and 1972, the ground plays host to the home matches of Godmanchester Town Cricket Club.[1] Huntingdonshire played two List A matches at the ground in the early 2000s, against the Yorkshire Cricket Board in the 2000 NatWest Trophy and the Gloucestershire Cricket Board in the 2002 Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy,[2] with both matches ending in five wicket defeats for Huntingdonshire. The county also played a single MCCA Knockout Trophy match at The Parks in 2001 against the Essex Cricket Board.[3] Huntingdonshire soon after lost List A status and were excluded from the MCCA Knockout Trophy,[n 1] but have continued to play in minor fixtures at the ground.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Although considered one of the twenty-two Minor counties of English and Welsh cricket, Huntingdonshire never entered a team into any minor counties competitions until 1998, when it entered a team into the MCCA Knockout Trophy, while the following year it entered a team into the domestic List A competition. It continued to play in both competitions until 2002, after which the decision was taken to reduce the size of both competitions, with Huntingdonshire alongside the Cricket Board's of the first-class counties being excluded from future competitions
