Established in 1894, they play their home games at The Coppice.
Famous for producing cricketers such as Jason Gallian, Gary Yates and the irrepressible all-rounder Andy "Wakca" Walker. Walker rose to stardom in the late 90's and soon garnered a reputation for being the most feared leg spinner in league cricket (No mean feat considering the league contains ex-England player Chris Schofield).
This natural bowling ability was only bettered by his fearsome strokeplay, regardless of the situation Walker has always remained resolute around where his natural hitting zones are and will not falter from this whatever the scenario. This is evident when speaking to oppoosition captains "I put four slips, two gullys and two points and the b@stard still got it through" Bobby Cross - June 2008
As can be seen from his career wagon wheel 98.7% of his runs were scored between Point and Fine leg, this is a tremendous feat and one unlikely to be matched or surpassed in our lifetime.
