Huthwaite Cricket

Cricket became recognised as our national sport from the 18th century. And this Ashfield District of Nottinghamshire was once widely regarded to be the Nursery of English Cricket. Huthwaite links are known among and beyond the many famed Sutton-in-Ashfield players who reached highest professional county and international standards. Other sportsmen are already featured.

This ambiguously titled trophy winning team does offer dated names to potentially identify a specific club. The pavilion doesn't quite match CWS home grounds, and there's no comparable view yet to assert possibility of it being the New Hucknall ground. The Huthwaite colliery did furthermore field several known teams on their own adjacent home sports pitch.

Death of 74 year old Mr W Ellis finds William to have been one of the founders behind the New Hucknall Colliery Cricket Club He'd keenly kept up support long after wielding the willow himself among the Collieries Alliance Divisions. It's likely therefore, he also witnessed additional cricketers forming New Hucknall Office Staff, plus the disbanding of a Huthwaite Wednesday Cricket Club.
