The Cricket Club


Long Marston fields two senior sides in the Wetherby Cricket League, with fixtures played primarily on a Saturday and an U-11 side which plays on a Monday evening.

During the main season the club also takes part in a few Cup Competitions with matches,  typically played on a Sunday or Tuesday evening. In the close season the club fields a side in the Indoor Cricket League played at the Lordswood Cricket School in Tadcaster and nets, February to April, at a local school.

Long Marston has one of the best maintained squares in the Wetherby League with an artificial wicket alongside and a large field of play in a pleasant rural village setting. Tea and changing facilities in the Village Hall are the equal of any in the league.

In July 2008 the club hosted the only Old England match in Yorkshire that year when a Marston Invitation side achieved a draw against John Lever's XI. On the only sunny day of the month the club received many plaudits from spectators and cricketers alike for the event arrangements, the ground facilities and our glorious weather!
