Cricket at Southport & Birkdale Sports Club

The Southport (founded 1859) and Birkdale (founded 1874) cricket clubs amalgamated in 1902, joining  the Liverpool Cricket Competition in 1919 and currently playing in the First Division of this ECB premier league.


S&B boasts some of the best facilities in the County and has been hosting First Class cricket since 1959, with Lancashire returning to play Durham at Trafalgar Road in July 2016 - for full details see our County Match and Hospitality pages.

We field three senior teams, as well as running a large and successful junior section with teams from U9 to U19 and new members are always welcome,

We are ClubMark accredited and a designated LCB 'Focus Club'. We have excellent links with local schools and will be looking to form a junior girls team in 2016. Further information on junior coaching is available under the Junior-Cricket tab.

The Cricket Club organises fundraising events throughout the year to help meet running costs and grateful thanks go to all of our sponsors, in particular Butler Capital LLP and Pinetree Garden Maintenance & Landscaping the Club's main sponsors.
