Cricket was first played at Trafalgar Road when Birkdale Cricket Club was established in 1874. In 1902 the club amalgamated with Southport Cricket Club, which had lost its own ground to redevelopment and the unified Southport & Birkdale CC gained admission to the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition after the First World War.
County cricket has been played at the club since 1959 when Worcestershire were the first visitors and many greats of the game (Akram, Lloyd, Muralitharan, Richards, Anderson and Stokes to name a few) have appeared on the ground in the years since.
The club currently fields three senior teams, all playing in their respective Liverpool Competition premier divisions. In addition, a relaunched women and girls squad is now growing in numbers and playing competitive cricket.
Our junior cricket offering covers sessions for children from ages 5 to 19, with coaching and competitive cricket.
The club boasts the finest facilities in the area and is always looking for new players of all ages and abilities. We also have a comprehensive programme of social events.
