BUILDING A DIVERSE COMMUNITY THROUGH SPORT
140 YEARS OF SPORT AT MOYLENA
Muckamore Cricket & Lawn Tennis Club was established in 1874 by York Street Flax Spinning Company. For the next 100 years it was to remain a foundation stone of a small village community. It is now one of the premier clubs in Northern Cricket Union (NCU) - having previously won both the Senior Cup and the Senior League.
The Clubs approach has been to promote a thriving youth programme with the introduction of our own qualified Youth Coaches. This has enhanced and invigorated the club. We also have our resident tennis coach Ryan Gamble encouraging and developing both youth and adult players.
The Cricket section has grown from 2 to 6 senior teams with weekend play, 2 mid-week teams and an ever growing Ladies section. Youth members are extensively coached and play competitive League and Cup games at various age groups.
We have members from a wide catchment area and we are delighted to have attracted a large number of Asian players who have brought their passion, knowledge and love for cricket into the club.
