1888 to 2013 - Celebrating 125 years of cricket at Ashley

History of Ashley CC

Over the years we have built up a priceless record of the history of Ashley.  This project is ongoing and we hope to create a record of a wonderful cricket club that will be available for many years to come.  Of particular interest is the history of the club that is drawn largely from Geoff Turton history that was published in 1988.  View it here

The StatZone contains hundred's of match reports, yearly averages and miscellaneous stuff that will bring back memories of summer days long passed.  As we find old score books in bottom drawers we will attempt to build up a history of the club over the years to build a priceless archive of a great little cricket club.  If you have anything that we have missed, please contact the club.  Enjoy!
