    Scarborough Cricket Festival

    Details

    The Scarborough Festival is an end of season series of cricket matches featuring Yorkshire County Cricket Club which has been held in Scarborough, on the east coast of Yorkshire, since 1876.

    The ground, at North Marine Road, sees large crowds of holiday makers watching a mixture of first class county cricket, one day fixtures and invitation XIs in the early September sunshine every year. Many of the world's greatest cricketers have played in festival matches over the years.

    128th ANNUAL FESTIVAL

    This season's Welcome to Yorkshire Scarborough Cricket Festival takes place on the 11 August - 18 August 2014.

    This year sees the 128th year of the festival, which started in 1876 a year after the first MCC visit to the ground. At that time the ground still had its limitations, and members of the press, who were not provided with covered facilities, were often scathing in their criticism.
    Partly because of this in 1877 substantial alterations took place, supported by John Woodall and the Lords Londesborough and Derwent, so that the ground largely assumed the form it retains to the present day. Over the years many improvements have been made and in 2011, there were major improvements.

    This year at the Scarborough Cricket Festival, Andrew Gale's men will play Sussex in the LV County Championship and a double header against Essex and Derbyshire in the Royal London One Day Cup.

    The current squad boasts some of the finest young talent in the country, and they'll be hoping to go one better than last year's second place. So, whilst they'll obviously be hoping to finish strongly in all three competitions, there'll be more than a few players looking to give the England selectors something to think about.
