Northwood Cricket Club (NCC) have scanned all the scoresheets from their rich history for people interested in the club to find online.
NCC said they wanted to make their scoresheets from the past 80 years easily accessible “to show potential new members how much noteworthy history and traditions our club has and to show their children/partner how much they have enjoyed a game of cricket in the past.”
On their website, NCC said: “Since the club started recording scoresheets on the website in 2012, one of the challenges was how to migrate all past scorebooks into the website.
“We have now scanned all the pre-website score sheets, which are in the clubhouse’s loft, and uploaded it on the website. What this means is that the history of the club is no longer consigned to the murky corners of a cold, dark and hard-to-access attic. Around 80 years of score sheets with over 4,000 fixtures are now easily accessible online.
“We can assure you that when you go through 1938 to 2000s, it is like binge watching a box-set of never-ending seasons of NCC, with multiple storylines spanning across many generations.
“You will also see the pattern of fixtures played, clubs that don’t exist anymore as well as the fixtures we are still playing, the fact that we have always played Chorleywood in April and also keep an eye on the number of times NCC batted first.”
