150th Anniversary Celebrations

21 - 23 March 2014

What a wonderful weekend was had by all. Many thanks to all those who participated or helped organise the weekend. It was a great success!

 

150th All-Time Eleven

What is the best team North Shore Cricket Club could put on the park?

That question has been answered with the announcement of the team during the 150th Weekend.

A team of selectors has been gathering the stats, scanning the archives, reviewing old footage, taking bribes from those still alive and come up with the best team North Shore could theoretically put on the field. We have selected a team of twelve including a captain and vice-captain.
