Northop Cricket Club celebrates 150 not out
The 150th Anniversary celebrations started in April 2014 with the launch of a celebratory book recording the history of the club since 1864. A very big thank you to all those who arranged and supported the various events and also to Neil and Sarah Bartlem who spent many hours reviewing archive information to include in the book.

The book is packed with photographs from the early 1900s to the present day – not just team photos of junior and senior players but also snapshots of spectators, members and all the others who make Northop CC such a special institution.


One of Flintshire’s oldest cricket teams celebrated reaching 150 not out by publishing a commemorative book to record its exploits. The book, “Northop Cricket Club 1864-2014”, covers the entire history of cricket in the village from these very early years to the present day.


Researched, written and designed by club members Neil and Sarah Bartlem of marketing company White Fox, the book is a compelling warts-and all-portrait of a much-loved institution that has established itself at the heart of life in Northop village.


Mike Hughes, Chairman:

“Reading this book will no doubt revive happy memories for lots of people including our ex-players and those of other clubs, our faithful supporters and the older residents of the village".

"The book is the fruit of many hours of careful research. It represents not just a celebration of our first century and a half but also the platform on which we can record our future exploits".


Peter Hybart, Chief Executive of Cricket Wales

“We are proud of each and every one of our 230 member clubs but those that can boast of 150 years promoting our cherished game at the grassroots level are few and far between". 

“Local cricket people are unanimous in telling me that Northop Cricket Club is enormously respected within North East Wales and further afield, at both junior and senior level, and sets a standard for other sports clubs in the area".
