Queensbury CC was formed on 1 January 2000 as a result of the merger of two local clubs - Union Croft CC and Yews Green CC. As the only remaining cricket club in the village the name Queensbury CC was adopted. It should be noted that there is no connection to the now defunct former Bradford League team of the same name.
The Old Guy Road ground, at nearly 1200 feet above sea level, is believed to be one of, if not the, highest in the country on which regular league cricket is played. Panoramic views down the Calder Valley to Stoodley Pike and across to the Emley Moor transmitter are aforded from all parts of the ground. It is runmoured (??) that on a clear day Blackpool Tower can be seen from the roof of the club house!
In November 2013 the Lockley Lounge was openned by locally born Yorkshire County cricketer Alex Lees. This latest improvement to the facilities at Old Guy Road provides a comfortable setting for after match socialising, and all supporters and visiting teams are assured of a warm welcome.
The club fields three senior teams in the Spenser Wilson Halifax Cricket League - two on a Saturday and one in the Sunday Section.
The 2016 season saw the first team win the Roy Smith First Division title and gain promotion back to the Premier Division. The second team performed above expectation and finished the season in fourth place in the Roy Smith Second Teams First Division after a brief flirtation with possible promotion.After a slow start to the seson, the Sunday team finished their campaign strongly fighting their way to third place in their division, a mere 15 points away from the promotin places (a Sunday Section win is worth 20 points).
During the season senior nets are held on a Tuesday, starting at 6.30 pm.In addition to the official practice night, several ECBCA Level 2 coaches, two state of the art artificial nets, and a Bola bowling machine are available to club members at ANY reasonable (!!) time.
If you live locally and would like to play top quality amateur cricket come along on a Tuesday evening or give Neil Myers a call on 01274 882971.
