One of the earliest known references to a cricket ground was mentioned in a match report dated 1 August 1874, in the Northampton Mercury stating "Pikehills" to be the location and by the 1880s, reports show Rushden Cricket Club winning their second County Challenge Cup in 1884. By 1889, Rushden Cricket Club amalgamated with both the local Football and Rugby club to become the 'Rushden Cricket and Football Club'; and the club moved to their current ground in the same year. -There is more on the history of the club here: Wiki

Keeping a club running without a wealthy owner or generous donations takes a large amount of work and effort, from fundraising to maintenance and matchday security and bar staff. We were super happy to help the club prepare for the new season by giving a couple of the clubs rooms a bit of tlc and a fresh new look.

We hope to help the club as much as we can moving forward with the painting and decorating element of maintenance and any other way we are able to assist to keep the club looking great and keeping funds coming in.
