Earliest cricket

Cricket may have reached Staffordshire by the end of the 17th century. The Warwickshire & Staffordshire Journal was certainly aware of the sport in 1738 for it carried a report of a London v Mitcham game at the Artillery Ground on 11 August (London won by 1 wicket).

The earliest known reference to cricket being played in Staffordshire is as late as 1817.

Origin of club

The present Staffordshire CCC was founded on 24 November 1871 and took part in the first Minor Counties Championship in 1895. It then lapsed for four years, but has been a member continuously since 1900.
