History of Ashton Ladysmith

Ashton Ladysmith Cricket Club are an open age English cricket team, based in the town of Ashton-under-Lyne in Tameside, Greater Manchester. The club plays its home games at the Ladysmith Sports Centre on Rose Hill Road, and competes in the North Manchester Cricket League. The club was formerly known as Ashton St. James Cricket Club and played their games on St Albans Avenue in Ashton-under-Lyne.

Thanks to lottery funding the club moved to a new ground on Rose Hill Road, and shortly after changed their name to Ashton Ladysmith, Ladysmith being the name of the army barracks which the ground is now situated.

In October 2007 Ashton Ladysmith's clubhouse was set on fire and burned down in an act of vandalism. Thanks to the work undertaken by its members the clubhouse was re-generated thanks to various funds.

In September 2010, the club was awarded a £600 grant for new equipment and coaching expenses, as part of a scheme to reduce anti-social behaviour.

The club has two open age teams, operating in the first and fourth divisions of the league.
