Welcome to the Home of Cricket in Inverness
Northern Counties Cricket Club was established in 1864 and has survived the many years due to its ability to adapt to the changing environment. Today Counties is a warm friendly club, welcoming new members of all shapes, sizes and abilities. The diversity of our membership is our strength and is what unites us on and off the pitch. The club competes in the North of Scotland Cricket Association competitions.
To celebrate our 150th year, membership for new players in the current season (2015) is half price. Just come along to one of our training sessions and introduce yourself!

Having lost to Nairn with 3 balls to spare on July 6th in the competition's qualifying stages, Northern Counties got through to the finals day of the competition as the best runners up. The team pulled out an excellent performance in their first match on the day, blowing away their opposition and winning by 7 wickets against Buckie CC to reach the final.
They continued in that vane for the final against Ross County, posting the formidable total of 168 batting first. Ross County were unable to sustain the run rate without losing wickets, ending all out on 67 giving our reserves the impressive win by 101 runs!
Special congratulations are due to Bilal Mohamed and Nuwan Eshwara, both of whom contributed significantly with the bat and ball in both matches. Really well done to everyone who took part - it was a fantastic team effort all round.
Thanks are due to our hosts on the day, Nairn CC, whose hospitality (and bacon rolls) made the day extremely enjoyable.
