Pudsey St Lawrence CRICKET CLUB
A warm welcome to the website of Pudsey St Lawrence Cricket Club, our clubhouse and ground are situated on Tofts Rd in the heart of Pudsey. The club has a long and rich heritage having been formed in 1845, In that time it has produced many outstanding teams and cricketers including 2 of Yorkshire and England's greatest players, Herbert Sutcliffe and Sir Leonard Hutton.
It is our aim to provide cricket opportunities for all ages, abilities, genders and race and to help all cricketers reach their potential, as well as to provide a great social space for all the family to enjoy.
The club provides playing opportunities for boys and girls from the age 5 -18, as well as ladies and men’s teams. Our 1st & 2nd XIs compete in the premier divisions of the Bradford cricket league and play their home games at Tofts Rd, with our 3rd team playing in the Dales Council league at Fulneck school. We also enter teams in 20x20 and over 50s competitions.
We have an extensive junior development programme starting with an 8 week All Stars programme for 5-8 year old boys and girls, with boys teams starting at Under 9 and going through to Under 18. Our girls section also run under 11s & 15s teams. All our coaches and volunteers are fully qualified and vetted as part off our commitment to safeguarding in line with our Clubmark status.

One of the most important elements of the club is the development of young cricketers through our coaching programmes and Junior Saints teams for both boys and girls.
Our record of developing of young players from our junior ranks then promoting then into our senior teams is second to none, and provides a great source of pride for the club. We have also produced many representative cricketers, a number of whom have gone on to play county cricket.
