Welcome to Daisy Hill Cricket Club


The club itself was established in 1896 by founder - members, H. Blundell Snr, H. Etock and the first secretary, W.H. Hurst.The original ground was Bell House Hartwell off Leigh Road, with the present St. James Street ground being purchased in 1911.


The land purchased at St. James street was farmstead with a village duck pond. Daisy Hill's present Pavilion is built on the farm house site and the present car park at the rear of the Pavilion was the duck pond.


The field was renowned throughout the area as the best pasture and grazing land. Besides Cricket, three tennis courts were laid, enabling the club to compete in the Tennis league as well as the Cricket.


Daisy Hill were presented the land by Mr. Wardle, whose wish it was to do something for the village. The ground and original clubhouse were left in trust by him on behalf of his wife, who was the daughter of Thomas Walsh, owner of Greenvale Print & Dye works, now Bellhouse Hartwell.
