Authors’ Words – Acknowledgements

To you all we express our appreciation and gratitude without your help this history would not have been possible.

Finally to everyone at Ashton Cricket Club we say thank you for making us welcome - we have made many friends.

Wishing you every success for the next 150 years.

Philip and David Williams 2006



Ashton CC was formed in 1857.  To celebrate the 150th anniversary local historians Philip and David Williams were commissioned to write the history of our Club.

This was published in 2007, and is a really comprehensive view of the way the Club has developed from its early days to present.
