The Cricket Club was formed by employees of Naylor Jennings Green Lane Mill. Naylor Jennings gave the plot of land on Green Lane for the pitch and as at that time trade was slow they paid some of their men to level and turf the ground.
In their first year the team came 2nd in the Wharfedale League.
    The 2 images are of the last match of the season, Yeadon Green Lane V The Rest of The League.
It was intended to be a farewell match before builders moved onto the site, however some matches were played afterwards.
Housing is now on the site (March 2014)
