NORTH YORKSHIRE & SOUTH DURHAM ECB PREMIER LEAGUE
Welcome to the official website of the Darlington Building Society North Yorkshire & South Durham Premier Cricket League - an ECB accredited Premier league and 11 times LCC national inter-league championship winners.

This weather forecast is generated by the Met Office Weather Widget

The NYSD Cricket League has been the primary club cricket competition in the Tees Valley region for more than a century. Founded in 1892 it is understood to be the second oldest senior league in the world.

As at November 2013 the League had 30 full member clubs, ranging from Whitby in the south of the region, to Barnard Castle in the west, and Blackhall in the north.

Uniquely three grounds have hosted County Championship cricket for Durham and Yorkshire - Darlington, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough - while many others have hosted county second eleven cricket. During its long history more than 300 international and first-class cricketers have played in the league.

From Herbert Sutcliffe to Frank Tyson, to Desmond Haynes to Mushtaq Ahmed - these are just a few of the great players who have graced a league that also has a clear history of producing home grown talent for the international stage such as Chris Old, Bill Athey, Paul Jarvis and Liam Plunkett.

The NYSD was at the forefront when Durham began their first-class adventure, with 60% of their home county championship matches being played on NYSD grounds in 1992, and 55% in 1993, while 8 of the 22 players used by Durham in that first historic season played in the NYSD, seven of them being home produced.

In national terms the League has always been regarded as one of the strongest in the country, and holds the record for LCC national inter-league championships with their 11 titles being more than any other league in the UK.

In 2011 the NYSD was formally recognised when it became the 26th ECB Premier League in the country, and the first to be granted accreditation on a stand alone basis since the original formation of the ECB Premier League structure at the turn of the century. At the time, and after a three year long audit, the ECB commented that the NYSD comfortably met, and in most cases significantly exceeded, the laid down criteria.
