We know from references in Nottinghamshire newspapers that cricket was being played in Farnsfield as early as 1817.

The ground we now occupy at Station Lane was first used in 1862 when the Newark Advertiser of June 25th reported a well contested match between Farnsfield Cricket Club and Nottingham United Commercial which Farnsfield won by 7 wickets.

In 1920 Farnsfield joined the North Notts Cricket League and later the Nottinghamshire County League winning the Championship in 1930.

After the 2nd World War Farnsfield helped to found the Mansfield & District League, winning the Championship trophy for the first 3 seasons.

For many years the club had 2 teams in the Bassetlaw & District League, first winning the then Division 1 championship in 1989 the same year that the 2nd XI won the 2nd team championship!

In 2006 we entered a 3rd team in the Bassetlaw & District League and in 2013 we took over the former Edingley CC ground in Farnsfield as a permanent home for them.
