UPTON-BY-CHESTER CRICKET CLUB

The earliest known site of Upton's Cricket Ground was the current site of Endsleigh Gardens on land owned by Fred Griffith. When the land was sold a new site was established on the current site of Willow Close. The ground had a pavilion.

Auctioneer Len Wright is credited with being the key instigator of the team. Initially just the one team they later split into two teams with Horace Whaley captaining the B team.
