Welcome to the ACS


Welcome to the website of the Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians. If you are looking for an answer to any question about cricket, seeking clarification about a particular record or feat, or searching for information on a team or a particular player, you have come to the right place, as the members of the Association have a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the game, its records and the feats of players and teams all over the world.

If you have a query, please send an e-mail to secretary@acscricket.com and the Secretary of the Association will point you in the right direction.

If you are undertaking family history and seeking information about a relative, or if you are looking for information about a particular match, you will find the CricketArchive site a useful starting point.

Many members of the Association have helped to compile this archive, and the information you are seeking may already be there.

Cricket: A Weekly Record 1882-1914 now online

We are delighted to announce that the digitised version of Cricket: A Weekly Record of the Game, the magazine which ran from 1882 to 1914, is now available here on the ACS website. There is also a link to it in the left-hand sidebar.

As many of you know, Cricket reported the ‘Golden Age’ of the game in England and beyond in great detail, with scorecards not only for first-class matches but also for schools and clubs (who could pay for their scores to be inserted). It covered tours abroad and matches across the Empire (as it then was). All of this makes it a unique resource for cricket historians, and it is now available on this site in a fully searchable edition.

Your will need to register your email address in order to access the resource, but it will be free until 1 February, when it will become a subscription service; we will give details of how to subscribe nearer the time.

The ACS committee would like to thank Simon Sweetman and Peter Griffiths for all their dedicated work on this project, in the face of many unexpected difficulties.
