Cricket 1882-1914

Welcome to the Cricket magazine section of the ACS website.

Cricket: a weekly record of the game was a magazine published from 1882 to 1914, spanning what is often regarded as the sport’s Golden Age. It reported cricket in England and beyond in great detail, with scorecards for first-class matches but also for schools and clubs (who could pay for their scores to be inserted). It covered tours abroad and fixtures across the Empire (as it then was). All of this makes it a unique resource for cricket historians, and now it is available online in a fully searchable edition.

This section is open to anyone and is free to use; click here to view the magazines, which are presented in yearly volumes.

Philip Defriez has added an index of obituaries which appeared in the magazines.
