Formed in 1920 the club has expanded in recent years. It currently runs four League teams on weekends, a midweek team, two women’s teams and six junior sides catering for all standards of play. The 1st XI play in the Northumberland League and the 4th XI are run as a development side in the West Tyne 2nd Division.
A recent increase in indoor cricket, in which the club has recorded recent success in both the men and women’s competitions, means the game is now played almost throughout the year.
The club has a strong band of volunteers supporting all the activities and a squad of qualified coaches. Coaching sessions are available for all age groups during the spring and summer periods.
The club also hosts festivals, cup games and Women/junior County games.
The club is also home to Stocksfield Football Club, Prudhoe & Stocksfield RUFC and Stocksfield Striders running club. All the sport clubs based there provide coaching, support and encouragement for those wishing to play. There is a strong ethos of local sport for local people.
Stocksfield CC welcomes all players, supporters, spectators and visiting teams. We hope they enjoy their time with us.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
