1. Aslockton Cricket Club

Our cricket club has been traced back in our records and the archives of Nottingham library and the earliest record that can be found is that the club, then known as Whatton Cricket Club played a match in 1815 against a side from Car Colston and Screveton. Our records show that in 1870 Captain Edward Hall of Whatton Manor was the President of the Club, a position held by a member of the Hall family until 1919.  A record shows that on Tuesday 16th May 1876 a match between Stathern United C.C. played a friendly match against Whatton-in-the-Vale which resulted in favour of Stathern; Whatton batting first scored 78 runs with Mr. Pell scoring 25 runs and Stathern scoring 100; Whatton batted again scoring 44 with 13 extras being recorded. Prior to 1898 the club played on a ground behind the ‘Griffins Head’ at Whatton. Apparently during the season of 1897, a visiting team (Notts. Police) took rather a lot of persuading to vacate the Griffin Head after a lunchtime break, much to the annoyance of Captain Hall. He called an extra ordinary general meeting because he felt that the club needed a fresh start after such goings on following a disastrous season. At this meeting he informed the committee that he had arranged the transfer to our present home on Dark Lane, arrangements were made with the ex-groundsman from Trent Bridge to supervise the laying of a new playing square for the 1898 s
