Cricket Club Cheshire
« on: Tuesday 22 June 21 07:55 BST (UK) »
I know nothing about this photograph except the photographs name on the cover. That is Holland Park Lane Macclesfield.

I originally thought it would be Macclesfield Cricket Club but thinking about the Blazers I wonder if it is Cheshire County Cricket Club?

What about the date? I thought late 1930s, but the pale coloured suits were they in fashion in the 1930s?
I guess it could be post war 1940s, 1950s or even 1960s.
Still wearing old fashioned Cricket boots but when did they go out?

Anyone have an idea about the date?
Cross Steeple Claydon Bucks,  Jennings Steeple Claydon Bucks,  Steel Byfield Northants,  Rogers Northants,  Wheeler Oxon,  Roberts Oxon,  Bonham Oxon/ Middleton Cheney Northants,  Maycock Northants,  Abbott Northants , Newman Northants, Buckingham Bucks, Hart Warks, Newth Gloucs.

From Wikipedia: Cheshire played a Minor Counties championship at the Macclesfield Cricket Club ground from 1921- 31 (incl). Minor Counties cricket then returned to the ground in 1949. Cheshire does not appear to have won the championship during these periods.
