English County Cricket Championship


A Brief History Of English County Cricket Championship

The Secretaries of the major cricket-playing counties met at Lord's on December 16th 1889 to agree the fixtures for the following season. A meeting attended by Gloucestershire, Kent, Lancashire, Middlesex, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Sussex and Yorkshire took place on the same day. This latter meeting agreed upon a method of deciding the order of merit between these first-class counties for the 1890 season. This was the birth of the first official county championship.
Prior to 1890, there were 'unofficial' county champions given the title by 'popular' or newspaper acclaim.
