  • History of LCCC
    1877 the Leicestershire Cricket Ground Co Ltd purchased 16 acres of land and laid out the Grace Road ground which was opened for cricket in 1878 the company levied a fee to the County Club for matches and practice and took 20 of gate receipts In July 1878 the Australians played Leicestershire which was the first county to make a financial arrangement with the tourists Some 30 000 watched during the three days still a record for Leicestershire Next year 1879 the Club was reformed on the lines we know today but in spite of having fine players such as Pougher and Woodcock it was not ranked as first class until 1895 mainly due to the efforts of the captain C E de Trafford The outstanding event during these second class years was the defeat of the Australians in 1888 Crowds were small as only horse trams came to the bottom of Grace Road so fresh plans were made and the Aylestone Road ground opened in 1901 modest playing success was achieved but there were many fine players such as C J B Wood Knight King Coe and Jayes After the First World War the pattern continued the side always strong in bowling lacked enough good batsmen and it was virtually carried by Astill and Geary In those days counties relied on native born men and Leicestershire with its small population could not produce enough top class players After the Second World War the Club s lease was not renewed by the Corporation so a new home had to be found Fortunately Grace Road was still there and the Education Committee allowed the club limited use However playing and watching conditions were atrocious Many of the pre war players had retired including Astill Geary and Armstrong In 1950 C H Palmer joined as secretary and captain subsequently to become Chairman and President and he was also elected President of MCC He had the services of the two great Australian all rounders Jackson and Walsh as well as Tompkin who died at an early age but only modest success was achieved F M Turner who had joined the professional staff in 1951 was appointed Secretary in 1960 then later Manager and Chief Executive Always full of original ideas he introduced the Midlands K O Cup in 1962 and this was the forerunner of present one day cricket There was another Leicestershire innovation in 1908 when it was the first county to start county matches on Saturdays After several depressing seasons at the bottom of the table Tony Lock was persuaded to join the county in 1965 and his inspired leadership brought so much improvement that third position was reached After he left two poor years followed until Ray Illingworth came in 1969 to captain Leicestershire In that year the great Australian G D McKenzie joined the Club and in 1972 the County won the Benson and Hedges Cup the first major honour of the Club The John Player Sunday League was
