The extremely popular “From The Spartan Archives” series is now into its eighth instalment, and today we are looking at a defining season in Spartan history.

The Spartan Archives have been reopened in 2020 and we’re bringing you one well and truly from the early days – November 1939 in fact – as the Spartan Cricket Club and CBC rivalry added one of its earliest chapters! Today, we are looking at a match from that season, against the CBC Old Boys…
After an extended hiatus, we’re now finally into our fourth edition in our “From The Spartan Archives” series, and today, we’re looking at an interesting albeit restricted chapter in Spartan Cricket Club history.

The first instalment in our new “From The Spartan Archives” series features something truly incredible – our first ever premiership trophy!
During our Annual General Meeting last Sunday, we were delighted to receive the Club’s first ever premiership memorabilia from Brian Waterer, who incredibly and unexpectedly brought it along, and it will now sit in prime position in our trophy cabinet!
Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you a collection of stories based on our very extensive Leeming Spartan history!
With the aid of two Spartan legends in Graeme Ashley and Brian Waterer, we’ll be working to organise a series of posts based on the history of the Club – including any amazing, funny, rare, and incredible bits of information that we’ve collected over the last ninety nine years!
A special thank you to Tim Allan for very kindly providing us with this incredible photo from the Spartan archives, which has quite a bit of history attached to it!
