Merewether District Cricket Club
Established in 1921, Merewether District Cricket Club has a long and successful history as part of the Newcastle District Cricket Association.
Regarded as the most successful cricket club in NSW Country, Merewether is proudly sponsored by South Leagues Club. The partnership between Souths and Merewether was forged more than a decade ago and is a bond built on success.
An innovative and dedicated committee led by president Ken Beckett has generated tremendous on-field success for Merewether. The Lions are currently First Grade Minor and Major Premiers, Third Grade Minor Premiers, Tom Locker Cup Champions and Denis Broad OAM Cup Champions.
First grade captain Simon Moore is a NSW Country Cricket stalwart and one of many players in the club to represent Newcastle and NSW Country in recent seasons.
