Since 1905 Liversedge Cricket Club has been at the heart of Roberttown and the surrounding area. The grounds are picturesque, and every third year hosts the final of the oldest known cricket cup competition in cricket’s history, The Heavy Woollen Cup.

The senior teams compete in the Central Yorkshire league, with both its first and second teams making a strong promotion push in their relative divisions during this 2013 season. The two teams have over 30 players eligible to play, many of whom still play junior cricket, with a couple of these youngsters representing Yorkshire County Cricket Club at their respective age groups.
First team captain and Richard Alan Group employee, Graeme Winn, commented: “Liversedge, like many clubs locally, has found sponsorship and funding difficult in recent years, so when Richard Alan Group agreed to help us we were very appreciative. In their separate ways, Richard Alan Group and Liversedge Cricket Club support the local area and so it is great to have the two together and, of course, I am proud to wear the company’s logo every weekend during the season!”
