Scarborough Cricket Club

Replacement of stadium seating


Scarborough Cricket Club has called its famous North Marine Road Ground home since 1863. This iconic old ground has seen some of the greatest names in the sport grace the outfield.

Nestled close to the sweeping panoramic views of Scarborough’s North Bay, this historic venue has remained at the heart of Yorkshire sporting folklore for over 150 years. Today, it remains one of England’s most treasured cricket grounds.

Revamping the West Stand

With support from North Yorkshire Council and Scarborough Town Deal Board, the club received a funding contribution which enabled them to make significant upgrades throughout the ground.

In step, Stadia by GL events were honoured to be entrusted with supplying and installing 940 GL-S tip up seats as part of the major refurbishment to the West Stand.

Out with the old

With the existing wooden bleacher seats damaged from exposure to the elements, the club was intent on procuring more durable, general admission seats for its spectators.

The GL-S model from Stadia by GL events possesses essential attributes that contribute to the preservation of their lifespan, including a concealed seat ring to prevent rust and water damage, UV and fire resistance, and anti-vandalism properties.

Client satisfaction

During the stadium renovation works, it was important to maintain awareness of other contractors working on-site. Stadia by GL events collaborated closely with Scarborough Cricket Club, ensuring the project was completed safely, on schedule, and within the budget.

As a result, Scarborough Cricket Club expressed their delight with the outcome of the project. Club Official, Paul Harrand commented, “Stadia by GL events provided replacement seating for the West Stand. This refurbishment has made a huge difference, whilst retaining the character of our iconic cricket ground.

Setting new standards

With the help of Stadia by GL events, the club is able to meet new stadium standards, due to be introduced by the England and Wales Cricket Board. Scarborough Cricket Ground will also be able to continue hosting Yorkshire matches, as it continues to serve as one of the counties cricketing outposts!
