Trent Bridge was first opened in 1841 by William Clarke, husband of the proprietress of the Trent Bridge Inn and himself Captain of the All England Cricket Team. Trent Bridge hosted its first Test match in 1899, for England playing against Australia. It used to be the shared home of Nottingham County Cricket Club and Notts County Football Club. But when the Football and Cricket seasons seemed to have become overlapped (back in 1910), the Football club moves a couple of hundred yards away to Meadow Lane.


Ground:

Trent Bridge is widely considered as one of the best grounds in the world to watch cricket. Trent Bridge pavilion, kept with the architectural parameters of its 1889 foundation, is thought of as one of the most renowned trademarks of cricket because it faces the wickets at an angle. Commencing in 2007, it has undergone redevelopment with the construction of a new stand to replace the Parr stand and the West Wing and the addition of one to five extra seatings at the front of several stands this increased the capacity of the ground from 15,358 to 17,500. The Smith-Cooper stand was officially opened by Prince Philip in 2008. Bowling takes place from the Pavilion End and the Radcliffe Road End, with the wickets laid a square of the Fox Road, William Clarke and Smith Cooper stands.

It has hosted some of the finest and most memorable matches in the history of the sport. In 1965, Graeme and Peter Pollock led South Africa to a famous victory, marked by an incredible century by Graeme which is still considered as one of the best by any South African ever. 1989, Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh gave the English side a day to forget when they batted the whole day, scoring 301 runs without the loss of a single wicket.
