Text

"[C]ricket was brought to Saint John by the students who went to the Collegiate School in Fredericton.  At that time, cricket was far more advanced in the 'celestial' city.  When the students returned to Saint John [from Fredericton], they brought with them the game of cricket. The military leased to the new club a large field behind the military barracks. They formed the 'Saint John Cricket Club' in the year 1855."
