Goathland Cricket Club was formed in 1874 originally playing at another location within the parish they moved to the current site in 1878, buying the freehold of the land in 1996. It sits adjacent to Goathland Community Hub, which is also protected as a Centenary Field, and alongside The Old Railway Line which is a public bridleway.

Twelve English oak trees were planted along the railway line in 1920 by Mrs Kate Smailes in memory of the twelve men from the village who fell during World War I, one of whom was her son, George. A number of these men played for the village team prior to the conflict, all of whom are remembered on the village war memorial and on a cast plaque to the rear of St Mary's Church.
