The exact date when Morton Cricket Club was established is presently unknown. Recent research has shown however that the club was in existence in 1863. The club has scorebook records from 1863 in matches involving Morton v Brigg and Morton v Gate Burton.

In the 1880s the club was known as ‘St Pauls Cricket Club’ taking its name from the St Pauls Church in Morton only to become known again as Morton Cricket Club around the turn of the century.

Morton has played its cricket at various locations during its existence including the Queen Elizabeth High School Thonock Sports Ground and also a field which is now used for farming crops that is located immediately next to the railway line at the bottom of Thonock Hill. For the majority of its history however Morton has played its cricket from Morton Playing Fields which were formerly the grounds of Southlands House.

The Club at present plays its cricket at Morton Playing Field which has undergone some major improvements in recent years.
