In 1860, eight men planned to start up their own cricket club, they were Robert R. Campbell, Archibald F. Graham, J. Campbell Smith, Frank Martin, Charles Rennison, J.Bain, John Millar and H. Edminson. The club was named Kelburne C.C. after Lord Glasgow's estate at Fairlie in gratitude to his £10 donation.
The club moved to Whitehaugh in 1899 after the initial site at Blackhall was required for building. The first match took place against West of Scotland on 29th April 1899 and the current pavilion was added in 1936.
In 1947 the ground achieved international recognition when Scotland played against the touring South Africans and played a first-class match against Ireland in 1952. Other teams to visit in first-class matches included Lancashire, Yorkshire and the touring Indians.
The 1940's and 50's were a golden era for the club. Lead by Scotland international Willie Nicol, Kelburne were WDCU champions in 1947 & '52, Rowan Cup Winners in 1944, '46, '50 & '52 , and McCulloch Cup Winners in 1951 & '53.
Success continued into the 1960's and 70's as the club picked up the McCulloch cup in 1964 and the Western Cup in 1971. The club's name was written into Scottish cricket history when it won the inaugural Scottish Cup in 1966, known as the Rothmans Quaich at the time.
We have continued to compete for honours, winning WDCU Leagues in 2008 and 2009 and the Greenwood Trophy in 2016. The club also regularly competes with Inverurie CC for the Kenny McLeod trophy, in memory of the former Kelburne President and Inverurie Captain.
