Founded in 1941 as Harrow Weald Boys Club by Steve Martin (The Old Man).
During the war certain members were not eligible for call-up and took over the Parkfield Table Tennis Club in Parkfield Avenue, off Headstone Lane, who were very short of members as most of them were away fighting. The main person at that time being Scruff Baker.
During the war Saddlers Mead was turned into allotments, but the cricket square was left untouched. After the war the previous user of the ground, Hatch End CC, based themselves in Grimsdyke Road so Steve Martin claimed the ground for Parkfield.
The original clubhouse was built in 1952 and Parkfield Sports Club became firmly established running cricket and football although at that time cricket was the biggest section.
In 1977 West Harrow Nomads were absorbed into Parkfield CC.
The Club founded in 1934. The main nucleus was employees of HMSO Wealdstone, looking to move up to a higher standard of cricket. In 1963 the then Secretary, Percy Lanning, saw a '100 years ago' article in the Harrow Observer refering to a Headstone CC founded in 1863. This prompted him to make a subtle change to the club's 'history'.
For many years, the club's home ground was Headstone Manor. However in the late 1970s the quality of the wicket deteriorated: and the club tried several alternative home venues, principally the BR Sports Ground at Headstone Lane. This remained the home for a number of years until British Rail sold up and the club were forced out. A few more nomadic years ensued in which the club were losing money and players annually, until they were left with just a Sunday side and a handful of Saturday players and it was looking like the club may have to fold. Then came the lifeline.
Parkfield & Headstone CC
At the end of 2001 season Parkfield CC approached Headstone CC with an offer for a partnership between the two clubs. Parkfield were struggling to fulfill 2nd Team fixtures and Headstone had had to cancel their Saturday friendly programme due to a lack of players. The result was that from 2002 Headstone provided players to Parkfield thus enabling 2 league sides to continue and Headstone's Sunday side moved to Saddlers Mead to play on alternate Sundays to Parkfield's own Sunday team.
Since then the partnership moved from strength to strength and it soon became obvious that a merger into one club would be the best way forward. Parkfield's Sunday players did not buy into the new vision and left, but the void was filled by Headstone running 2 sides in 2005, a result of a highly successful recruitment drive.
At the AGM after the 2005 season Parkfield CC and Headstone CC formally merged to become Parkfield & Headstone CC.
In our first season, 2006, the 2nd team won promotion. In 2007 the 1st team won promotion. In 2008 the 3rd team won promotion.
