The collection includes the earliest scoring-books, and membership and financial records covering periods crucial to the development of the club. In more recent times extensive correspondence of both the treasurer and fixtures secretary illustrate both the numerous problems involved in running a first-class cricket team with essentially amateur resources, and the many hours of devoted work put in by senior and junior club officials alike. These correspondence files also provide an insight into the relations between various senior clubs and national institutions at the heart of English cricket: the Marylebone Cricket Club and the Test and County Cricket Board.
The records are divided into 8 main sections: Scoring Books, in which the 1st XI scoring books commonly include details of Freshmen's and other trial matches; Minute Books and Membership Records; Financial Records; Correspondence: Treasurer, relating to the periods when J.G.W. Davies and M.J. Atkin were in office; Correspondence: Fixtures Secretary, mostly relating to the period when G. Christopher Morris of King's College was in office; Fenners's Ground and Pavilion; Club Histories; and Miscellaneous, including Club rules, correspondence, fixture cards, reports, scorecards, a souvenir brochure and an autograph book.
