The world’s first cricket web page

I think Sheffield Collegiate was the first cricket club in the world
to have a WWW presence, unless anyone out there can beat Summer 1993. For the record, this is the text of the very first cricket web page, published in September 1993.

Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club

Welcome to the Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club home page. While
Sheffield Collegiate is not connected with the University of Sheffield,

The Club

Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club was founded in 1881 and plays at
Abbeydale Park in Sheffield. Sheffield Collegiate runs three senior
sides who play in the Yorkshire League, the Ridings League, and the
Yorkshire & Derbyshire Club Cricket League. A further club side
plays non-league cricket on Sundays and midweek. Sheffield Collegiate
sponsors, organises, and coaches junior teams at the under 13, under
15, and under 17 level (all in the Sheffield & District Junior
