Origin of club
Hampshire County Cricket Club was founded on 12 August 1863 and played Hampshire's first first-class match against Sussex County Cricket Club at the Antelope Ground, Southampton on 7 May 1864. Sussex won by 10 wickets. James Lillywhite, who had taken ten wickets in the first innings for 80 runs, took ten wickets in the match for 89 runs. Ten years later in 1874, Hampshire left the Plumer's Ground after a dispute about gate money.
As a result, they finished last in the County Championship in 1901 - 02 and 1902 -03. 1903 - 04 saw Hampshire win two matches early in the season against Gloucestershire and Leicestershire, but until late August they were worrying about relegation to the second division. However, after winning at Essex and defeating Somerset twice, Hampshire ended the season in eighth place. South African professional Offie Williams was engaged for 1904 - 05 but he was not a great success and his performances were hampered by injury.
An opportunity arose in 1902 when the membership of Northamptonshire declined, a number of their member clubs were invited to form a new administrative and playing entity under the name and style of Northamptonshire County Cricket Club, at Morborne Road, Northampton. The invitation was accepted in 1903 as conditions were becoming difficult at the County Ground, Southampton. The move was not without controversy though and seventeen members resigned to remain at the County Ground.
It was around this time that Hampshire began to experience a downward trend in its fortunes. Although the club continued to produce cricketers who went on to represent England, the County Championship was won by Lancashire and Gloucestershire for the next 20 years. In their 83 first-class matches between 1900 and 1905, Hampshire won four times, and lost 38 times. After 1905 Hampshire's first-class status was lost for five years as the County Championship expanded to 16 clubs.
Sympathisers in the Territorial Army realised that Hampshire cricket could not continue at this rate and formed an unofficial Sixteenth Battalion, composed of civilian players. The Battalion played two matches - one against the MCC in 1901, which they won, and another against Surrey at The Oval later that year. The latter was their first appearance at that ground, where Hampshire have always been an infrequent visitor.
