Trent Bridge staged its first Test in 1899 and is a regular, and popular, fixture on the international circuit. It used to be the shared home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and Notts County Football Club, but when the football and cricket seasons were considered to have become too overlapped (as far back as 1910) the football club moved a couple of hundred yards away to Meadow Lane. Trent Bridge has been home to some of the finest cricketers in the world; Gary Sobers, Clive Rice and Richard Hadlee have all graced the ground and left a permanent mark on its history. It has hosted some memorable moments of international cricket; in 1965 Graeme and Peter Pollock led South Africa a famous victory; Graeme made a century that is still considered one of the finest innings played by a South African. In 1989 Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh gave the England attack a day to forget, when they batted through the first day, reaching 301 without loss. The ground has undergone some significant developments over the years. The office block that is as much a part of Trent Bridge as the pavilion was built after a corner of the ground was sold off to make money, and more recently the Radcliffe Road and Fox Road stands, with their stylish architecture, have made Trent Bridge one of the best viewing grounds in the country. The Trent Bridge Inn is one of the best venues for a post-match drink.
