Sussex Cricket Foundation are delighted to report that two cricket clubs recently opened new cricket nets in their respective communities.
Lewes Priory Cricket Club, situated at the Stanley Turner Ground in Lewes, saw 80 club members turn out at their net opening on Friday 21st April. As well as Sussex Cricket Foundation representatives, the club welcomed Sussex CCC’s Phil Salt and Ollie Robinson to the opening, along with the Mayor of Lewes Dr Graham Mayhew. The attendees were treated to the first ball in the new nets bowled by Mr John O’Connor, President of Lewes Priory.
Southwick Cricket Club officially opened their nets on Friday 28th April in partnership with Shoreham Academy, where the nets are situated. This innovative partnership will give students onsite constant access to cricket, as well as Southwick CC members. Representatives included Shoreham Academy, Sussex Cricket Foundation, Rob Chambers, ECB Regional Clubs and Facilities Manager (South Central) and Sussex CCC’s Chris Nash, who bowled the first official ball to Vice Captain Ben Brown in the new nets.
Well done to both clubs for raising funds for two excellent cricket facilities!
