East Preston Cricket Club

East Preston Cricket club’s home is the Warren Recreation Ground in Sea Road.

The club currently has two senior teams competing in the West Sussex Invitation Leagues. The 1st XI, under captain Gary Weedon, play in Division 1 and are hoping to build on their excellent 3rd place finish in 2014. The 2nd XI are looking to bounce back immediately from last year’s relegation to Division 7. The club also has a Sunday XI playing friendly fixtures.

The junior section (ages 10-16) is considered to be vital for the future of the club. Colts training is undertaken by specialist volunteer coaches on Thursday and Friday evenings; under 16’s practise with the seniors on Tuesday evenings. This year, under 13, 14 and 15 teams will represent the club in West Sussex leagues; also, several teams will be entered into the excellent Sussex Junior Cricket Festival, played in August. East Preston colts have a proud record of success in both league and Sussex Festival competitions. New for 2015 is an under 19 twenty-twenty competition.

The club needs and welcomes new playing members at both junior and senior levels. Volunteer helpers are also required to coach juniors, umpire, score or help in other ways. Specialist coaching and officiating courses are available.
