THE Cricket Club needs ball sponsors for the coming season. With the increased number of matches the Club will be playing in the coming months, and the rising cost of cricket balls, they now need at least 50 sponsors at £30 each to supply the correct number of balls for the teams this summer.
Sponsors will see their names in the Fixture Card as a small thank you for supporting East Grinstead Cricket across all age groups.
“Imagine – it could be your ball that takes the wicket that wins the Premier League in 2016,” said a Club spokesman.
- Indoor nets start on 3 March – new members very welcome.

THE Mighty Stags, as the Forest Row Cricket Club is known to its fans, need more players.
They have four Saturday league teams – the 1st and 2nd teams play in the East Sussex Cricket League, Divisions 2 and 7 respectively, with the 2nd team full of promising young players who were a key part in their promotion last season.
The 3rd team plays in Mid-Sussex Cricket League in Division 5, and the 4th team plays in the Stoner Conference League which consists of young players and parents.
Forest Row CC also has a Sunday friendly side, which plays teams all around Sussex.
And there’s the T20 side which plays on mid-week evenings, in its own league against local teams.
But spokesman Matt Woodward says the Club needs more players of all standards to join before next season.
“We achieved promotion for our 2nd team last Season, as well as seeing our 4th team reaching the final of the Stoner Conference Robin Divall Trophy.
“But we are looking to promote the Club even further and attract more players. The format of the game is different in each league we play which will suit every type of player both competitively and socially.”

EAST Grinstead’s cricketers lost their second Sussex Premier Division match in a row when they went down away to reigning champions Roffey yesterday.
They went into the match looking to put last week’s defeat at the hands of Preston Nomads behind them and batsman Fynn Hudson-Prentice scored an impressive 90 runs before a confident Grinstead declared at 200.
But despite the loss of a couple of early wickets, Roffey held their nerve, and solid performances at the wicket saw them bat their way to victory with eight balls in hand.
