FCC AGM 2021

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, this was held via a Zoom call on Sun 7th Feb. online. All members were invited and approximately 22 members attended which is more than we normally get when the AGM is held in person. Rob Miller reviewed the major activities of the club during the foreshortened season in 2020.

A new Committee was elected and the officer roles will be update on the committee page shortly.

Two senior officers of the committee have retired after many years of service: Ian Edwards our Secretary and Peter Bromley our Head Groundsman and Fixtures Secretary.

Ian has produced the minutes of the AGM and there will be a link to the PDF file HERE soon.

Completion of Sport-England Flood relief project at FCC in October 2020

In the Spring of 2020, clubs could apply for a grant to help recover facilities from the months of rain over the winter. Ferring CC was successful in this and during the first Covid-19 lockdown from March onwards, started to renovate the damaged square.

Significant amount of materials were purchased along with some additional equipment. Over several months the square was renovated using seed, loam, fertiliser and levelled using a tandem roller generously supplied by Arun District Council.

Renovation of most of the square was completed by early July when restrictions were lifted. Home matches resumed in August through to mid September when the remainder of the work was completed as part of the annual end of season workpartes.

In October all the budget had been accounted for, a completion report was submitted and sign-off received from Sport-England.

Ferring CC would like to thank Sport-England, all our suppliers and especially Arun Distinct Council parks department for all their support and help. We hope that the works performed will put the club in a better position to prepare for whatever 2021 brings.


Last game of the season

Sun 27th - Away Beeding & Bramber : Lost : B&B 207-4 in 35 overs, Ferring 136 all out

End of Season Workparties

As usual, these were planned for three weeks at the end of the season to ensure autumn renovations have a chance of completing before the ground temperature drops and the rain arrives.

These were planned on Sundays 13th, 20th and 27th September, weather permitting.

The first two Workparties had a poor turn out which made the work particularly hard, so we brought the third one on 27th Sept back to start at 09:00 hrs. There was just about enough support to enable us to erected the perimeter fencing.

Thanks to Alan Francis , Iain Wardley, Cameron Baldock, Chris Tams, Chris Bradley, Craig Burgess and of course our head groundsman of 32 years, Peter Bromley.

Revised fixture list for 2020

Due to some of the Covid-19 restrictions being lifted in July 2020, we had to revise our fixture card from 17th July onwards HERE

April , May, June, July, August


Suspension of all cricket during 2020 (March 2020)


Following Government and ECB directives in March 2020, All club cricket related activities were suspended until further notice, these included all training, match preparation, fixture planning and matches.

There was significant flood damage to the ground and particularly the square over the winter of 2019 and into spring 2020.

We successfully applied for a grant from Sport England. Once the government directives change and funds have been made available, there will be a plan to purchase and implement the remedial work on the square. This is dependant on when restrictions are lifted, ADC are able to recommence work on the outfield and supplies and facilities become available to plan our work.

Its likely to take several months to implement the work once all the requirements for safe working are met, we will supply updates on the status when we know more.

We thank all the VP's, Players and friends of our club for the support we have had whilst we attempt to keep the club going in these challenging times - thank you.
