Cricket suitable for all ages, matches throughout Sussex and into
Hampshire. We run one Saturday and one Sunday XI playing some of
the best sides in the area, mostly with reciprocal home and away
Some of the matches are against League sides when they have window
in their League fixtures, but all our games are played under friendly
rules with time rather than fixed overs. .
Home games for the
majority of the season start
at 2:30pm with an
interval between innings for tea at 5 pm and 20 overs in the last
hour starting at 6:30pm.
After the match we retire to the HENTY
PUB (01 903 241 254)
which is located just north of the Railway crossing in Ferring Village.

after 1 mile the road becomes a dual-carrageway , cross the first
roundabout and past palatine park on you left you will then come

a pedestrian bridge above and college on you right.

south on Goring Street.

From the WEST:

2 miles before entering Worthing you will notice a large intersection
on the dual-carrageway with a bridge over the road. Take the left
slip road just before the bridge signposted to patching/goring/Ferring
the bridge and take the first exit signposted for Ferring/Goring.

junior school immediately on you left hand side and approx. 500yards

arrive too early you may find this padlocked, please be patient
as all the parking for cricket is within the ground on the right

and several committee members have keys to the ground and one of
them will appear probably about 30 mins before the start of play.
