Billingshurst Cricket Club

July 2016

First League Win

With its first league win under its belt for the season, Billingshurst Cricket Club is excited about the future and Thakeham is delighted to support the team which plays at Jubilee Fields, just minutes from its Head Office at Summers Place, Billingshurst. In a three year sponsorship partnership, Billingshurst Cricket Club will feature the Thakeham lion on team players shirts – we hope it brings them strength, courage and a sense of pride!

Club Heritage

With a history dating back to 1831, Billingshurst Cricket Club has gone from strength to strength. The current Club was established in circa 1831 and today has around 150 members.

The Club has seen a gradual rise to success, progressing through the West Sussex League in the 1990s to become a successful member of the Sussex County League, then in 2015 a promotion for the first time in the Club’s history to the Premier Division of Sussex, and remaining in the division for the current 2016 Season. The future looks bright for this local cricket club.

The Club is particularly proud of its Colts teams of Under 9, 10, and 14s. The Colts Section is one of the most important parts of the Club as it continues to grow and, along with the 1st, 2nd & 3rd XI’s, demonstrates the Clubs sense of pride in its many ‘Home Grown’ players.

The Season Ahead

Both the Club and Thakeham appreciate the importance of sport, teamwork and bringing the local community together – people of all ages learning from each other in a fun and, let’s face it, competitive environment! Thakeham wishes Billingshurst Cricket Club every success for the season ahead and we will be heading down to Jubilee Fields to show our full support over the coming season.
