SUSSEX CRICKET

YEARBOOK 2020


2 |


FROM

THE EDITOR WELCOME TO THE 2020 EDITION OF THE SUSSEX HANDBOOK. We are approaching another period of major change in our domestic game. Whatever your views on The Hundred, the ECB have invested a lot of money and energy into making it a success. The counties have benefitted financially as a result and throughout the pages of this year’s handbook you can discover just how different strands of Sussex Cricket will invest it to grow the game. I hope you will also find it as encouraging as I have to discover the game is in good health in Sussex. Participation levels among recreational cricketers have increased, bucking national trends, and women’s and girls’ cricket goes from strength to strength. The ‘shop window’ of course is the Sussex men’s team. Last year they fell frustratingly short in all three competitions, but the squad has been strengthened with some exciting additions and there is plenty of optimism going into the new season. Good luck to all involved. A few thank-yous. For design to Chris Hewitt and Gavin Graimes at Oliver & Graimes; for pictures to Alison McCreedy, Stephen Lawrence and Getty Images; to Paul Elford and Nick Sharp for the scorecards; Roger Packham for the obituaries and Norman Epps, who has again kept the records sections up to date. I’m also grateful to Rob Andrew, Sam Keir and Mark Judges at Sussex, not least for continuing to support the handbook when other counties are no longer producing one.

CHAIRMAN:

BOB WARREN WHILE THE 2019 SEASON WAS SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTING, WITH THE FIRST XI NOT QUITE REALISING THEIR POTENTIAL, THERE WAS STILL MUCH TO BE PLEASED ABOUT. OUR TWO CAPTAINS, BEN BROWN AND LUKE WRIGHT, HAD EXCELLENT SEASONS, OLLIE ROBINSON AGAIN EXCELLED WITH THE BALL, DAVID WIESE CONJURED SOME EXTRAORDINARY PERFORMANCES AND STIAAN VAN ZYL RETURNED FROM INJURY VERY SUCCESSFULLY. Our Championship season was going very well until a couple of poor results meant that promotion was not possible. Our Royal London One Day Cup performance was better than previous years but we still went out at the group stage. The Vitality Blast was completely different. We played quite brilliantly to win the group comfortably and gained a home quarter-final against Worcestershire. We posted what was thought to be a winning score, however a dropped catch and a fantastic innings by Moeen Ali meant that we missed out on Finals Day. Despite the disappointments of 2019 I look forward to 2020 with a fair amount of optimism. We have strengthened the squad with the addition of Mitchell Claydon, Travis Head, Stuart Meaker and Ravi Bopara while Rashid Khan will be returning for the Blast. Sussex Cricket is, of course, not just about the First XI. Since the amalgamation of Sussex County Cricket Club and the Sussex Cricket Board, Sussex Cricket is responsible for all cricket in the county: performance cricket and the recreational 4 | CHAIRMAN

game. It also ensures that everyone in the county has access to cricket in one form or another. Since the arrival of Richard Halsall our academy and pathway programme has been re-vitalised. Two boys from the Academy, Tom Clark and Will Sheffield, have earned professional contracts. Tom was selected for the Under-19 World Cup earlier this year and James Coles is England Under-15 captain. We have ten boys in the academy with ages ranging from 15-18. Four other 19-year-olds, while outside the academy, are considered of sufficient ability and promise to warrant specialist coaching. It is hoped that a number of these boys will progress to professional contracts. The pathway is now monitoring 740 boys and girls. This can only be done with the use of technology and Sussex is to the fore in this. Boys and girls are filmed either at practice or in play and the sequence is analysed at Hove. After viewing, comments are sent to the respective coaches, and most importantly to the parents of the child being monitored.


Our commitment to women’s and girls can be seen in the tremendous growth in the number of females now playing cricket in Sussex. We are exceptionally lucky that many of our matches are played at the Aldridge Cricket Centre in Brighton, named after our president Sir Rod Aldridge. At the end of last season nearly 40 female teams were competing. Our girls pathway is seeing huge growth. In 2017 we had 80 girls turn up for assessment, in 2018 that increased to 180 and in 2019 it was up again to 230. In 2019, 98 girls made it onto our pathway programme. A number of our girls were called up by England. Ella McCaughan and Freya Kemp are both on the England Academy while Danni Wyatt, Linsey Smith, Georgia Elwiss, Sarah Taylor and Freya Davies all represented England in 2019, with Sarah announcing her retirement from international cricket at the end of the 2018 season after a long and successful career. Unlike in most other areas of the country, participation in recreational cricket has stabilised. Until 2018 there were four leagues in the county but under the leadership of Board members Gary Stanley and Daniel Oliver, they have become one consisting of nearly 340 teams in 34 divisions. Regular surveys have ensured that the players are playing the type of cricket they want. While the top two divisions are county-wide all the other divisions are regionalised, ensuring that travel times are kept to a minimum As I mentioned earlier, we are committed to ensuring that cricket is available to all members of Sussex society regardless of their physicality or background. The league programme and our commitment to those less fortunate are run by our wholly owned subsidiary the Sussex Cricket Foundation (SCF). The SCF is also responsible for delivering our Street Cricket programmes, the Chance to Shine initiative, in which over 10,000 schoolchildren participated last year, the ECB All Stars programme, which had 1,850 5-8 year-olds

involved in 2019, and Cricket Unleashed 2. Part of the SCF commitment is the programme we call DIScoverABILITY. In addition to the DIScoverABILITY day we ran at Hove last summer, when over 400 people attended and played cricket, the provision for a range of disability cricket continues to be an important part of the work of the Foundation. In the last year over 1,000 people played either Super Ones cricket or Table Cricket at ten different centres across the county. I am delighted to congratulate the visually impaired team who, inspired by the outstanding Dan Field, won the National T20 Cup. Our D40 and Super Nines teams both competed with passion in their respective competitions. During the last couple of years we have been moving towards ensuring the Board gets as close as possible to the Sport England recommendations on governance and diversity. I am pleased to tell members that we are progressing towards the agreed format. By 2021, as agreed at previous AGMs, your Board will consist of four members elected by Sussex members and two elected by the recreational clubs. Alongside these members will sit the Chief Executive and the Treasurer. This will leave four places to fill by appointing independent directors. That process has started. Jason Robinson was appointed in 2018 and in April 2020 Jacqui Bandy and Bibi Fortin Lees will become directors. Lastly and most importantly I hope members appreciate the amount of work undertaken by our leadership team, which is led by our highly respected Chief Executive Rob Andrew. Here’s hoping for trophies in 2020. Have a great season

CHIEF EXECUTIVE:

ROB ANDREW LAST YEAR WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY ONE FOR CRICKET IN ENGLAND, POSSIBLY THE MOST HIGH-PROFILE SINCE THE ASHES WAS REGAINED IN 2005. A FIRST 50 OVERS WORLD CUP TRIUMPH AT LORD’S, INCLUDING A SUPER OVER BOWLED BY SUSSEX’S JOFRA ARCHER – YOU REALLY COULD NOT HAVE SCRIPTED IT. We move forward into 2020 and arguably a new era for cricket in this country. There is a new TV deal including the return of cricket onto the BBC after a long absence. A new competition, The Hundred, for both men’s and women’s teams, and a new fiveyear strategic plan for cricket, including new funding for the First-Class counties for that period. One of the key elements for all counties is that it gives some clarity and certainty over financial matters so we can plan sensibly over the medium term. We are now working with the ECB to put the finishing touches to our own new five-year strategic plan which aligns to the ECB’s ‘Inspiring Generations’ vision. We will continue with our overriding purpose across the organisation which is ‘inspiring a passion for cricket’ while living by our values: Honesty, Respect, Accessibility, Enjoyment, Drive, Selflessness. We will share our plan once it is finalised, but we aim to prioritise the following headline areas of the business: • Inspire the next generation • Grow and support the game in our communities 6 | CHIEF EXECUTIVE

• Transform women’s and girls’ cricket • Develop grounds and infrastructure • Deliver high-performance cricket teams PERFORMANCE CRICKET This department under the leadership of Keith Greenfield has seen significant change over the last couple of years and we are now set up to deliver against the new five-year County Partnership Agreement (CPA) with the ECB. Our long-term aim is to produce home-grown players from our pathway for both Sussex and England. This covers both the boys’ and girls’ pathway which have increased in numbers significantly over the last couple of years. The structure of the season is changing this year with the Vitality Blast moving to June and early July, to make way for The Hundred in late July and August. The first-class counties will play the Royal London One-Day Cup in the same window as The Hundred, while Specsavers County Championship cricket is spread throughout the season apart from when The Hundred is taking place.


JOFRA ARCHER WAS ONE OF THE SUSSEX PLAYERS DRAFTED FOR THE HUNDRED AND WILL PLAY FOR SOUTHERN BRAVE.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE | 7


The draft for The Hundred took place last October and 11 Sussex players were selected. The challenge of managing the playing squad is becoming more difficult because of all the formats and competitions around the world, and a desire for more players to play white ball only. The pressure for this is only likely to grow in the coming years so the importance of developing our own players will only increase. The women’s Hundred team - Southern Brave will play matches at Hove and we will also host the women’s Hundred Finals Day. With the continued growth of the women’s game we will play our part in the expanded Southern Vipers’ programme as well as continuing with the Sussex girls’ age group and women’s programmes based out of the Aldridge Cricket Centre at the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA). We bid farewell to Andy Mackay as our Head Groundsman following 14 years in the role with massive thanks for everything he has done for the club, and best wishes for his new role as ECB’s Chief Pitch Inspector. We will no doubt see Andy regularly in the future. We are delighted to have appointed Ben Gibson from within the team to replace Andy. COMMUNITY CRICKET Under the leadership of Chris Coleman, and supported by the Trustees of the Sussex Cricket Foundation, we have structured our community team to take advantage of the new ECB strategy and to be in the best possible shape to support the needs of the game across all areas of the county. A particular focus in our new strategic plan will be to concentrate on the growth of junior participation for 5-11-year olds in order to inspire them to get involved at an early age and have a lifetime of enjoyment in the game. This will involve focussing on primary schools and through the All Stars and newly launched Dynamos programmes for junior participation. The second area for significant focus and growth is in the transformation of the women’s and girls’ game across the county. This will involve growing participation in both primary and secondary schools with an expanded secondary school programme for girls. We will also 8 | CHIEF EXECUTIVE

look to expand the number of clubs with girls and women’s sections and also increase the number of girls on our age-group pathway feeding into the Sussex and Southern Vipers’ teams. As well as continuing to support the newly formed 1st Central Sussex League and the needs of league cricketers across the county, we also need to cater for the needs of occasional players who want to fit cricket around their busy lives. In this regard we are delighted to launch the Sussex Slam, a midweek T20 competition which will see 69 new teams battle it out this summer for a place in the finals days at Hove. We are delighted by the response to this initiative and look forward to enjoyable cricket being played and new and returning players getting involved. COMMERCIAL Our commercial department under the leadership of Mark Judges has gone from strength to strength over the last 12 months. We now have an integrated communications and marketing strategy covering all aspects of the organisation and driven by the commercial team. We have a strong brand message across Sussex Cricket and the Sussex Cricket Foundation and are very much one organisation focussing on ‘inspiring a passion for cricket’. This is allowing us to have a focussed sales strategy. All our messaging is managed by the commercial team with the aim of maximising sales across all aspects of the business. We had an incredibly successful campaign last year, particularly around the Vitality Blast. Helped by good weather and the team’s performances we sold out six of our seven group games, the quarter final (in two days) and concerts by Sir Elton John and Rod Stewart. Our County Championship and One-Day Cup revenue held up and we had good support for women’s international cricket and Kia Super League finals day. We are grateful for the continued and long term support of our major commercial partners, 1st Central, Cow Corner Investments, Galloways Accounting, Jointing Tech and Aldridge Foundation plus the many corporate partners who have supported the club over the last 12 months and into this year.


NEW HOSPITALITY FACILITIES ARE PART OF THE PLANS FOR GROUND DEVELOPMENT

OPERATIONS The operations team led by Ian Waring continue to ensure everything runs safely at Hove and we continue to make improvements in all parts of our delivery. In addition, we look after our academy ground at Blackstone and support Arundel and Eastbourne in their delivery of first-class cricket in Sussex. This year we return to Horsham for a 50 overs match and the team will assist Horsham to deliver an excellent event on and off the pitch. As we mentioned last year, a massive focus has been the masterplan for the Sussex Cricketer pub site and the improvements to the ground. We presented our vision in February 2019 and following feedback and a second public exhibition in September we submitted a formal planning application last autumn for phase 1 on the pub site which is a mixed-use residential and commercial scheme comprising 37 apartments, a new pub and commercial offices. Phase 2 is a new hospitality, conference and event centre with a new reception area for the ground on the site of the current Wilbury offices. Finally, phases 3 and 4 include new permanent seating at the north and south-east areas of the ground. Planning permission for phase 1 has just been granted.This year we will also host another major concert when Michael Bublé comes to Hove in August.

PEOPLE AND FINANCE We have a strong leadership team in place to take the club forward over the next few years with a clear strategy supported by the board of Sussex Cricket Ltd and the trustees of the Sussex Cricket Foundation. With Kay Gunn leading our people strategy, we will continue to focus on our leadership development with a clear focus on our organisational values. They are at the heart of everything we do across the whole of Sussex Cricket and we all have a huge responsibility to implement them successfully. As we develop our new strategic direction there will be even greater focus on working together across all departments as ‘one’ organisation. I am delighted to welcome Alan Bradshaw to the senior leadership team as our new Finance Director. Alan has joined us from Brighton College at a very exciting time for cricket and the club. Financially, the club remains in a strong position with no external debt and a robust medium-term plan for financial sustainability. This is critical for our long-term future and hopefully the realisation of the development plans will make the club financially stronger. There are very exciting times ahead both on and off the field. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you in the summer.

ROB ANDREW, CHIEF EXECUTIVE CHIEF EXECUTIVE | 9


DIRECTOR OF CRICKET

KEITH GREENFIELD LAST SEASON WAS FRUSTRATING FOR ALL INVOLVED, ENDING SO NEAR BUT YET SO FAR IN ALL COMPETITIONS. A YEAR OF INJURIES AT SOME REALLY PIVOTAL MOMENTS HINDERED US IMMENSELY BUT THERE WAS ALSO A LOT OF PROGRESS IN OUR PLAYING SQUAD THAT CAN ONLY BE GOOD FOR THE FUTURE OF SUSSEX CRICKET. In the Specsavers County Championship we stayed in contention until the penultimate game of the season, but injuries at key times to key people really made it a challenging year to drive forward for the victories that were required to gain promotion. In the Royal London One Day Cup, qualification from the group stage was in our hands heading into the later stages of our game against Hampshire with David Wiese and Ben Brown at the crease, leading an epic run chase only to fall agonisingly short and miss out. Having dominated the South group in the Vitality Blast, we came unstuck thanks to an outstanding individual innings by Worcestershire’s Moeen Ali in the quarter-final. That was hard to take, especially after we missed opportunities earlier in the game. Ollie Robinson was again outstanding in the 10 | DIRECTOR OF CRICKET

Championship and almost single-handedly at times kept us in games and the competition. To be able to secure his services for the next four years is hugely important for our desire to be promoted and become a force in the first division. Mir Hamza started well but a back injury meant frustratingly we hardly had our first-choice bowling attack available at all during the season. In the one game where we did, against Middlesex at Lord’s, we won by an innings. Our top-order batting, like virtually every other county, needs to be more consistent with players able to spend more time at the crease establishing a base so that our middle order can excel in building match-winning totals and not just doing repair work to keep us in games. Captains Ben Brown and Luke Wright led our teams very well


throughout the year. We have continued to try and improve the squad and have made some excellent and exciting signings. We have Travis Head, who is an outstanding top-order batsman, as our overseas player to boost our batting line-up and Ravi Bopara, whose all-round capabilities will strengthen us as he focuses on getting back into the England one-day squads. Stuart Meaker, who has joined us from Surrey, will be a great asset and provide the extra fire power when we are missing Jofra Archer in our attack while Mitch Claydon brings experience and more depth to our seam bowling. We said farewell to Abi Sakande, who will look to forge a career away from Hove. We wish him well. This year domestic cricket changes again with a new structure. Championship cricket will predominantly be played at the start and end of the season, the Vitality Blast spread in two main blocks and The Hundred tournament being played at the same time as the 50 overs competition. This presents a new set of challenges. We have seen that our players are in high demand around the world throughout the year and confirmation of this came at The Hundred draft with Sussex having more players chosen than any other county, a testament to the quality in our squad. The new five-year County Partnership Agreement brings significant changes with the ECB, and new expectations and obligations to deliver better cricketers for England among the counties. It means our successful women’s pathway will get extra focus and investment, and a new regional structure will be put in place over the coming years. Our partnership with the Aldridge Foundation and the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy will continue to flourish and enable a high-quality programme for cricket talent from school year 7 upwards to be provided, as well as a developing a facility for our women’s and girl’s pathway activities. Richard Halsall continues to develop our boys’ pathway programme to provide the numbers and quality of cricketers that we will require in the years to come. This should also result in a better quality of cricket being played across Sussex and ultimately strengthening the Sussex League. More staff have been appointed to Richard and our pathway players, as our coaching and support structures

THE PART SUSSEX PLAYED IN MAKING JOFRA ARCHER A WORLD CUP WINNER SHOULD NOT BE OVERLOOKED.

have had to move forward to cover the specific skill sets throughout the pathway from top to bottom. The Sussex League is now the largest amateur league in the world and fully integrated. This was thought to be impossible to implement only a couple of years ago. The challenge going forward, as it has always been, is to ensure the quality of cricket played in the top divisions is strong enough to produce future county and England cricketers but at the same time delivering participation numbers and the type of cricket that keeps the game flourishing at all levels in Sussex. My highlight in 2019 was Jofra Archer reaching the levels he did in both the World Cup final, when he bowled the Super Over, and the Ashes series. Watching him perform so well was a special moment for all of us involved in Jofra’s Sussex journey: from a broken young bowler with back stress fractures, he rebuilt himself supported by skilled medical staff. All those involved in Jofra’s rehabilitation were prepared to commit to a long-term project with both the Middleton and Horsham clubs enabling him to have further playing opportunities and experiences. This allowed us to give Jofra game time as early as possible. His commitment to fulfilling the dream of first being a professional cricketer with us, and then for England, should be an inspiration for everyone. We played our part, which made watching those special days last summer even more sweet. Enjoy the summer.

HEAD COACH

JASON GILLESPIE IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THE 2020 SEASON IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. AFTER A SEASON THAT I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE AS ‘MISSED OPPORTUNITIES’, WE GO INTO 2020 WITH A LOT OF OPTIMISM. Our members and supporters will note that we have a number of changes to our squad and that 2020 as a whole is destined to be a season like no other in county cricket. As a coaching staff, we are excited with our new arrivals at the club so I would like to welcome Travis Head, Ravi Bopara, Mitch Claydon and Stuart Meaker to Sussex. These guys will add value to our teams on the ground and also be fantastic for our dressing room environment. As experienced players, I look forward to the opportunity for them to share their knowledge with their teammates and us coaches so that we can all learn and improve. I want to also welcome Tom Clark to the professional staff. A young left-handed batsman, he got an opportunity late last season in the County Championship side. He has come through the Sussex pathway and we all hope he embraces and enjoys the experiences this season. I mentioned that it will be a season like no other in county cricket. For a start there is a new competition, The Hundred, which will be played a bit later in the summer. There has been a lot of differing opinions about The Hundred, but we should be very proud that so many Sussex players are thought of so highly and were in demand at draft. With The Hundred being played at the same 12 | HEAD COACH


‘THE WAY LUKE WRIGHT HAS LED HIS TEAM HAS BEEN VERY IMPRESSIVE,’ SAYS HEAD COACH JASON GILLESPIE

time as the Royal London One Day Cup and this will no doubt create opportunities for players from our second team, academy and possibly Sussex League cricket. A word that you will hear me use regularly throughout the season is ‘adapt’. As players and coaches, it is something that we will need to be very good at if we are going to perform strongly this season. With the ever-changing landscape of our great game, we all need to adapt to the situation and focus on the task at hand. Whether this is adjusting from four-day cricket to T20, personnel changes or conditions, as a squad we must be able to go with the flow because it will be all hands on deck and we will need everyone to contribute to the team’s success. We are very fortunate to have two fantastic leaders in club captain Ben Brown and Vitality Blast captain Luke Wright. The way they have led their teams over the last two seasons has been very impressive. Our members and supporters only see their leadership out on the field. As coaches, we get to see first-hand how they interact with their players

in the dressing room, in team discussions and during one-to-one conversations with teammates and our staff at our club. I have seen the growth in them as leaders of people which has been a real positive in my time at the club thus far. I am looking forward to working with them again this summer. We are very excited about the season ahead. I am looking for continued progression in all areas of our game as individuals and as a team. I’m a big believer in focussing on the positives as opposed to dwelling on the negatives. The key is learning from our successes and failures and to continue to strive to be better each and every session and each and every day. ‘You can’t do more than give it your very best’ is a phrase I like to use. I can assure you that this squad of players will be doing all they can to be the best players, teammates and ambassadors for Sussex. I am looking forward to seeing you all at the cricket this summer - come and say hello!

OLLIE ROBINSON PROFILE

MISTER CONSISTENCY OLLIE ROBINSON CELEBRATES THE WICKET OF JAMES HARRIS, ONE OF EIGHT HE TOOK IN THE FIRST INNINGS AGAINST MIDDLESEX AT HOVE LAST SEASON.

14 | OLLIE ROBINSON


OLLIE ROBINSON’S REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPROVED CRICKETERS IN THE COUNTY GAME HAS TAKEN HIM TO THE BRINK OF TEST RECOGNITION. Ollie, the stepson of England’s former assistant coach Paul Farbrace, hit the best form of his career in 2018, the year “Dizzy” Gillespie took over as Sussex coach, replacing Mark Davis, and led the side to the final of the Vitality Blast and to the brink of promotion in the Specsavers County Championship. Robinson took 74 Championship wickets at 18.66 and followed that up last year with another 63, including career best figures of 14 for 135 in the win over Middlesex at Hove towards the end of the season, with a first innings return of 8 for 34. That outstanding performance won him his county cap and, early in 2020, he signed a new contract with Sussex committing him to the club for another four years. When you add to his fast bowling a first-class batting average of over 20, an ability to bowl occasional off-spin and a safe pair of hands in the field and you clearly have one of the most important cricketers at the club. He had made an unforgettable start to his Sussex career. On his first-class debut, at Chesterle-Street in April 2015, he scored a run-a-ball century, batting at No 9, becoming the first Sussex player to make a hundred on his first appearance since 1920. He put on 164 for the last wicket with Matthew Hobden. He took 46 wickets in his debut season, including 6 for 63 in a victory over Warwickshire at Hove. But it was in 2018 that Ollie really came of age under the guidance of Gillespie. He must have had reservations about the new coach because Jason had been in charge of Yorkshire in 2014 when the club terminated Robinson’s contract. Gillespie must be congratulated for Robinson’s progress. But the player himself must take the bulk of the credit. He said: “When I went to Australia a few winters ago it improved my game. I learned to be patient. The ball out there doesn’t do as much as ours. And my fitness has improved,

allowing me to bowl more overs in a day, and longer spells.” Crucially, Ollie also added a yard to his pace. His consistency over the past two years was rewarded with a call-up from the England Lions last July and for the tour to Australia early in 2020. And this, says Gillespie, gave his bowler a great deal of encouragement. “Going away with the England Lions made Ollie realise that he is a little closer to the next level than he thought he was. And he’s seen how professionally that environment works. He wouldn’t be out of place at the next level.” “I can’t speak highly enough of Ollie Robinson,” added Gillespie. “He’s stepped up and in the last couple of years he’s been getting the rewards. I see a big tall guy of 6ft 5in who runs in and hits the bat hard, who swings it both ways, nibbles it both ways at a brisk pace. His height is a real weapon. “Once Ollie walks over that white line he’s brilliant. He’s as competitive a cricketer as you could wish to see. He researches opposition so well. He spends hours poring over footage and looking for ways to impact. “He’s improved his general professionalism in the gym and on the track. The work rate and recovery protocols are things we’ve spoken a lot about. They challenged him, but he’s responded and improved in those areas.” With reference to the victory over Middlesex last summer, Gillespie said: “I mean, 14 wickets in the match, including eight on the first day. Ollie was amazing. He led the attack. It looked a different game when he was bowling. He was incredible. And the number of overs he bowled in the match was phenomenal.” With a new contract, Robinson will aim to play the best cricket of his career at Sussex and who knows where it might lead if he produces the same consistent performances in the future as he did to earn his extended contract.

HOVE SET FOR A TRANSFORMATION

EVEN AFTER THE REDEVELOPMENT IS FINISHED SUSSEX SUPPORTERS WILL STILL BE ABLE TO WATCH FROM THE DECKCHAIRS

IN HIS OFFICE AT THE COUNTY GROUND, ROB ANDREW IS A PROPHET WITH PROPS. THE SUSSEX CEO COMMUNICATES HIS ENTHUSIASM FOR THE CLUB’S REDEVELOPMENT PLANS WITH AN ALMOST EVANGELICAL ZEAL, AND UNVEILS A NUMBER OF IMAGES TO REVEAL HOW THE GROUND WILL BE TRANSFORMED OVER THE NEXT 5-7 YEARS.

16 | THE CHANGING FACE OF HOVE

Work on the first two of the four phases, concentrating on the south-west corner of the ground, is expected to get under way later this year after planning permission was granted in March 2020. This is a £20m capital investment which will create 37 new homes, a pub, conference facilities and offices. “This is our home, and we intend to stay here,” said Andrew. “It’s a very special place, an amazing cricket ground in the middle of Hove. You can walk here from a hotel on the beachfront, or from the train station, and we’re 100 yards from Church Road. And we’ve been here for almost 150 years. “We want to stay here. We want to keep its character but modernise it and move it forward. We’ve been battling with the challenge of keeping it unique, of keeping it Hove, but at the same time moving forward. You can’t stand still. We have to improve things for spectators while we keep


driving our non-cricket revenue. None of us can survive on cricket alone.” Those of us who have been around for more than a third of the ground’s existence – I became a junior member in 1968 – have seen relatively little change in that time. There have been facelifts and improved facilities but the pavilion, which dates back to the 1880s, is still there, though there were extensions in 1921, while the upper pavilion was constructed in 1961. The magnificent main scoreboard dates back to the 1930s. The biggest change happened when the club sold off ground to the south of the playing area, which led to the construction of a block of flats. And it is the building of more new homes which is at the heart of the new development. Andrew says: “The south-west corner of the ground has been a development site in waiting for ten years or more. There was always a view before I arrived [three years ago] that something had to be done about the pub and the house next door, both owned by the club. And the pub’s lease AN ARTIST’S IMPRESSION OF THE NEW ENTRANCE TO THE COUNTY GROUND.

expired at the end of 2019. “We didn’t want to sell off the land, as we did with the south of the ground years ago. We didn’t want to lose control of this part of the ground. And we wanted a mixed residential and commercial development here. “We will have a new pub on the ground floor, flats above and some office space at the rear. We will create a new entrance, a piazza to walk into. There will be a proper entrance, a substantial facelift. Because at the moment, unless you know the place, you don’t really know you’re coming into a cricket ground. Sometimes you feel you’re walking into a pub car park. It’s not a particularly attractive entrance. We are constrained. The ground is what it is. We’re never going to be a 20,0000-seater stadium. But there are enough Test grounds in the country already. “The second phase will see us build a new conference and events space. It will be a ground and first floor area, and hopefully a roof terrace as well. Our current hospitality area is in the south-east corner of the ground, and it’s only a temporary building. We’re going to have a fivestar conference and banqueting space and it will operate on non-match days. “We had two public consultations, in February and September last year, and took feedback from our members and from the public. We’ve put the feedback into our design. Financially this is really important, and it’s the right thing to do for the club.” The plans for phases three and four are less certain, though the north of the ground will be reviewed and more permanent seating erected.

THE BUSINESS OF CRICKET THE BUSINESS OF CRICKET CONTINUES TO EVOLVE AND 2020 WILL BE NO DIFFERENT. WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF A NEW DOMESTIC COMPETITION, THE HUNDRED, COUPLED WITH THE CONTINUED THIRST FOR INFORMATION AND EVERCHANGING DELIVERY METHODS ACROSS VARIOUS DIGITAL PLATFORMS, CRICKET FANS GLOBALLY CAN ENGAGE WITH THE SPORT THEY LOVE WITH THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON. Before looking forward let’s take a breath and reflect on 2019. Sponsorship and hospitality revenues continued to hold firm despite a challenging market. Ticket and Membership revenue also remained consistent despite Sussex not hosting a tourist match in 2019. This is as a result of increased T20 sales which saw seven of our eight Vitality Blast matches sold out at The 1st Central County Ground. The increase in demand for Vitality Blast season tickets and individual match tickets saw Sussex top the occupancy chart among the counties at 98%, beating Middlesex and Surrey into second and third place. Off the field we continue to invest in our ticketing, communication, marketing and streaming platforms to ensure we can effectively communicate with both our members and fans, whilst ensuring they don’t miss any of the action. So, what does 2020 hold for Sussex Cricket? In short, more cricket at weekends, a new domestic competition, an increase in outground cricket and an improved live streaming service. With 19 days of County Championship cricket on weekends or Bank Holidays, matches at Arundel,

Eastbourne and Horsham, the return of a fixture against national county opposition, two England women’s Internationals, three women’s Hundred matches, seven floodlit Vitality Blast group matches and a Michael Bublé concert at The 1st Central County Ground it’s certainly going to be a busy year. Early signs indicate the demand for events at Sussex Cricket continues to soar with limited tickets available for Michael Bublé while our T20 Blast Pass (season ticket) is already sold out, five months earlier than in 2019. Another focus this season is ensuring our supporters who can’t attend every Sussex game can follow us digitally. As such we are busy improving the live streaming service on our website within the match day centre. Not only does this provide a live stream of the action it also boasts a broad range of up to date statistics for cricket aficionados. In addition, supporters will be able to access an interactive scorecard from previous matches meaning they’ll never miss a wicket or boundary again.

FIFTY YEARS AGO

OFF COLOUR SUSSEX 1970: BACK ROW (LEFT-RIGHT): PETER GRAVES, JOHN DENMAN, JOHN SPENCER, JOHN SNOW, RICHARD LANGRIDGE, TONY GREIG, TONY BUSS, MIKE BUSS, KEN SUTTLE, DON BATES. FRONT ROW: LES LENHAM, JIM PARKS, MIKE GRIFFITH, NAWAB OF PATAUDI, GEOFF GREENIDGE.

IN THE SUMMER OF 1970 BRITAIN FOUND ITSELF A NEW PRIME MINISTER, TED HEATH. HE FRONTED THE NEGOTIATIONS WHICH LED TO BRITAIN JOINING SOMETHING CALLED THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES (EC) IN 1973. IT WAS, SAID HIS BIOGRAPHER JOHN CAMPBELL, “HEATH’S FINEST HOUR.”

20 | 50 YEARS AGO

Heath’s premiership faced several difficulties, including a number of important strikes, galloping inflation and a wily foe in Harold Wilson; Jim Parks, the Sussex leader, also had his problems. Parks was a wonderful cricketer, like his father before him, Jim Parks senior. Perhaps he didn’t possess the greatness more readily bestowed upon Ted Dexter and John Snow. But he often made the game look easier – more enjoyable too. Shortly after the end of the 1970 season, in October, Parks would celebrate his 39th birthday. But the county was still heavily dependent on his smiling versatility. That year he was once again the captain and wicketkeeper. And once again he led the side’s County Championship batting averages, this time with 1,300 runs at 41.93. In 1970 he reached 1,000 runs in a season for the 17th time and scored his 50th century for the county. At one point that year Sussex led the Championship. The Buss service had never been so good. Younger brother Michael was the leading run-scorer, with 1,379, and Tony was the most prolific wicket-taker with 88, 40 ahead of


both Snow and Tony Greig. Geoff Greenidge, the West Indian opening batsman from Barbados who had become the club’s overseas player in 1968, when many people expected Barry Richards to get the job, had his best season to date, hitting half his side’s ten centuries that summer. But the county’s early season form dried up and they went through a long and miserable phase in which they lost six and drew eight matches and were even overpowered by a young touring team from Jamaica by an innings and 88 runs. Kent were the champions that year, while Sussex finished ninth with five wins in 24 matches. Yes, 24! The three-day Championship dominated the beginning, end and middle of the season half a century ago. The John Player Sunday League was in its second season, the Gillette Cup in its eighth. Sussex were still impressive in the latter competition and in 1970 reached the final for the fourth time, having won the trophy in the first two years, in 1963 and 1964, and finished runners-up in 1968. They were second again in 1970. This time they were beaten by Lancashire, by six wickets, thanks largely to an unbeaten innings of 70 from Harry Pilling. But they could not adapt their one-day skills to the shorter, 40-over Sunday League. They finished bottom of the table, just as they had in 1969. But in the Championship, especially between the middle of May and the middle of June, Sussex supporters nurtured hopes of better things. In this time they won four matches, all at Hove. They beat Nottinghamshire by 16 runs in an exciting finish. Then they beat Glamorgan by 109 runs, with Greig taking eight wickets in the match. Then they went to the top of the table by defeating Hampshire – put in on a green pitch by seven wickets, with Don Bates taking 5 for 76 in the second innings. Warwickshire were next at Hove, and they were beaten by seven wickets. Rohan Kanhai scored an unbeaten 162 in Warwickshire’s first innings of 277 but Parks topped that with an unbeaten 166 in Sussex’s reply of 352 for 8 declared to set up the victory. But Sussex had to wait more than two months for their fifth and final win, also at Hove, where

they beat Somerset by an innings and 51 runs. Greenidge and Mike Buss built the platform for this success with a stand worth 241, equalling the county’s record post-war opening partnership. Sussex did not lack for fast and fast-medium bowlers in 1970. Snow was probably the best fast bowler in the world at this time, building up to his heroics in the 1970-71 Ashes series. But his best bowling that summer usually came when he played for England against the Rest of the World side. Snow was well backed up by Tony Buss, Grieg, John Spencer and Bates. But, not for the first or last time, there was a lack of quality spin. The twirl came from the left-arm slows of Ken Suttle, aged 42, and occasional leg breaks from Greenidge, and that was not good enough when the pitches turned brown and dusty in mid-summer and Sussex went off-colour too.

COMMUNITY CRICKET

WHAT A YEAR!

COMMUNITY CRICKET IN SUSSEX ENJOYED A GROUND-BREAKING 2019. It was the first year for delivery of the single league structure, The 1st Central Sussex Cricket League. This saw 135 clubs, 340 teams and over 7,200 players take part. Our annual player survey has provided the data to enable us to ensure that the League provides the type of cricket that players want to play at the times they want to play. This saw 32 of the 34 divisions playing win-lose, limited-overs cricket with earlier start and finish times and enabling players to fit games around their other commitments. These changes have led to increased participation, reduced cancellation of fixtures and improved player satisfaction. We have also used this insight to identify a need for more midweek T20 cricket. As such, we launched the Sussex Slam for 2020 and partnered with local TV and Radio stations to promote the competition with the aim of getting people playing more and lapsed cricketers back 22 | COMMUNITY CRICKET

playing cricket. We have greatly improved the way we support clubs through our network of Territory Managers. These provide all affiliated clubs with a single point of contact for helping their club development. Through this support, we have distributed over £130,000 to clubs aligned to their development plans to improve experiences, facilities and aid maintenance for pitches. The popularity of the men’s game has been more than matched by continuing growth in the development of women’s cricket in Sussex. Last year saw the number of clubs in Sussex with women’s teams increase from 26 to 40. Our ground-breaking partnership with the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy at Falmer, which has become the home for Sussex’s women’s teams, saw the number of girls applying to join the Player Pathway treble in the last two years. The numbers of children participating in the ECB All Stars Cricket programme in Sussex has grown from 1,500 to 1,850 and helps kids to take their first step into cricket. We aim to grow this to over 2,200 next year and join the ECB in launching the Dynamos programme, aimed at 8-11-year olds to enable them to take the next step in their cricket development. Both initiatives are fed by the Chance to Shine schools programme which reached over 10,000 children across the county last year. Our team of coaches bring cricket into primary schools, provide a fantastic experience and transfer these kids into local clubs and participation opportunities all-year round. Our Wicketz programme in Crawley, delivered in partnership with The Lord’s Taverners, expanded from one to three centres and continues to play a crucial part in the provision of cricket in the town to drive wider social change. The Street Cricket programme, delivered in partnership with Chance to Shine, enabled us to bring cricket to inner city areas and provide

opportunities to play for kids who are not members of traditional clubs. We have seven sites around the county and every youngster who took part received a free membership to Sussex Cricket and the opportunity to attend a game at the 1st Central County Ground and play on the outfield during the interval. The provision of a range of disability cricket opportunities continues to be an important part of the work of the Foundation and Community Department and over 1,000 people played either Super 1’s or Table Cricket at ten different centres in Sussex. We were delighted for our visually impaired team who, inspired by the outstanding Dan Field, won the National T20 Cup while our D40 and Super Nines teams showed great passion competing in their respective competitions. Visits to cricket sessions in schools and clubs by our professional cricketers are an important part of creating a passion for the game in Sussex and we are very grateful to Jofra Archer, Will Beer, Danny Briggs, Ben Brown, Laurie Evans, Phil Salt, Harry Finch, Will Sheffield, Tymal Mills and Luke Wright for taking part in 2019. We would also like to thank all the volunteers who play such a critical role in running community cricket around Sussex. Two of our own received national recognition with Ian Guppy, from Aldwick CC, winning the national ‘Heartbeat of the Club’ OSCA for his work rebuilding the clubhouse which was lost to fire. Paul Hacker, from Eastbourne CC, won the outstanding contribution to coaching award for developing young players at the club. An amazing achievement by both.

STREET CRICKET WINNERS MEET JOFRA ARCHER AND DANNY BRIGGS

We have had another successful year of fundraising with over £230,000 raised for the Foundation through a variety of methods including the SCF Vice Presidents, who each make annual donations of at least £1,000 while raffles at Vitality Blast matches and of fundraising events held across the county raise vital funds. We have been the beneficiary of a substantial legacy which in the current year has enabled important work to be done at Blackstone and the Aldridge Academy at Falmer as well helping to implement our partnership with Sporting Memories to work with older people to address loneliness and dementia. Four Sporting memories programmes are now running each week in Bexhill, Hove, Polegate and Worthing with groups of up to 25 people. The Walking Cricket programme continues at eight centres across the county and towards the end of last year we ran the first multi-centre competition which was hugely enjoyed by all participants. Successful fundraising has enabled the Foundation to ensure the full delivery of our commitment to the upkeep and development of the outstanding Blackstone Academy grounds including the purchase of new equipment and sightscreens, the installation of a hybrid pitch and redecoration of the pavilion. This year will see us launch a new strategy for community cricket, building on the success of the past few seasons while continuing to grow the sport through our communities.

WOMEN’S AND GIRLS’ CRICKET

EXCITING ERA SUSSEX AND ENGLAND PLAYER DANNI WYATT (RIGHT) WALKS OUT TO OPEN THE BATTING WITH AMY JONES BEFORE LAST SUMMER’S INTERNATIONAL AGAINST AUSTRALIA

WE ARE ENTERING A HUGELY EXCITING ERA FOR WOMEN’S CRICKET AS IT MOVES CLOSER TO DOMESTIC PROFESSIONALISM, BUT IT IS ALSO A TIME FOR REFLECTION. Last year saw the final County Championship 50-overs competition. Sussex performed well with a top-three finish, including a huge win against Kent at Canterbury on the final day. Other highlights were a six-wicket haul against Warwickshire for Nancy Harman; a match-winning 47 off 71 balls by Danni Wyatt against Lancashire and a record for captain, Georgia Adams, who became only the fourth player to reach 100 caps for Sussex and the youngest to achieve this feat. Two wins by one wicket and another by three runs really tested the nerves of the squad, coaching staff and spectators. The T20 campaign provided some entertaining cricket and as our England players were on 24 | WOMEN’S AND GIRLS CRICKET

international duty it meant more chances for our talented youngsters. Debuts for pathway players Hollie Young and Freya Kemp demonstrated the continued importance of the Aldridge Foundation and Academy programme based at the Sir Rod Aldridge Cricket Centre in helping to nurture future stars. So where now? The sadness of losing the County Championship competition - which Sussex have proudly won six times - is replaced with excitement over the huge investment generated by The Hundred. We continue to compete as Sussex in the Vitality T20 competition in May and June and will then watch with anticipation as England take on India followed by The Hundred, when at least 10 Sussex players will be in action. The end of the season will see a new eight-team regional 50 overs competition. As a county we are determined to stay at the forefront of nurturing talent thanks to the potential increase in funding from the ECB. We must find a way to harness the large increase in girls and women participating in order to provide


GIRLS’ CRICKET Looking back at 2019 it was pleasing to see some solid performances throughout all the age groups with girls contributing in all three disciplines through the teams. In the ECB cup competitions, our under-15s finished runners-up in a strong group including Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and Essex. The under-17s had an outstanding year, making the national finals after losing only one group game. Unfortunately, they lost a thriller in the semi-final by two wickets in the last over and although the girls were disappointed it was still an outstanding performance by some very talented young players. This season promises to be an extremely exciting time for women’s and girls’ cricket with the investments from the ECB and the introduction of a new domestic structure which includes full time professional players for the first time. We have seen a significant increase in the number of girls coming through our own system. Two years ago under 100 girls attended our assessments, this year over 230 took part and over 160 are in our pathway programme which boasts ten full squads from under-10 to under-17s. We are also continuing with our stand-

a more competitive environment for players to develop their skills within the county. Our end goal is to have our own Sussex Premier League for women’s and girls’ clubs, attracting top players and developing the next generation of superstars. All Sussex supporters are welcome to our home ground at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy on May 25th when we take on local rivals Kent and Surrey in our first T20 fixtures. There will also be plenty of opportunities to cheer on our Sussex players in both The Hundred and international matches at Hove, which is becoming

alone Girls’ Academy and Emerging Players programme which would not be possible without the support of the Aldridge Foundation which not only backs these programmes financially but also provides the fantastic facilities at the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy where the girls train. These programmes are already bearing fruit with four Sussex girls selected in the Regional Development Centre squads and two for the England Women’s Academy who are also training with the Southern Brave Hundred squad. With more and more girls playing cricket it is essential that we continue to evolve our own programmes to ensure we have the structure and resources to enable them to explore the game at the correct level, whether that be participation or performance. The strong relationship that the professional department and the Foundation are key to delivering this. These are exciting times and with Sussex’s history in producing top class players and our commitment and passion we can be at the forefront of this new era in the women’s and girls’ game.

OBITUARIES JOHN ROBERT TILLARD

NEIL BECK

who died at Pevensey on New Year’s Day, 2020 was a well-known and popular figure at Sussex cricket grounds where he sold secondhand cricket books and memorabilia while managing an impressive pipe. After starting at cricket matches at the Saffrons, Eastbourne with his father, Neil started trading regularly at the County Ground in the late 1990s as Castle Cricket Books and also displayed his impressive stock during matches at Arundel and Horsham. Neil’s career had been with the libraries’ department for East Sussex County Council and his love and knowledge of books was always evident. He was also enthusiastic about Sussex cricket history and has bequeathed some of his collection to the Sussex Cricket Museum. At one time he was the publications officer for the Association of Cricket Statisticians & Historians. He will be much missed for his wisdom and dry humour. A memorial service was held at St Nicolas Church, Pevensey on 24 January 2020. 26 | OBITUARIES

was 95 when he died at Chailey on 16 December 2019. He played in just one first-class match when, as an undergraduate at Oxford, he represented Sussex against the University in the Parks in 1949. He had though played for Sussex in wartime matches, notably as an 18-year-old, against an RAF XI at Hove in 1942. Two years later he played in a Sussex team at Haywards Heath with John and James Langridge and Jim Parks senior against the Forty Club where he caught former England all-rounder Nigel Haig. In three matches for Sussex II in 1948 and 1949 his highest score was 56 v Essex II at Lindfield. Rob Tillard’s prep school was West Downs before he went to Winchester where he played in the cricket XI with Hubert Doggart, Philip Whitcombe (Middlesex) and Brian Trubshaw, the future Concorde pilot. In 1942, Tillard topped the Winchester batting averages with 272 runs (av. 34.00). He joined the army from school and served in the King’s Royal Rifles. He was shot in the leg while leading a platoon near the Rhine and mentioned in despatches in 1946. At Trinity College, Oxford he gained soccer blues in 1947-48 and 1948-49 and played in the early matches of Pegasus FC. Returning to the army after university until 1956, he later worked for Clarks Shoes and the Grosvenor estate before becoming secretary of the Ski Club of Great Britain where he met his wife. They set up their successful Jobs in the Alps business before selling it in 1996. Rob Tillard was born at Kensington on 26 May 1924 and was related to Sussex gentry, notably the Campions of Danny. He played cricket for the Arabs and cricket and football for Chailey and in quite recent years attended the former players’ lunches at the 1st Central County Ground. In January 2020 a memorial service was held for him at Chailey Church which had been the subject of his recent unsuccessful attempt to prevent the removal of the pews.


FRANK KING

was a familiar figure at the County Ground for many years, sometimes walking around the ground collecting for beneficiaries with his faithful dog, Sophie. Frank was president of Horsham FC and is credited with saving that club from extinction in the early 1980s with a ‘show of selfless dedication and personal sacrifice.’ A Horsham man through and through, Frank was a fresh-faced teenager when he started selling programmes at the Queen Street ground in 1945. Frank died in May 2019, aged 87. Chris Adams represented Sussex Cricket at the memorial service held at St Mary’s parish church, Horsham in June 2019.

PETER JOHN WALES

died in Woodbine Manor Care Home, Bognor Regis on 3 October 2018, aged 89. Educated at Hove Grammar School, his only first-class match was as a 22-year-old amateur for Sussex against Hampshire at Worthing in 1951 when he opened the batting with John Langridge. He scored 29 and 9 not out in a ten-wickets victory and with a match return of 5 for 13 it is perhaps surprising that he did not play again for the county. That season of 1951 was a prolific one for Wales. For Brighton & Hove CC he scored 654 runs at an average of 109.00. The following year he scored 659 runs (av. 82.37) with a top score of 162 not out. He had made his Sussex II debut in 1948, aged 19, and the following year took 5 for 30 v Kent II at Rye and scored 60 v Surrey II at the Oval. His representative matches for Club Cricket Conference included one at Luton against the 1954 Pakistan touring side. Peter Wales, who was born at Hove on 30 October 1928, shared his cricketing reminiscences at a meeting at the County Ground a few years ago.

HUGH THOMAS

from Hurstpierpoint, who died in February 2019, aged 88, was elected a vice-president of Sussex Cricket in 2016. He was heavily involved in the administration of cricket across the county for nearly 50 years with Horsham CC, Brighton Brunswick CC, Sussex Association of Cricket Officials and the Sussex Cricket Board. He was president of Horsham Cricket Club and Horsham Hockey Club.

SUSSEX CRICKET SOCIETY

A BUSY YEAR DEVON MALCOLM WAS ONE OF THE SOCIETY’S GUESTS LAST YEAR

28 | SUSSEX CRICKET SOCIETY


AN EXCITING YEAR FOR THE SOCIETY HAS SEEN NEW SPEAKERS ENTERTAINING OUR MEMBERS AND A CHANGED COMMITTEE DEVELOPING NEW IDEAS. SEE OUR WEBSITE SUSSEXCRICKETSOCIETY.ORG AND OUR FACEBOOK PAGES FOR MORE INFORMATION. Many of the speakers we attract for our meetings are former County Championship players, but occasionally a person representing an important supporting service to the game visits us. Such was Hayley Green who gave a fascinating insight into the work done by ECB in fighting corruption in the game. A great way to start the year. In February Rob Andrew, amongst other topics, gave early information on the ground developments planned by Sussex Cricket. In March umpire John Holder, continuing the supporting theme, gave an audience of 70 members a constant stream of stories illustrating his continuing enthusiasm for the game from his early days in Barbados - Sussex Cricket seems to be developing a special relationship with the island - to his playing and umpiring days in the cooler climate of England. After the summer break the great England wicketkeeper Bob Taylor provided an amusing account of his cricketing career and showed us his fingers, none of which were ever broken but which demonstrated the toll from years of keeping with the thinly padded gloves he favoured in order to feel the ball when catching it. Mike Vockins, the highly experienced cricket administrator, turned out to be a delightful man who, amongst other matters, spoke movingly about Ian Botham and the tremendous work he has done not only on the cricket field but also for his many charitable works. The Society’s great events are the two lunches, one in spring and one in autumn. These attract over 120 members and guests and last year the high spot was in November when Devon Malcolm was our guest. What a

charmer! He enjoyed telling us how he started his career in Sheffield when in a pre-season friendly he clean-bowled Geoffrey Boycott. It brought the house down. Two important events occurred during our annual garden party held in the Boundary Rooms during the Middlesex match. At the lunch interval Sussex coaches and a dozen or so youngsters from the coaching pathway demonstrated a coaching aid called a “Lobster” which had been donated to Sussex for use in schools for catching practice. Later in the afternoon some 50 people witnessed chairman Andrew Long unveil a plaque in memory of Alan Oakman who was instrumental in founding the Society in 1965. The memorial can be found at the rear of the main scoreboard. The Society has also joined up with the Sussex Cricket Museum and Educational Trust to host the launch of ‘Batting for the Poor’ an authorised biography of the great former Sussex captain David Sheppard. The book is written by Andrew Bradstock who also concentrated on Sheppard’s work as a clergyman in inner London and as Bishop of Liverpool. Our AGM in October elected a number of new officers and members, so expect great things in the near future. In the meantime, Society members salute Kathy Bennett, Andrew Long and Roger Oakes for their invaluable work over many years.

THE BIG QUESTION

CAN SUSSEX END LONG WAIT? TRAVIS HEAD SHOULD BRING SOLIDITY TO SUSSEX’S TOPORDER BATTING THIS SEASON

THIS WILL BE THE FIFTH SEASON IN A ROW THAT SUSSEX WILL START THE SPECSAVERS COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON IN THE SECOND TIER OF ENGLISH CRICKET. THE BIG QUESTION IS, AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER WILL THEY BE PART OF THE ELITE ONCE AGAIN AND BACK IN DIVISION ONE? 30 | ADRIAN HARMS


At least this season all the counties will be on a level playing field by playing each other twice, and there can be no argument that the two most deserving sides will be promoted. Who the main competitors for the two promotion slots are is a tough question, given that virtually no one predicted Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire would join Lancashire in going up last season. Relegated Nottinghamshire will be firm favourites for a prompt return while Middlesex, under new skipper Peter Handscomb, will be desperate to put the poor form of the last couple of seasons behind them. But discount at your peril Glamorgan, who have the prolific Marnus Labuschagne in their ranks, Durham, who were revitalised last season under Cameron Bancroft, and Derbyshire, who thumped Sussex in the penultimate game of the season. Worcestershire, with their steady production line of good young players supplemented to augment some experienced campaigners, are sure to be there or thereabouts, and Leicestershire are capable of the occasional upset - remember they beat Sussex in the opening game of last season. In summary, it bodes well for an exciting season, but Sussex will need to perform at a considerably more consistent level than they have in the last two seasons if they are to be in with a shout of promotion. I believe the batting has been a problem for several seasons, although replacing the likes of Ed Joyce, Mike Yardy and Chris Nash,was never going to be easy. Younger players have been given opportunities and their time will hopefully come again, but the patience and loyalty shown by Jason Gillespie began to wear thin in the middle of last summer. Crushing defeats at Hove by Durham and Northamptonshire and a thumping at Old Trafford was followed by an insipid performance in the penultimate game at Derby. That was the final straw. Change was needed. Travis Head looks a huge step in the right direction. He is a Test player which says much given the quality of the Australian batting line-up at present and the left-hander is available for the whole season – another big tick. With so much

Championship cricket in April and May he will need all his undoubted ability to adapt quickly to English conditions, but Head should bring much needed solidity to the top order. Whether Ravi Bopara will play four-day cricket remains to be seen, but if he does the batting lineup would have genuine competition for places, a luxury not afforded in recent seasons. The bowling attack was far too reliant on Ollie Robinson last season and at times he carried the attack single-handedly. Taking 137 Championship wickets in the last two seasons was always going to attract the attention of the England selectors, and Geoff Arnold became a frequent visitor to monitor Robinson’s progress in 2019. His selection for the Lions’ tour to Australia earlier this year was richly deserved. With James Anderson and Stuart Broad maybe in the twilight of their magnificent careers it may not be too long before Robinson gets his chance at Test level as a seam bowler who relishes English conditions. With Jofra Archer recovering from an elbow injury and now centrally contracted and Chris Jordan playing in the Indian Premier League until the end of May the bowling resources had looked a little thin, but the signings of Mitch Claydon and Stuart Meaker have redressed the balance. There were a few eyebrows raised at the acquisition of 37-year-old Claydon, but with seven Championship games on potentially helpful wickets in the first two months of the season he could prove an inspired capture. Meaker has found himself down the pecking order at Surrey and feels he has something to prove. Provided he can steer clear of the injuries that disrupted his last couple of years at the Oval, his pace and bounce could be a match-winning combination. The Royal London One Day Cup is going to be something of an unknown. It’s potentially the county which has been least affected by call-ups for The Hundred who will lift the title, and the fact the final isn’t being played at Lord’s must be a huge disappointment to players and supporters alike. Sussex have lost ten players to the new competition and they will do well to improve on last season when they won four games and should probably have reached the knockout stages. ADRIAN HARMS | 31


The Vitality Blast will again offer perhaps the best chance of success. Sussex dominated the South Group last season, but in this format one good individual performance can undo all the hard work in the group stages. That was certainly the case with Worcestershire’s Mooen Ali’s fabulous century at Hove in the quarter-final. However, a side consisting of Luke Wright, Rashid Khan, Phil Salt, Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills and Travis Head to name but a few, and on occasions Jofra Archer, will again take some beating. The minimum expectation will be that Sussex reach the quarter-final, after that it becomes a case of who performs best on the night. Once again BBC Sussex will be broadcasting every ball of every game in 2020. I never forget

it’s a huge privilege to commentate on first-class cricket and always try to be balanced, fair and objective and, with plenty of emails and tweets from listeners, I hope you enjoy the coverage. Few counties allow media the access that we are afforded at Sussex. The players’ willingness to join the commentary team and bring their professional insight is invaluable and adds a whole new dimension to the broadcast for which I’m very grateful. It doesn’t mean, though, that I will shirk the difficult questions if Sussex lose or play poorly. It’s a balancing act which I’m looking forward to continuing this season.

SMASHING BOUNDARIES Sussex Cricket is a fine example of the important role that a club can play both within their local community and creating a culture of inclusion. With continued ambitious plans, 1ST CENTRAL is proud to enter its fifth year of supporting the club, as well as a number of its community initiatives, including: Sussex’s Cricket League (the largest in the world), Sussex Cricket Foundation Roadshows, Discoverability Day, as well as many other initiatives that the club has set up to encourage participation across Sussex. 2020 presents a new challenge of how to top what was such a standout year for English cricket, and we’re excited to be part of Sussex’s continued journey, seeing how they can utilise their diverse teams to gain much-deserved silverware. We look forward to a thrilling year of cricket at The 1ST CENTRAL County Ground and wish all of Sussex’s teams the very best of luck for the coming season.

WITH THREE TEAMS GOING UP. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE YEAR SUSSEX CLAIMED THEIR PLACE BACK IN DIVISION ONE OF THE SPECSAVERS COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP. INSTEAD THEY DROPPED FROM THIRD TO SIXTH AND, AS HE ASSESSED A HUGELY DISAPPOINTING SUMMER, CAPTAIN BEN BROWN DIDN’T HOLD BACK.

36 | CHAMPIONSHIP REVIEW

“Everyone has to improve,” said Brown. “We have players who have shown promise but everyone, especially in the top order, has to find a way of scoring more consistently and defending the ball better when it is moving around. We have guys who have all the strokes, but the defensive aspects of batting also requires hard work and dedication.” Brown and head coach Jason Gillespie could not be accused of trying to find a winning formula. When Sussex won their first title in 2003 they used just 15 players. A different era? Well, not really. Twenty20 had started and there were two one-day competitions back then. In 2019 24 players represented the county in red-ball cricket, four of them signed on loan. The main problem once again was Sussex’s flaky top order. Only the captain himself and Stiaan van Zyl passed 800 Championship runs but Brown too often had to lead a rebuilding job, often with the reliable David Wiese. True, batting


against a ball 40 or 50 overs old is easier, but if Sussex are to challenge for promotion they have to address the problem of an inconsistent top five. The arrival of Australian Test left-hander Travis Head is a step in the right direction. Of their batsmen who played more than three Championship games, only four appeared in the top 70 in the final averages. The biggest surprise was how Luke Wells and Harry Finch struggled. Wells only managed 527 runs, his worst return since becoming a regular in the side, while Finch finished with an average of 12.38. Neither made a hundred. Phil Salt found opening harder work than it was in 2018, although he was hampered by a broken finger during the middle of the season. He still made two hundreds while one of the few batsmen to emerge with much credit was Delray Rawlins, who scored his maiden century in a losing cause at Old Trafford and averaged 36.44 in six appearances. All sorts of permutations were tried. Will Beer became a regular in the top three and nearly made his maiden Championship hundred after a long vigil on a typically slow pitch at Arundel before falling three runs short. Michael Burgess was allowed to join Warwickshire after playing just one Championship game. Jofra Archer’s elevation to international stardom left a big hole in the bowling attack. Ollie Robinson once again did an outstanding job, his 63 wickets were more than twice as many as anyone else and included 8 for 34 against Middlesex. The wholehearted Wiese must have been a dream to captain and it was no surprise when he was awarded a new contract. Supremely fit and always willing to bowl the hard yards, the South African picked up 30 wickets but was the only seam bowler, apart from Robinson, to take a five-for. Chris Jordan blew hot and cold, although he did score a fine hundred at Northampton, and Mir Hamza took 21 wickets in six early-season games but left-armer George Garton had another injuryblighted summer. If he can stay fit in 2020 Garton is still young enough to make a lasting impact, having also made great strides with his batting. It wasn’t a great summer for spinners anywhere, and Sussex’s slow bowlers took 33 between

them at 47. Danny Briggs only played four games while the county had limited success in the loan market, although Yorkshire’s Jared Warner bowled quickly in his two appearances before picking up an injury. Perhaps Sussex supporters had an inkling of what to expect when they lost their first game heavily to Leicestershire at Hove, the visitors’ only win of the season. They bounced back by beating Durham and were unbeaten in the next five games. Robinson picked up ten wickets at Lord’s – a ground he always bowls well at – in the innings win over Middlesex when Sussex scored nearly 500 with van Zyl and Brown making hundreds. It put them second in the table but proved to be the highpoint of the season. Things unravelled at the beginning of July with successive defeats at Hove. Against Durham, no one in the top six made more than van Zyl’s 48 in the second innings after two Durham batsman – Cameron Bancroft and Ned Eckersley – scored grafting hundreds. Sussex lost that game by 196 runs but worse was to come against Northamptonshire where they made 106 and 105 and succumbed to a huge defeat by nearly 400 runs. Robinson, who was also awarded his county cap, showed his liking for Middlesex batsmen again at Hove when he finished with 14 for 135 – the best match figures by a Sussex bowler since 1964 – in the morale-boosting win that left Sussex 11 points off third place. That was still the margin after Gloucestershire were defeated at Bristol in early September. Next up was a trip to Derby, where the home county were preparing for their first appearances at T20 Finals Day but they were far from distracted. Despite a first innings lead of 97 Sussex ended up having to chase 344 after some abysmal bowling and came up well short. Rain ruined what, when the fixtures came out, looked a potential promotion decider in the final game against Worcestershire. Both teams will once again be considered promotion contenders in 2020 but Sussex have a lot to do if that is to become a reality.

VITALITY BLAST

REVIEW 2019

58 | VITALITY BLAST


VITALITY BLAST | 59


MOEEN ON A MISSION ALEX CAREY SHOWED HIS UNDOUBTED TALENT WITH THE GLOVES AND THE BAT.

SUSSEX ACHIEVED THEIR MINIMUM OBJECTIVE IN THE VITALITY BLAST BY REACHING THE QUARTER FINALS. THAT THEY DIDN’T MAKE IT TO FINALS DAY FOR THE SECOND SUCCESSIVE YEAR WAS EFFECTIVELY DOWN TO ONE MAN – WORCESTERSHIRE CAPTAIN MOEEN ALI.

60 | T20 VITALITY BLAST REVIEW

By winning eight of their first ten games, the Sharks had sealed a home quarter-final with a bit to spare but there was no advantage to playing at the 1st Central County Ground on the night when they ran into an inspired Moeen. His 60-ball 126 included 11 sixes, eight fours and was an awesome display of 360-degree hitting, but Sussex had their chances. Alex Carey did little wrong during his stint as overseas player but dropping Moeen when he’d made just five was to prove very costly. By the time he was put down again, this time by the normally reliable David Wiese on 78, the game was getting away from Sussex. All everyone in another full-house crowd could do after that was admire the subtle brilliance of one player. Sussex’s 184 for 6 looked more than competitive, but by the time Ali stroked the winning runs Worcestershire had eight wickets and 14 balls to spare. To a man, every Sussex player shook Moeen’s hand as he walked off.


They all recognised his brilliance. It was a shame it had to end that way. With their Championship campaign faltering, Sussex supporters needed cheering up and the Sharks provided much succour. Whether any bowling attack in the world could have stopped Moeen in full flow is open to debate, but by the time the quarter-final came around both Rashid Khan and Tymal Mills were out of the team. Rashid was only ever going to play in nine games and Mills missed eight matches through injury. Would Moeen have been able to collar a world-class leg spinner like Rashid? We’ll never know but skipper Luke Wright would loved to have called upon his Afghanistan talisman. At least he will be back at what he regards as his second home in 2020. Actually, Sussex look even stronger this year. Ravi Bopara almost single-handedly frustrated Worcestershire’s hopes of back-to-back T20 titles with his unbeaten 36 which guided Essex to victory in the final at Edgbaston. Bopara excelled after moving down the order and Sussex appeared to have pulled off a major coup by bringing him south. He has played for 13 different T20 teams and was once Wright’s team-mate in the England team. The Australian left-hander Travis Head is well known to Jason Gillespie as one of his big names with Adelaide Strikers. Head has a not-to-besniffed-at T20 strike rate of 137.12 and if Wright and Phil Salt can provide more turbo-charged starts this year Head looks ideally suited to maintaining their momentum deep into the innings and Bopara to finishing things off. The loss of Reece Topley, who was leading wicket-taker with 17 last year, is a blow but Stuart Meaker will be desperate to get more white-ball opportunities having moved in the opposite direction from Surrey. Mills and Jordan will be there again, and Sussex fans may get the bonus of an occasional appearance by Jofra Archer too, international commitments permitting. The sight of England’s new superstar patiently scribbling autographs for a long line of star-struck youngsters in one of Sussex’s popular postmatch signings sessions was one of the enduring memories of last year’s Blast. So was the sight of the 1st Central County Ground full to the rafters for seven of the eight

matches and they saw some sparkling cricket. Topley took three wickets in four balls to scupper Hampshire’s hopes in the Hove opener; a thriller with Surrey ended in a tie after Gareth Batty and Imran Tahir scrambled two off the final ball; Phil Salt and Laurie Evans indulged in a personal duel to see who could clear the Cow Corner hospitality boxes the most as Kent’s unbeaten run ended before Wright and Salt set a new county record with 130 as they cruised to victory against Glamorgan. Wright then became the leading run scorer in domestic T20 during a sixth successive win against Middlesex. Sussex’s momentum did stall towards the end with successive defeats to Essex and Gloucestershire at home but they won four games away from home and might have done even better had matches at the Ageas Bowl and Canterbury not been washed out. Wright led the team with his customary exuberance and was one of three batsmen, along with Salt and Evans, to score more than 350 runs. He will go into 2020 having played 365 matches in the format which is a phenomenal achievement and although he will be 35 when it starts his powers show no sign of waning. Interestingly, he made his first move into coaching during the winter when he helped out Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash. Ollie Robinson made the most of Archer’s absence to take 11 wickets and although batsmen played Rashid Khan with a bit more certainty, both he, Will Beer and Danny Briggs could be relied on to do an effective job in the middle of the innings. That should continue this year while it will be interesting to see how Delray Rawlins develops after some eye-catching cameos with bat and ball last year. Similarly, George Garton may have more of a role after Rajasthan Royals took note of his performances in T10 cricket during the winter and invited him for an IPL try-out. With only Carey missing from last year and some notable additions to the squad, Wright’s toughest job this year could be keeping everyone happy.

ROYAL LONDON ONE DAY CUP

REVIEW 2019

80 | ROYAL LONDON ONE DAY CUP


ROYAL LONDON ONE DAY CUP | 81


SHARKS COME UP SHORT GEORGE GARTON MADE USEFUL LOWER-ORDER RUNS AND ALSO TOOK NINE WICKETS.

FOUR WINS WAS AN IMPROVEMENT ON 2018 AND THREE MORE THAN SUSSEX MANAGED IN FOUR YEARS BETWEEN 2013-16, SO IT CAN BE SAID THAT THE SHARKS’ PERFORMANCES IN 50 OVERS CRICKET ARE GETTING BETTER.

82 | ROYAL LONDON ONE DAY CUP REVIEW

But despite winning three games away from home, and twice breaking their record for the highest individual score in List A cricket, Sussex once again failed to get out of the South Group. A familiar outcome then and one they will do well to improve in 2020. The tournament has been shunted back to August from its April-May scheduling last year, but it coincides with The Hundred. The inaugural draft saw ten Sussex players selected and while they will be available for the knockout stages and final, which is at Trent Bridge on September 19, it is unlikely they can take part in the group stages. That seems very unfair, given that some counties have very few participants in The Hundred and in the case of Leicestershire, none at all. And although Royal London have committed to sponsoring the competition, only the knockout


stages will be televised as The Hundred takes centre stage. With Hove hosting two women’s matches in The Hundred, the county has taken two Royal London games to outgrounds. Eastbourne will host Kent on July 24 and the county return to Horsham for the first time since 2015 when they face Gloucestershire on August 9. Regardless of who is playing, good crowds at both venues are guaranteed. And another bonus (although the players might not see it that way given the travelling involved) is that the group stages are not regionalised this year – a welcome change for Sussex supporters fed up with seeing the same familiar teams and players in the white-ball formats every year. Although the ECB back-tracked on its initial plan to downgrade the Royal London One Day Cup to a ‘development’ tournament, there will no doubt be opportunities for young players and others who haven’t had a great deal of 50 overs cricket in recent years. Although they failed to make the knockout stages in 2019, Sussex played a much more aggressive brand of cricket, especially with the bat. Fears that early-season conditions would suit bowlers proved unfounded, with Sussex involved in – and winning - some high-scoring thrillers. It started on April 21 – Good Friday – when warm weather drew a crowd of 4,500 to Hove and they saw Sussex beat old rivals Surrey with 11 balls to spare thanks to David Wiese’s 93 not out, a personal best in List A cricket which he was to beat spectacularly less than a fortnight later. The confidence they gained from beating a strong Surrey team was taken into the next match at Beckenham where Sussex made light work of a target of 299 on a true pitch, winning with ten overs to spare thanks to Phil Salt’s blistering 137 off 106 balls, which included 13 fours and ten sixes. An under-par bowling effort, and rain, enabled Somerset to win match 3 at Hove under the lights but Sussex bounced back at Lord’s, where Wright eclipsed Chris Adams’ county record of 163, which had stood for 20 years, with 166 off 142 balls against Middlesex. He hit ten fours and six sixes in a wonderfully controlled display on a tricky pitch. Ben Brown made 55 but the next highest score

was 13 and a better bowling performance meant the hosts were never really in the hunt. Three days later at Chelmsford, Sussex won a thriller off the last ball thanks to the heroics of their lower order. After Laurie Evans and Will Beer had put on 121 for the seventh wicket, as Sussex chased 284 having been 94 for 6, last pair Danny Briggs and Mir Hamza saw them home with 27 for the last wicket at a run a ball. The players belted out the theme from ‘The Great Escape’ afterwards and looked set for a reprise at the Ageas Bowl a couple of days later after an astonishing innings by Wiese. Both Aiden Markram and Tom Alsop were dropped on their way to making hundreds in Hampshire’s 356 and when Sussex slumped to 103 for 5 all seemed lost. But Wiese blitzed 171 off 126 balls, breaking Wright’s record which has only stood for five days. However, Mason Crane dismissed him and Ben Brown, with whom Wiese had added 232, in the same over, and the Sharks lost by ten runs. Wiese and Brown’s sixth-wicket stand was Sussex’s third-highest partnership in List A cricket. With two home games to finish Sussex were still in a good position but although a crowd of 3,000 – including 600 corporate guests – enjoyed another great day at the Saffrons, Sussex’s performance was under-par. Benny Howell took a hat-trick as their last five wickets fell for 14 in a feeble response to Gloucestershire’s 335, in which Jack Taylor made 68 off 26 balls as 135 were plundered off the last ten overs. It left Sussex needing to beat Glamorgan and hope other results fell their way, but the visitors eased past a target of 348 with eight balls to spare, a new record chase for the Welsh county. Laurie Evans had earlier made 110 off 87 balls – his second List A hundred – but it wasn’t enough. Wright (409), Wiese (395) and Evans (335) were their leading scorers and Mir Hamza, with 18 wickets, did a fine job with the ball but another campaign ended in disappointment.

PAUL PARKER – SCORER OF 37 FIRST-CLASS HUNDREDS FOR SUSSEX

ROYAL LONDON ONE-DAY CUP NOTES | 95


SECOND XI REVIEW

THE JOURNEY

JOFRA ARCHER’S COMMITMENT WHEN HE DROPPED INTO THE SECOND XI TO PROVE HIS FITNESS BEFORE THE ASHES WAS A GREAT EXAMPLE TO OUR YOUNGER PLAYERS.

THE SECOND XI ENVIRONMENT SHOULD REALLY EXIST IN MY OPINION AS A STOPOVER FOR THE JOURNEY OF ANY PROFESSIONAL CRICKETER.

96 | 2ND XI REVIEW

There are really only two exits: into the first team or sadly out of professional cricket. For younger players it is a place for learning and delivering performances under pressure. Young players have the luxury of a little more time in the side so we must use it as best we can for our most talented youngsters and expose them in a safe way. There is an expectation for first team cricketers to come into the environment and deliver performances in whatever format they are preparing for but they are also role models for those younger players. Many did in 2019. Jofra Archer’s demolition against Gloucestershire, Ben Brown’s hundred against Hampshire, Luke


Wright’s T20 hundred, Danny Briggs and Will Beer both taking five- fors and Will Beer and Tom Haines scoring one-day hundreds. It is a clear message that it is hundreds and five-fors that are the currency and the right way out of the Second XI. While their performances on the pitch will obviously get noticed it is often their “off the ball” behaviour that is so powerful. It was great to see the likes of Harry Finch score a double century in what was going to be the most amazing chase against Yorkshire only for bad light to cut short our effort. Equally satisfying was to see the support Harry got from Ali Orr and Tom Clark. It was exciting to see Elliot Hooper force his way into the first team and the emergence of Henry Crocombe and Joe Sarro with the ball. For me, young batters from the Academy making their mark and not looking out of place are the key in developing Sussex cricketers. Inevitably, at the end of any season, we lose players and on this note I would like to wish Abi Sakande all the best for the future. Abi could never be faulted for his effort and attitude to training. In the latter part of the season, while his performances would have been frustrating, I felt he was gaining a better understanding about his bowling. I hope with a fresh start this might provide the right stimulus for him to realise his potential. What can we look forward to in 2020? Very simple: opportunity, opportunity and opportunity. We have some very good young Sussex players who are currently in or have recently been in our Academy programme. It would be my hope that we can give as much opportunity to play as we can to these players. There is a lot of evidence that some of England’s best cricketers got opportunities early in first-class cricket and I can’t see why this would not be the same for young Academy players to play Second XI and, of course, in the Royal London One-Day

Cup, when a lot of our first-team players will be taking part in The Hundred. Many youngsters played in 2019 and did well and I hope that this now becomes a trend. The key to this will be the communication between the professional game and Richard Halsall. This in no way means that it will be a simple right of passage for these players. In fact we are very careful to guard against entitlement. Performances will always be the currency but in addition decisions will be made based on the attitude, work ethic and character of these players as the culture of the team will always be at the heart of our decisions. The likes of Jack Carson, Oli Carter, Tom Clark, Ali Orr and Scott Lenham all scored heavily in Academy games - some stringing two or three hundreds together - before they got their opportunity in the second team. The ability to bat long periods of time is crucial. Bowlers will be judged on how they hold line and length. Bowling wise, pace bowlers to bowl fast and move the ball laterally, spin bowlers to turn it and all will be expected to be effective in all forms of cricket. There will of course be a high expectation on the quality of a player’s fielding commitment. I hope this will remain the same and that the future is bright for Sussex cricket.
