2017 was a successful season for the club both on and off the pitch. The 1st XI finished mid table in the ESCL top division, our 2nd XI were unfortunately relegated from division 4. The 3rd and 4th XI both secured promotion from their respective leagues after really strong seasons, the 3rd XI securing their third straight promotion. The 1st XI won the Martlet Shield for the first time in the three years since the competition started with a win over Hellingly. Our juniors excelled with the U9’s, U10’s and U16’s winning their respective East Sussex Leagues in great style. Our U12’s won the Sussex Junior Cricket Festival Plate, with a comprehensive victory over Lindfield in the final to cap a remarkable season for all our juniors.
At Hailsham we are extremely keen on getting juniors playing cricket and we have over 120 boys and girls who train and play matches for the Club between the ages of 4-19. Hailsham Cricket Club has been awarded the Clubmark status under the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Their development is supported by 19 ECB qualified coaches, this is as many if not more than any other team locally
2017 was also extremely productive for the club off the
pitch with the 3rd and 4th XI having use of a brand new cricket pavilion at the
picturesque Roebuck Park. Roebuck Park will be used for more junior and senior
games in the coming years to allow all members the chance to play at this
stunning cricket venue. Work will soon start on the refurbishment of the
Western Road pavilion this winter, this will increase the size and usage of the
pavilion for the club and the local community.
