|Firle Cricket Club is one of the oldest cricket clubs in the world, having been formed in 1758.
Firle Cricket Club now plays in the Sussex Cricket League, joining in 2007, but it originally started its competitive life in the Cuckmere Valley League, which the club first won in 1924 before taking
the title another 18 times, including the glory years of 1988 to 1999 where Firle were champions 9 times in 12 seasons.
On joining the East Sussex Cricket League, the First XI gained promotion in its first four seasons, eventually reaching Division 2 in 2016, whilst the Seconds XI won Division 12 in 2011,
Division 11 in 2012 and Division 10 in 2013 before taking a break from league cricket in 2015.
The club now has one Saturday XI, which will be playing in the Sussex League Division 7 East in the 2023 season. We have a Sunday XI playing every week, plus we have a
Mid-Week XI playing T20 evening matches throughout the season. We also have a team in the Sussex Slam competition, the Spice Firles.
Our ground, sited within the historic Firle Place country estate, is said to be one of the most picturesque grounds in England, with a rustic pavilion, huge oak trees and an excellent
country pub nearby. We are located just off the A27 approximately 4 miles east of Lewes.
