|Firle Cricket Club|
|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 we first won in 1906, then taking the title 17 times since 1952.
On joining the East Sussex Cricket League, the First XI gained promotion in four seasons, being most recently promoted to Division 2 in 2016, whilst the Seconds 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 has one senior Saturday XI, which will now be playing in the newly created Sussex League Division 6 East in the 2018 season. We also have a Mid-Week XI playing 20-20 evening matches throughout the season and an occasional Sunday XI.
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.
|Ton for Trott||
Neil Trott scored Firle's first hundred of the season and his third for the club at Glynde this weekend, with 102, bringing up his ton with a six into the river. Ned Wyndham took 5 for 42 as Glynde chased down Firle's 204 for 8,
reaching their target with 6 overs to spare. 15 points from the match still leaves Firle in 4th place in Division 6 East, with a record of won 2, lost 2 and drawn 2.
