2020 season is coming...

League fixtures are up for the 1s and 2s.


Ground Work Parties

Work party dates for 2020, 2pm-5pm:

Sunday 5th April

Sunday 13th April

Sunday 31st May

Sunday 14th June

Sunday 12th July

Sunday 23rd August

Saturday 26th September - putting the ground to bed.

These have been strategically placed through-out the season to try and spread the load of the work needed to keep our beautiful ground beautiful.

The expectation is, if you are an adult playing member of the club, you need to attend 1, just 1, of these work party dates. If everyone does one then the work will be spread across the club quite nicely. We’re aiming to have 5/6 people at each one. Jobs will include

- Grass cutting

- General mainteinance (fences, nets etc)

- Wicket prep

- Strimming

- Pavilion and building maintenance

It is first come first serve so get booked on. We’ll aim to be at the ground 2-5 on the day (they are all Sundays) and If the weather doesn’t play ball we’ll rearrange closer to the time. Get signed up sooner rather than later to get the date you want.

This is very much a case of ‘many hands make light work’. We are growing and have more fixtures this year, so the need is greater than ever. Be apart of keeping our ground stunning!

You are of course welcome to do more than 1 of the dates. If you are willing, why not consider helping regularly at the ground, specifically wicket prep and grass cutting. We have a WhatsApp group that I will gladly add you to and just 2-3 hours a month would make a world of difference.

Looking forward to making this the best year ever!

Derek Garner

Chairman and Ground Manager.

Welcome

Bosham (pronounced Boz’am) is a small coastal village located in the south-west corner of Sussex. Cricket has been played in the village for over 100 years and is an important part of village life.

The Club is open to all residents and friends of Bosham and its neighbouring villages. Our ground has wonderful views over Bosham Channel and the South Downs and is accessed via a gravel track from the 5 bar gate at Delling Close (off Delling Lane) in Bosham. Limited parking is available at the end of the gravel track but cycling and walking are encouraged.

There are 2 full size all weather cricket nets for use by all members.

The adult teams plays on Saturdays in the West Sussex Invitation League. Junior members of the Club play in the Sussex West Area and in the Sussex Junior Cricket Festival in August. We try to arrange games for all age groups depending on numbers.

All home games and outdoor practice sessions take place at the Delling Lane Ground.

Our junior members practice on Monday nights from 6-7pm. Parents are very welcome to attend and to help with the juniors.

Purpose and objectives of the Club

  • Attract without discrimination, adult and young people from our local community to participate in playing and non playing activities in the amateur sport of cricket.
  • To offer members improved facilities which will enable them to flourish and play cricket in a safe and friendly environment within the spirit of the game.
  • Ensure our cricket club is an integral part of our local community that contributes to all sections of village life.

Bosham Cricket Club Constitution (10 March 2009)

Bosham Cricket Club Code of Conduct.

The MCC Sprit of Cricket is upheld at all times.

The club is a place for all members of the community and guests. We behave in a way that makes everyone, from the small children to the oldest members of the community feel safe and welcome.

We will all have opinions about teammates, umpires and opponents but we never use derogatory or offence words.

As players and members we will all have views on club issues, we express them in the correct manor but always follow our Captain on the field and assist our chosen representatives off the field.

Don’t ask who will do something for the club, step up and do it.

As players, we place the team we are playing for and the club ahead of personal achievement; the only name on our shirts is Bosham Cricket Club.
