Sussex Cricket is the local governing body for cricket in the county, responsible for promoting the playing and watching of men’s and women’s cricket at all levels and all age groups.
As well as aiming to compete each season at as high a level as sustainably possible in the competitions that our men’s women’s, boys’ and girls’ teams take part in, Sussex Cricket is committed to promoting cricket as a means for the development of young people and adults, including those with disabilities.
Through our charitable and community social responsibility initiatives, we are continually looking to strengthen our bonds with communities throughout the county.
The running of Sussex Cricket is overseen by a board of directors elected by members and affiliated clubs, who in turn may co-opt and appoint co-opted directors and executive directors.
Below, you will find a list of Club Documents for your information. Paper copies can be requested in person at Reception or if you wish to get in touch, then please use the form at the foot of the page.
Sussex Cricket Limited Strategic Plan Update
Following our successful members forum a few weeks back I wanted to give you an update on several matters before our next forum on 20th September 2018.
A key area of work for me over the last 12 months has been to really understand the business of Sussex Cricket and work out a plan for the future with the Board.
We have spent a good deal of time consulting and understanding our key priorities and have produced an ‘interim’ strategic plan for this year and next which I am delighted to share with you. Please click the download button below.
As you will see from the plan there is a considerable amount of change going on in the cricket world and we are having to make decisions in this rather uncertain environment.
This is why we have decided to put together an ‘interim ‘ plan as we seek further clarity for the period 2020 to 2024. We expect to have this by late 2018 or early 2019 and we can then adjust our plan accordingly for this longer period. Once this is done we will share our new strategic plan for this period.
We can discuss any issues raised in this document at the next Forum.
In addition there are two other important areas we must put serious attention on over the coming months. The first relates to any ambitions we may have in terms of next steps for improvements to the ground. It is now some time since the improvements made courtesy of the Spen Cama legacy. We must not stand still in this area as the public’s demand for better quality facilities and service continue to grow. There are certain parts of our ground which are now struggling to cope with matchday and non-matchday demand. We are now looking into this seriously and as has been mentioned over numerous years the possibilities created by our ownership of the south west corner must now be explored.
Secondly, we must constantly ensure our governance processes are fit for purpose. Again the landscape is fast moving and since the creation of the new constitution in 2015 on the setting up of Sussex Cricket Ltd there has been a new Sport England Governance Code introduced to ensure sports bodies are appropriately constituted. We are currently looking into areas where we may wish to improve and the impact these potential amendments may have. Organisations such as ours should always be reviewing and amending our Rules and Regulations to ensure they fit with best practice. We can discuss any thoughts you may have at the next Forum also.
And finally, as you may recall at the AGM we asked our President John Abbott to review the Board election process for 2018. John has now reported back to the Board with his recommendations which will be implemented going forward. The key recommendation was the setting up of a Nominations and Elections Committee to oversee Board appointments and the election process.
As always it has been a very busy summer with quite a few significant changes especially to our two cricket departments with the appointments of Jason Gillespie as Head Coach and Chris Coleman as Head of Community Cricket. We are set for an exciting end to the season and I look forward to seeing you at our remaining T20 Blast matches or our County Championship matches.
Once again thank you for your continued support.
