Lancing Rovers - Champions of the Cricketer Trophy  2019

Following a superb season last year – including a very memorable Rovers’ Week (five back-to-back fixtures at the school) and a record-breaking Cricketer Trophy campaign (in which we scored 470 in our 50 overs in the trophy final and Ryan Maskell knocked up 309!)  – and prior to the current circumstances developing, the Rovers were dusting off the cobwebs and gearing up for another action-packed season.

Whilst obviously completely dependent on the current climate changing, this year was set to be even more special than ever as it would have seen the Club’s highly-anticipated and long-awaited return to the Cricketer Cup. A decision on whether the Cup will go ahead due to the current circumstances has not yet been made and we will keep you updated as soon as any decisions are made.

Our first-round fixture was due to be against Old Eastbournians at the end of May. The fixture had already widely dubbed in the media El Classicoast in homage to the equally famous rivalry of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

In addition, preparations for Rovers’ Week – Monday 13 July through to Friday 17 July – are, of course currently on hold.
