Lancing Rovers

Champions of the Cricketer Trophy  2019

Following a superb season in 2019 – 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 in 2020.

We are now looking forward to the Rovers long awaited return in 2021 to the premier old boys’ competition, The Cricketer Cup. The ‘preliminary round’ against the Old Cliftonians was due to be on Sunday 23 May at Lancing, however this is now being rearranged due to the weather. Should we win that match then we are again at home on Sunday 13 June against the Old Millfieldians, who beat us in the final of the Cricketer Trophy just a few years ago.

Hopefully Rovers Week will also return this year. It is scheduled to run from Monday 5 to Friday 9 July and we will be playing Uppingham Rovers, the Sussex Martlets, the Old Cranleighans, Oundle Rovers and the Ivy Club.

Any changes to the above will be communicated via our Facebook page, website, and on Twitter @lancingroverscc, where you will also find match updates - some of them in real time too!

Please feel free to come down and support if you can; there’s nothing more glorious than watching cricket on the Upper Field on a glorious summer day.
