Sutton FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/CRICKETCLUBMAG Sutton CRICKET CLUB S utton CC was first established in 1857 when their home matches were played on ‘The Green’ in Sutton and since then they have gone on to put together a history of which they have every right to be proud. They have achieved ECB ‘Clubmark’ accreditation which recognises that they provide good quality cricket programmes for young people. When the club was first set up Cheam Road, where the team plays now was part of the Lower Cheam House Estate owned by the Antrobus family who offered its use to Sutton for the following season. They are now led by the team of Chairman Ron Lambe and President Ian Philippe and the club has made a considerable amount of progress under their guidance. Playing their home games on Gander Green Lane in Surrey their first team is competing in the Premier Division of the Surrey Championship. At approximately the halfway point in the season the team can be happy with their efforts so far, having compiled a record of six wins and three defeats from their nine matches. This sees them lying in 3rd place in the table with 141 points on the board. The team have every right to be happy with their performances so far and will be keen to continue playing to the same standard over their remaining fixtures. Although catching runaway leaders Sunbury looks unlikely the team can still put together a campaign to be proud of. Sutton CC is not a club to focus solely upon their senior section however and this is reflected by the fact that they also have a number of youth sides in place. “Sutton’s form this season is a testament to all the hard work that has gone into making the club a success in recent times.” 20 Issue 41 Sutton Club Info - - Twitter : @SuttonCricket - Found in 1885
