eaford CC play their home games at the Salts
Cricket Pavilion on Richmond Road and their
first team currently competes in Division 1 of
the East Sussex Cricket League. They are led by
the team of President Geoff Beal and Chairman Phil Court
and the club has made a considerable amount of progress
under their guidance.
Their first team has been in fine form so far in 2015,
putting together a record of nine wins, three draws and two
defeats from their fourteen league matches. This has left
them sitting proudly atop the table with 331 points on the
As long as they are able to keep up their recent level of
performance it will be difficult for any of their rivals to catch

can go on to claim the title and this would be a just reward
for their hard work.
Seaford is not a club to focus solely upon their first XI
however and this is reflected by the fact that they also have a
thriving youth section. This part of the club looks to provide
youngsters from the local area with an opportunity to play
the game in a safe and enjoyable environment.
It is important for any club looking to be successful over
a sustained period of time to be able to produce their own
talent and this is an area they appear to have covered. It will
certainly be exciting to see how their juniors can progress in
the coming years.

transition into senior cricket they also run a number of
additional sides. This allows them to gain experience of
adult level cricket even if they are not yet considered ready
for first team action which can be an important step in the

the first XI to benefit from far greater strength in depth. If
they are ever left short on numbers through injury or work
commitments they have the option of calling players up with
a limited amount of disruption.
Seaford’s success on the field reflects a club that is
cohesive, well run and superbly administered. Hopefully
they will be able to keep up the good work for many years
to come and Cricket Club Magazine wishes them the best of
