Sussex County Cricket Club
Ian Poysden said: “I’ve always been very proud of the efforts Sussex County Cricket Club make to encourage the next generation of young cricketers & engage with groups that wouldn’t normally find cricket as accessible as others more fortunate than themselves. I believe strongly in giving something back to the community and that is the Sussex way too.” Sussex County Cricket Club is the oldest within the domestic cricket clubs within the structure of England and Wales. It represents the historic county of Sussex and its limited overs team is called the Sussex Sharks.
