Club Background
 
Lindfield is one of the oldest clubs in the county having been established in 1747 and is part of a long and proud history of cricket in Sussex
 
We are a Sussex Cricket Board FOCUS club

 

We have attained ECB CLUBMARK status

             
 

We are a Community Amateur Sports Club

We have a thriving senior playing membership with over 90 senior playing members

 We field 4 league sides on a Saturday and 2 friendly sides on a Sunday
 
We have an ever expanding Academy (over 200 members, both boys and girls) with an excellent reputation in the area

 Over 30 Academy members played adult cricket in 2012

 The 1st and 2nd XI’s played in the Sussex Invitation League from its inception in 1979
 
The 1st XI were champions in 1982 and 1994 while the 2nd XI won their competition in 2002
 
 

In 2008 the 1st and 2nd XI’s joined Division 3 (East) of the Sussex County League

The 2nd XI won their division in 2010 

The 3rd XI, the Swans, joined the Stoner Mid-Sussex Cricket League in 2002 and gained promotion from Division 3 in 2007 after finishing 2nd 

In 2008 we formed a 4th XI, the Cygnets, who joined the Stoner Mid-Sussex League Conference and then in 2009 replaced the Swans in Division 3

After a league restructure at the start of 2011, the 3rd XI now play in Division 3 and the 4th XI in Division 4 of a five division league
