                           WESTFIELD C.C. - League Update 2017

Congratulations to Peter Baker (Captain) and his team who finished our league season last Saturday (27th August) with a comprehensive and important win over closest rivals Kerala Strikers.

We are top of division 9. However, Kerala Strikers still have one more game to play next Saturday and if they win then they will take over as leaders of the division and we will finish in a creditable 2nd place. By finishing in 2nd place we are still guaranteed promotion again, and will play in division 8 next season. However this may change as ESCL are currently reviewing their league structure for next season, but we will still be playing at a higher level.

After 224* years of playing friendly matches the decision was made to enter a side into the East Sussex Cricket League, and we started in division 12 which is the lowest division so our progress has been excellent given that we will be in division 8 next season.

Congratulations must also go to the background members for all their hard work and support throughout the season, especially David (Leggy) Legg and his trusty helpers for providing the best wickets in the division, if not the county, every week.

It is testament to players and members that we were undefeated at home this season in the league and only lost early season friendly games when we were testing ourselves against higher level opposition.

We still have a programme of 6 friendly games before the end of the season, please check on our fixture list - the game against Sedlescombe CC is played for each year in memory of John Cornford who was well known to both teams.

* 224 is correct---cricket has been played in Westfield since 1790 according to local history and we joined the East Sussex League in 2014 so 224 years!
