Club History

The earliest recorded date so far for a match involving a Ferring team is 1864 when the diary of Agnes Henty recalled " watched the cricket match between Ferring and Kingston in the field ".  The precise location is unknown. In those times it is unlikely there was a permanent ground for regular matches or any "club" facilities as such. Whilst a copy of the Worthing Gazette fixtures from 17 April 1895 include Ferring (copy below).

We have been playing at the Little Twitten Recreation Ground since 1953, when the ground relocated from South Ferring where it was re-established in 1948 after the second world war. Prior to that, in the 1930s the ground was located in a farmer's field behind the Village Hall in North Ferring.

The Victorian railway carriage which served as the changing rooms post war moved with the club and remained in use until the early 1990s. This was replaced by a pavilion created from a converted mobile home. In 2012 this was extended and improved, and new net facilities built,  following a £50,000 Sport England grant.

2024 marks a new era for the club as the continuing growth and success of our Colts' section, which we started in 2012, and the changing nature of cricket, created the momentum in favour of playing Saturday league cricket, with points and promotion at stake. The ambition is to play at the highest level possible, whilst retaining our Sunday friendly fixtures , mid week Slam matches and of course a full Colts' cricketing calendar.
