DISABILITY CHAMPION CLUB
New for 2023, Eastergate has become a Disability Champion Club, sponsored by Sussex CCC with the training sessions supported
by Sussex Coaches.
Steve Grant, Club Chairman said “Eastergate CC has a proud history of inclusivity and one of our proudest achievements is that one of our qualified coaches and first-team players is a capped England Disability player. The club is also accredited under the ECB Clubmark scheme so when, with the support of a local school, we were asked to consider becoming a champion club with some funding from the county, the decision was a relatively easy one to take.”
Over the coming weeks training sessions will be taking place on Wednesday afternoons with the support of Sussex cricket coaches.
We are looking to welcome new faces to the club over the coming months.

Huge congratulations and thanks to all committee members and club members that have driven for Eastergate to gain this status.
