|SCB Mission Statement|
The Suffolk Cricket Board (SCB) has a formal understanding with the England and Wales Cricket Board. The ECB has devolved the responsibility of the management and governance of the game in Suffolk to the SCB. The SCB as part of its agreement receives an amount of funding from the ECB and other partners, and the support of a paid official the “Cricket Development Manager” who is employed by the ECB to work alongside the SCB to improve the recreational game in the county. As part of its responsibility the SCB is required to achieve a number of improvements on an annual basis that reflect both the national and local agendas.
Following the outstanding success of Suffolk Over 50s in the ECB Over 50 Competition over the past 3 seasons, reaching the quarter finals in 2011 and 2012 and reaching the semi final in 2013, it is under consideration to enter a Suffolk Over 50s 2nd XI in the Home Counties Championship in 2014. These matches will be played on Thursdays from the end of May.
If any Club has members who have been fortunate enough to reach the age of maturity (in the 2nd XI this could be over 49 on the day of the match) and are not yet involved in Senior Cricket or would like to be considered for selection can they please contact either:
Rick Jones on 07807760479 or email
We are very anxious that anyone who wishes to be involved does not “slip through the net”.
The cricket is serious and competitive as it is played against other counties, yet played with a smile on the face in the manner that we all remember from bygone years!!
