Hi Preston Nomads
Early July 2013 ICC EUROPEAN DIV 1 CHAMPS COME TO THE SCMG !!
The ICC European Div 1 Championships are now looming very large on the clubs radar. It will be a very proud moment when the action starts on Monday 8th July at 10 am in the morning on both squares. The Sussex County web site advised thus :-
ICC Europe has announced their tournament schedule for 2013 with one of their exciting events this summer coming to Sussex.
The ICC European Division 1 Championship (T20) will be the flagship event taking place in the County between Monday 8th and Sunday 14th July.
The event is brought to the shores of England to Sussex where 12 European teams will battle it out to grab one of two qualification spots to play in the ICC Global World Twenty20 Qualifier in UAE in November 2013. It is wonderful opportunity to bring European cricket to England and show the great development of the sport across the continent, with matches played at Hove, Horsham, Preston Nomads CC and the Sutton Winson Academy Ground, Blackstone.
Former Sussex CCC Chief Executive, Dave Brooks, who will be supporting the event as an ICC volunteer said, "The County is delighted to host ICC European Division 1. With a route to the ICC World T20 Qualifier in UAE in 2013, we can offer great facilities and hopefully great weather. I am sure the floodlit final at the County Ground, Hove will offer a wonderful finale for the teams, and cricket supporters in Sussex to enjoy,” .
