The Board of Sussex Cricket Limited is the governing body for cricket within Sussex and derives its authority from the Membership, for whose benefit (and the common good) the Organisation exists.

The role of the Board is:

  • to create, adopt and monitor the strategy to promote cricket in Sussex;
  • to guide, support and monitor the operational management of the Organisation; and,
  • to ensure that all forms of risk are identified and managed effectively.

The Board of Directors meet formally between four and six times per year and the role is unpaid (apart from some expenses).

Sussex Cricket is about ‘inspiring a passion for cricket’. The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that Sussex competes each season at as high a level as possible in the professional game and in competitions organised by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). In addition, ‘inspiring a passion for cricket’ includes developing the future professional cricketers of tomorrow, further enhancing Women and Girls’ cricket, organising and supporting the recreational game across Sussex, and promoting cricket in the community as a means for the development of young people and adults, including those with disabilities.

For a full list of the objectives of Sussex Cricket Limited and the responsibilities of the Board of Directors, please see the RULES and REGULATIONS, available on the Sussex Cricket website ( and follow the prompts at ‘Club’, and then ‘Club Governance’).

The Board of Directors of Sussex Cricket Limited (SCL) consists of elected Directors, an Honorary Treasurer, up to three Executive Directors and up to four independent Non Executive Directors co-opted by the Board of Directors (please see the RULES, paragraphs 7.29 to 7.33).

The Roles, Responsibilities and Individual Competencies of Directors of the Board of SCL are detailed in REGULATION 10 under the heading ‘Qualification for Board Director’.

The Board’s aim is to represent the diverse mix of backgrounds and identities present across our Sussex cricket communities.

In seeking to co-opt two independent Non-Executive Directors, the Board would welcome interest from people with a legal background and/or experience/interest in women’s cricket.

The Board is committed to promoting diversity and inclusiveness and no candidate will be excluded on the grounds of sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race, marital status, disability, age, religion, belief or sexual orientation.

The Briefing session will provide an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in becoming an independent Non-Executive Director of SCL to find out more about the role of the Board and to meet and talk with the current Chair and Chief Executive of the SCL. Application forms will be available at this Briefing session. These will then be considered by the SCL Nominations and Elections Committee and recommendations made to the Board of Directors.
