BHO – BRITISH HISTORY ONLINE – IFIELD

“Cricket was played on Ifield green apparently by 1721 and certainly by the 19th century, as it has continued to be. The Ifield cricket club was founded in 1804 and survived in 1985”

 

To: The Ifield Society

Hello

According to this report, cricket has been played in Ifield Green in 1721

The club was officially formed in 1804.

Could be worth  celebrating the 300 years of cricket on our green 

If it is a possibility the cricket club would like to discuss.

Regards 

Raj
