Young Sussex League cricketers selected for Brighton Brunswick’s tour of the Comp.

Brunswick have been touring the West Country since 1935 but after a number of fixture problems last season, the Brunswick’s Management Committee met to discuss the way forward. David Bowden, president of Sussex CCC and vice-president of Brighton Brunswick put them in contact with Paul Bryson, Club & League Manager Lancashire Cricket Board. Paul in turn, introduced Brunswick to the L&DCC who took hold of the reins and, with the assistance of Andy Grice, the Liverpool under-18s manager, fixtures were quickly arranged.

The tour commenced on Sunday July 15 when the party left for Southport, where it’s based.

It played Formby CC on Monday July 16, The Northern CC on Tuesday July 17, Ormskirk CC on Wednesday July 18;

..... and is to play the Under 25 Liverpool League Representative XI on Thursday July 19, in an all-day match at Liverpool Cricket Club’s historic ground commencing at 11.00am.

Four young Sussex League cricketers have been selected for this tour of the north west with Brighton Brunswick. Cuckfield’s Joe Ludlow and Josh Hayward, Billingshurst’s Tom Haynes and Bognor’s Ryan Maskel all picked for the July tour. Joe Ludlow of Brighton Brunswick has combined with the Spen Cama Cricket Foundation in an exciting new partnership to form what in future will be known as the Brighton Brunswick Spen Cama Cricket Foundation Award. These two partners will provide finance for up and coming young club cricketers over 18 years of age which will meet their expenses on a tour to Lancashire.

The new partnership is designed to provide the selected players with a wider experience of playing a high level of cricket outside of Sussex. The scheme has received the full backing of Keith Greenfield, the Sussex County Cricket Club’s director of cricket and also the Sussex Premier Cricket League executive committee. Josh Hayward

Commencing this season, the Brighton Brunswick awarded bursaries to four young cricketers selected from clubs in Sussex by the Sussex Premier Cricket League Executive Committee, to join its tour party of this part of  Lancashire. In addition, a minimum of four young players from Brighton Brunswick’s own youth section were awarded similar bursaries. The tour party this year will play against teams from leading Premier League clubs in Liverpool including an Under 25 League XI. Last season Ludlow scored 422 runs at an average of 30 including a top score of 117* v Roffey.
