Nicola Gorman wrote: "What an excellent day! Was so much more than I think we all ever thought was possible for stoolball! Hopefully this has raised awareness of stoolball, and a great step in to the future of the sport. Am excited for future matches and the prospect of a tour, playing other countries and all other England matches! Privileged to play with such great players, well played everyone, and a huge thank you to everyone involved that made this day a huge success! X"

HappyBig Match Day

I really hope as this is my favourite sport you manage to bring it North desperately waiting in Yorkshire to see Stoolball again. It was played as a special event for the Queens Jubilee but please bring it North would love it Happy

I am so glad that the game went well and I hope it enthused many to take the game up and as Crawley is my home town great to see the advocate for this match is from there Happy

Keep up the good work read with jealousy Sad

Representative matches for 2013

We have been discussing what representative matches that we might arrange for 2013. A seniors rep match likely to be at Horsham again in September. We have been looking at other grounds including the Sussex Cricket Academy ground at Blackstone for possible U21 and Seniors games. In the future a mixed rep. game is also likely to be arranged.

Representative matches

This was a huge success last year which I hope will be repeated and expanded to other age groups in the future. I know it would be helpful to all in the stoolball world to have an early heads up of the likely date in September for the next match as and when it is confirmed. Thanks
