2019 Club Awards
Club legend Mike Allen (pictured) was one of the big winners at the annual awards do in a packed pavilion. Mike collected the Captain's Award for his tireless efforts both on and off the pitch. The club's 1st XI is finally back in the top flight of the I'Anson League and it is fitting that Mike, as sole survivor of the 2003 Division One team, was honoured. The Glazier Shield for most league runs went to Leon Fourie while the Lambert Shield for most wickets was won by a fellow South African, the skipper Tristan RissikJames Johnson was honoured for most catches while Ryan Lewis was confirmed as winner of most Man of the Match awards alongside, almost inevitably, the Players' Player of the Year.

Fantastic catering was again provided from the kitchen of the Red Lion as club members celebrated a memorable 130th anniversary season. The 1st team had a very strong back half to the summer which ensured mid-table respectability. The 2nd XI introduced more youngsters to league cricket while three of them were also in county action for Sussex. The gentlemen of the Sunday XI continued their relentless quest to find the finest tea in Sussex only to realise that, of course, it's here at home.
2nd XI star players Abdur Rahman and Geoff Hobbs collected the batting and bowling shields while young Harry Adey snaffled the award for most catches. Sunday XI stalwart Chris Williams was awarded the shields for most runs and most catches while Geoff Howe's deadly bowling earned him that award.
Keeper Jack Whittington collected the President's Trophy for Most Improved Player thanks to his great performances on promotion to the 1st XI. Another graduate from the colts, Jude Unwin, won the Best Junior award for his 2nd XI performances. All-rounder and top mower Will Dyer rightly earned the Clubman award while Harry Lambert received the uncoveted trophy for Most Ducks.  
Back in that 1889 season, Fernhurst played three teams, including Lynchmere. It is somehow fitting that the final fixture of 2019 was 'Lynchmere away'. Let the record show that Fernhurst won.

About Us

We are lucky to play on the Recreation Ground next to the Village Green and 'The Red Lion' pub. Fernhurst is in West Sussex (just) between Haslemere and Midhurst.

We are a friendly, well-established club in an idyllic setting with first class facilities, including state of the art nets built in 2013. Our 1st XI plays in Division 1 of the I'Anson League, which incorporates clubs from Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey. It is believed to be the oldest, continuous league in village cricket. We also have a 2nd XI and a Sunday XI which plays friendlies with local villages and a number of 'nomadic' teams, including Sir Tim Rice's 'Heartaches'.

A strong junior section of more than 100 children trains every Saturday morning with several age group teams competing in the Berkeley Sports Two Counties Youth League. Several of our youngsters also represent Sussex at district and county level.

You are very welcome to visit and/or join, the contact details are in the menu at the top. Also there are details of 'Pavilion 2022': all the sports clubs here are raising funds for a new building as we are bursting at the seams.
