Rob reported that the club is extremely excited with the new pavilion that is close to completion at Roebuck Park. This has been a long term project and will be the finishing touch to a stunning new cricket ground. Kevin Hallett and Ken Dawber have been working round the clock to make sure it is ready for the start of the season and have produced an amazing venue for the third/fourth and Sunday XI. The club is looking forward to the 2016 season with a great deal of optimism with all four Saturday teams in a strong position at the start of the season. The club is committed to continue to strive forward after a period of successful years both on and off the pitch. The juniors are also looking to take the next step after a successful 2015 season and carry that form into the senior matches they play.

SHIP’S LOG: Crew members of the Starship USS Pharaoh turned out to support the Hailsham Old Pavilion Society (HOPS) when it screened Star Trek: The Motion Picture at The Pavilion on February 12 to celebrate 50 years since Star Trek first hit our TV screens in 1966. The USS Pharaoh is an Eastbourne-based Star Trek Group which meets twice a month to discuss episodes of Star Trek and indulge in live action role playing.
