Cricket has been played on the village green at Frant since at least 1860 and we are privileged to have the first photographic evidence of team sport in the UK, as verified by Reading University; a copy of this photograph hangs in the Pavillion alongside the signed photograph from Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff wishing Frant success in the coming season. Today’s squad comprises around 20 players with Frant youth prominent among the membership and key to the team’s considerable success in recent seasons. Frant play Sunday afternoon friendlies and have on average 10 fixtures per season under the Captaincy of Dave Pearson, mainly local teams or touring sides with the annual fixture against Sir Martin Sorrell’s WPP, the most prominent. As a small club with limited financial resources, Frant CC are extremely appreciative of the ongoing sponsorship provided by Paul Philips of Sunniva Carpets & Flooring, of Tunbridge Wells which facilitates ongoing work to the Square and maintenance of the Pavilion.
A friendly atmosphere pervades at Frant, with family members and local residents among the spectators. New members are always welcome to join this sociable club, please contact Dave Pearson on 01892 750789 if interested.
