End of an era - After spending the best part of 20 years with Hellingly, Rory Mullen has announced his retirement from cricket. Over the years Rory has been vice captain, coached the under 10's, been on the Committee and has played in all four Saturday sides. He has also turned out numerous times for the Sunday side, as well as umpiring and scoring many friendly games. He signed off for the club with a personal best 8/37 in his final game. A true Clubman, Rory will be very much missed at the Club. The Committee would like to thank Rory for his service to the club over the years and we wish him all the best for the future.
The transfer window has now opened and Hellingly are delighted to say that we currently have five new players joining us for the 2016 season, including Mark Dallaway who is joining us from DPBCC. We also have an exciting signing which we can now reveal is a former Glynde 1st Eleven player. After a couple of years out of the game due to other commitments, he is making his comeback with Hellingly. Stay tuned for more info shortly.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
