Pease Pottage cricket team

This shows the Pease Pottage cricketers having their photograph taken in a very grassy outfield. From the minutes of the AGM I note that the groundsman was Mr Jackson, but perhaps the club has yet to supply him with a mower!
If I remember the rules correctly, the batsmen cannot run more than six runs if the ball is lost whilst on the field of play.
Those I can recognise are Roger Ray holding his Pease Pottage cap, with his brother Joe Ray standing behind his right shoulder. Holding the ball is Gerry Ray, and on the extreme right is Albert Cordingley.
The Large Version shows an invitation received by the club to attend a garden party at the Hyde on 27th June 1938. The invitation was received from the High Sheriff of Sussex, locally known better as Mr J. Raymond Warren, and his wife Mrs Eveline Warren.
Select Open Document to view a newspaper cutting reporting on the AGM for 1939 and the match and financial results for the 1938 season.
