Catsfield Sports Clubs

We have several well established Sports Clubs

Catsfield Football Club

Although we do not know when football was first played in the village, we do know that there is reference in the Bexhill Directory of 1907 to say that the Club was formed on 13 February 1906. The Club disbanded after the 1996/97 season and reformed at the start of the 2001/02 season and has enjoyed league and cup successes over the past eight seasons.

The Club, which now has two teams, plays their home games at Catsfield Playing Field and fixtures, results and league tables can be found in the local Observer newspapers or on the East Sussex Football League Web site: www.esfl.org.uk

Catsfield Cricket Club

Very little information about Catsfield Cricket Club is available, in the form of records and other documents. But most members of the Club know that it was founded on September 22nd 1799, when Edward Quaife of Catsfield played a Mr. Martin of Battle, at Hooe Common, for ten guineas a side, Wickets were pitched at 1pm.

In the Twentieth century, cricket has been played regularly at Catsfield and in the finest sporting spirit (to quote Arthur Gilligan) as it currently is today.

Catsfield Stoolball Club

The game of stoolball, more than 500 years old, is the forerunner of the modern game of cricket. The modern rules of stoolball were consolidated at a meeting at Glynde in East Sussex in 1881. Until the introduction of secondary schools, Catsfield C of E Primary School taught children until the age of 14 so stoolball was one of the sports played.

Nowadays we have one ladies team and one mixed team in the village, both of which play friendly games and tournaments against other village teams between May and August.
