RECORDS

Records are taken from Play-Cricket entries for the combined West Chiltington & Thakeham Cricket Club unless stated. Sadly data from pre-merger is incomplete and therefore for the purposes of accuracy, we have chosen to stick to WCTCC records only.

JUNIOR RECORDS

The merged club colts' section started in 2005 with an U12s side containing current players like Jake Hodgson and John Tolson. Several colts and ex colts have played 1st XI such as Charlie Davies, Reuben Taylor and Ben Lucking. The Chambers all started in the creche at Horsham and came to us when they were older. Jack Elliott-Monday has had the most remarkable rise. He started at Steyning batting at 11 and not bowling. He came to West Chilt in 2011 as an U14 and is now an established all rounder. So I guess what we're saying is that if you continue to improve and work hard at your game, you will reap the results. A few other familiar names are below.
