Manor Ground Memories

As we settle in to the 2020 season without (at the moment!) any cricket, we thought our members and supporters may like to hear from some of the players who have played for our great club, contributing to its history and reminding us why it is a such a special place. Over the next few weeks, we will cast the net far and wide, to include long-term veterans, single-season overseas players and everything in between. Please add your comments in response below, perhaps with your memories of playing with our contributors or even just to correct their memory!

Manor Ground Memories from Terry Burstow

Manor Ground Memories from Anthony Aduhene
For this edition of Manor Memories, we hear from hero of the 1992 cup final, former housemate of Tim Dunn, legendary bowler and occasional all-rounder, Anthony Aduhene. A huge character with a very distinctive bowling action, Anthony was the mainstay of the club’s bowling attack in the 1990s. Click here for more....
Manor Ground Memories from Blayne Cornford
We catch up with one of our most memorable overseas players, Blayne Cornford, who joined Worthing for the unforgettable Ashes summer of 2005. Blayne was a player of the highest pedigree and part of an outstanding group that came to us from Adelaide Grade Cricket in the 2000s. Click here for more....
Manor Ground Memories from Dave Renham
Next in our Manor Memories series is someone judged by many as one of the most talented cricketers produced by the club. Dave Renham played for Worthing at a junior level, before becoming one of the best batsman in the Sussex League throughout the late 1980s and 1990s. Click here for more....
Manor Ground Memories from John Glover
Next in our Manor Ground Memories, we speak to former captain and (former) fearsome quick bowler, John Glover. John came to the club in 2012 and played for 5 seasons, captaining the 1st XI in 2015 and 2016. A hugely popular addition to the club on and off the field. Click here for more....
Manor Ground Memories from Tim Dunn
The only person who could start the series is our Chairman, Tim Dunn. A fabulous servant to the club, probable leading ever run-scorer (to be debated!) and the only captain to have won one of the major trophies on offer in the Sussex County League. Click here for more....
