We enjoyed a very pleasing attendance at our AGM where the membership had the opportunity to thank Amanda Jupp who has been our Chairman for six years.

Alistair Subba Row, the incoming chairman at Arundel Castle Cricket Club, says he is honoured, proud and excited to help start writing a new chapter in the rich history of this famous sporting ground. Alistair is executive chairman at London-based Farebrother, a privately-owned commercial real estate consultancy, and is focused on ensuring the cricket club continues to flourish. He succeeds Amanda Jupp at one of the most famous cricket grounds, not just in the heart of West Sussex but in the cricketing world.

His family history is steeped in cricket folklore thanks to his father, Raman Subba Row CBE, a former cricketer who played for England, Cambridge University, Surrey and Northamptonshire. He was also an influential figure at Lord’s having served as chairman of the TCCB, (now ECB) and as an ICC match referee.

He said: “It is a huge honour to be asked to become the new chairman of Arundel Castle Cricket Club. Cricket has been played at the castle ground for over 125 years and staged some of the most incredible matches hosting international and domestic teams. The club has a deep rooted history since the ground was built in 1895 and a solid relationship with the Duke of Norfolk’s Estate. We really are so lucky to have the Duke’s continuous support for the club and foundation activities. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a lazy summer’s afternoon watching cricket in the famous and naturally landscaped amphitheatre. We will always provide high quality cricket on an amazing stage and we will continue to develop our variety of cricket, covering men’s and women’s international, county, disability, and both private and state schools’ cricket.”
