All members and supporters are welcome to pay their tributes anytime between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday. Both men were revered throughout the cricket world and had strong Sussex connections.

Tony Greig played for Sussex from 1967 to 1978 as an all rounder and was captain from 1973 to 1977. He had an outstanding cricketing career captaining England with great distinction. Tony was instrumental in launching World Series Cricket before becoming a famous broadcaster.

Christopher Martin-Jenkins was one of the world’s leading cricket journalists and one of the best known voices on Test Match Special. A past President of MCC, Christopher was a great supporter of Sussex and was proud of the role his son, Robin, played in the county’s championship winning teams.

Sussex Chairman, Jim May, said “ Everyone connected with Sussex cricket is deeply saddened by the untimely loss of these two cricketing giants. We are opening two Books of Condolence at the County Ground to enable our members and supporters to play tribute to these two great men of Sussex Cricket.”
