Sussex award Keith Greenfield Testimonial

Sussex CCC Media Release

Sussex CCC are pleased to announce that Keith Greenfield has been awarded a Testimonial for 2004.

Keith has represented Sussex at all levels of the game from a professional player to his current position as Director of the ECB/Sussex Academy.

Keith joined the Club in 1985 as part of the Youth Opportunities Scheme and progressed to the professional staff in 1987. In all Keith played 78 first class matches, his highest score was 154* v Glamorgan at Hove in 1996, the year he was awarded his County Cap.

Keith is delighted with the news:

"It is a great honour that the Club has decided to recognise my service in this way. I wouldn't have changed a moment of my career with Sussex, I realise how lucky I am to have a job that I love doing and this is just the icing on the cake."

David Green, Chairman of Sussex CCC:

"Keith has represented the County at every level of cricket since he joined the Club in 1985; he was the country's very first participant in the Youth Opportunities Scheme... a professional player... 2nd XI coach and now Director of our ECB Academy.

"Keith is a Sussex man born and bred and he has given the Club 18 years' loyal service and is very deserving of this recognition, he is exactly the type of player who Benefits and Testimonials were devised for. We wish Keith great success in his Testimonial year and I am sure that everyone connected with Sussex cricket will support him ."
