Welcome to the ACS

Welcome to the website of the Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians. If you are looking for an answer to any question about cricket, seeking clarification about a particular record or feat, or searching for information on a team or a particular player, you have come to the right place, as the members of the Association have a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the game, its records and the feats of players and teams all over the world.

If you have a query, please send an e-mail to secretary@acscricket.com and the Secretary of the Association will point you in the right direction.

If you are undertaking family history and seeking information about a relative, or if you are looking for information about a particular match, you will find the CricketArchive site a useful starting point.

Many members of the Association have helped to compile this archive, and the information you are seeking may already be there.

ACS Sales is moving

Since 15 February, Peter and Jenny Griffiths of Limlow Books have retired from managing ACS Sales. The ACS would like to thank them for their eight years of first-class service.

Neil Beck of Castle Cricket Books, Pevensey, has taken over. All book orders and sales enquiries received by ACS Sales from now onwards will be dealt with by him – though you can order online via our website shop.

We very much regret a hold-up in fulfilling the latest book orders. This is due firstly to a technical problem with the franking machine used by ACS Sales and secondly to delays in the printing of three of the four books for this quarter. Neil is not to blame for either problem, and has been working hard to sort out the technical hitch. We hope to be in a position to resume normal service soon.

The new address for Sales is:

ACS Sales
Castle Road
East Sussex
BN24 5LG
Telephone: +44 (0)1323 460174
Email: sales@acscricket.com

ACS Sales is no longer dealing with any membership matters. Members should communicate directly with the Membership Secretary, Huw Nathan, at:

Meads Place
40 Sergison Road
Haywards Heath
West Sussex
RH16 1HX
Telephone: +44 (0)7779 324769
