Statement from Zac Toumazi, Chief Executive of Sussex Cricket
In response to the ECB's announcement of a life ban from cricket for Lou Vincent, Sussex County Cricket Club can confirm that we have co-operated fully with the ECB ACSU and welcome the sanction imposed.
The episode has been a very difficult time for our players, staff and indeed all supporters of Sussex Cricket.
We are determined to do all we can to drive this issue away from our game and remain vigilant and committed in doing so.
We are grateful for the many messages of support received when this issue became public from those that truly care about Sussex Cricket and the game that we all love. It is critical that we understand that this was the behaviour of individuals and not the club.
It is time for us to look forward to the future and strive for success on and off the field of play.
