Bexhill Cricket Club will begin life back in the Sussex Cricket League Premier Division with a home game against Horsham.

The visit to The Polegrove of perennial title challengers Horsham on Saturday May 10 will be a tough start for a Bexhill side promoted as Division Two runners-up this year.

And things won’t get any easier the following week as Bexhill travel to reigning champions Preston Nomads. That will be followed by a home game against Cuckfield on Saturday May 24.

Bexhill have four local derbies to look forward to in 2014 as Eastbourne came up with them and they will get the chance to renew rivalries with Hastings Priory.

The first of the East Sussex battles will be away to Eastbourne on Saturday May 31 with the return match at The Polegrove scheduled for Saturday August 2.

The home game against Hastings will take place on Saturday July 5 - a day before the one-off fixture at home to the Sussex Development XI - and Bexhill will end the season away to the same opponents on Saturday September 6.
