Wanderers were 167 all out, Tim Pitman getting 3 wickets, Andy Williams, Tom Bristow-Diamond and Derek Longley all getting 2 wickets each and Nick Gurr 1. It was a lovely day and the wicket is playing well. Just as well as we host the Sussex Girls Under 12’s playing Dorset on Saturday commencing at 1pm. We were very pleased to be able to offer them our ground last year and delighted they are coming again. Do come and watch as their skill, energy and sportsmanship is an example to all cricketers. Sunday we play away on the Downs at Bexhill against Parkhurst from 2.30 onwards. The Playing Field is going to be very busy this weekend with the rounders match Sunday afternoon and the footballers playing football golf on Monday afternoon.
