Football Club.  Football should be kicking off by the time you read this. Thanks to some help from a couple of local firms it looks like we will be running 2 teams in the West Sussex league again this season. Training has started on a midweek evening behind the pavilion 6.00 for 6.30 pm start. New players are very welcome. Fixtures for the first month’s games are listed in the pavilion and the Cricketers Arms.

League web page https://fulltime.thefa.com/ff/LeagueDetails – when asked to search league – type in Brickability and it is the Brickability West Sussex League 1st XI play in Championship and 2nd XI are in Div 3 North this season.

Cricket Club:   Following a difficult season for the Cricket club, the President and Groundsman moved away and the club have had to make do with only the one playing facility this season but, overall, I think things have worked out well. Holidays, the World Cup and test matches against India have all played a part in the shortage of players for both teams. The commitment of players continues to be a problem throughout the last couple of months. As I write this with four games to go in the season, the 1st XI  are sitting in 5th place and look as if they may make 4th spot in a league of 10 teams. The 2nd XI are 8th in a league of 10 but look as if they are safe from relegation this season.

League Fixtures for September 2018:

Sat 1st –  1st XI Eastergate 1st XI Away / Arundel 2nd XI Home
