Brighton 1 Burnley 1

The jury is not so much out but close to a decision on Graham Potter. No one could understand the dropping of Shane Duffy, player of the year last season, and whilst our play is more attractive on the eye it has not corrected disastrous home form – 8 games without a win. We dominated against [...]

Brighton HAFC, Sussex CC and Sussex Sharks

The jury is sill out on Graham Potter. His reign as Brighton Head Coach began with a victory away at Watford devalued by the latter only achieving their first point at Newcastle this weekend, a draw with West ham and losses to Southampton and Manchester City. Potter plays a more expansive style [...]

Sharks falter

Sussex Sharks should all have guaranteed a home quarter final but after losing to Essex Eagles by 9 runs it was not to be. The biggest cheer of the night was the announcement that Jofra Archer took 6-45 in the Test at Headingley. Brighton is a tolerant place and the Sussex CCC has a long and [...]

Sussex beat Middlesex in Championship

I watched a lively third day of the Championship match with Middlesex which Sussex won by 7 wickets with a day to spare. Speedster Ollie Robinson will remember the match for some time: he won his cap and took 14 wickets for 135 runs. If there was not such a plethora of English international pacemen [...]

Sussex Sharks rampant

Last night I saw Sussex Sharks easily dispose of Glamorgan – the bottom side in the Southern division – for themselves to go top. Sussex had no Jefra Archer who was busy playing for Sussex seconds in Blackstone Gloucestershire, taking 6-27 and scoring a century in preparation for his [...]

After 5 overs when Kent had scored 51 the Sharks looked in trouble. However the Sharks have a bowling attack of raw pace in Jefra Archer (who looked fitter than Jimmy [...]

Dinner at Cricket Museum Hove CCC

I always enjoy a dinner at the cricket museum at Hove cricket ground and last night attended a Pre-Ashes one where Sussex head coach Jason “Dizzy” Gillespie entertained us. Looking at the various exhibits I was struck by a board titled Matt Hobden. I suspect many of our readers do not remember [...]

Meltdown in Hove

How do you manage to go from the potentially victorious position of having the opposition (Northamptonshire) over the barrel of 157-5 on the first day to following on 167 runs behind on the second yesterday? Ask Sussex as this is what happened. The ball can fly around in the morning at Hove but [...]

A glorious day at Arundel

I prefer Arundel week to anything else in the sporting calendar. Nothing surpasses the sheer beauty of the cricket ground bordered by old trees with one gap in them to see the river Arun and downs. You can see the Duke of Norfolk’s castle and the cathedral. It’s short of stands with one [...]

Sussex v Glamorgan

It’s been too cold and I have been otherwise engaged but yesterday, for the first time this summer, I made it down to Hove CCC for the first day of the county game against Glamorgan. There was still a nip in the air but where better to be when the sun comes out than Hove CCC with a pint of [...]
