An Aggers /Johnston moment

For many the funniest-ever broadcast was when Jonathan Agnew and Brian Johnston lost it in a fit of giggles after Aggers said Ian Botham could not quite his leg over. I later found out that the producer was less than amused and the two were never paired again. Yet even today when I hear it I [...]

Brighton 1 West Ham 0

West Ham are not the first team you think of as relegation candidates but nonetheless one which Brighton would seek to beat at home which we narrowly did. After playing Manchester City and Spurs we now have an easier run with only Chelsea of the big boys at home on December 15th. Brighton scored in [...]

T 20 final day

This was my first T20 blast final which, though enjoyable, did not go to plan or form. Imagine a football format where say Liverpool, Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal contest the semis. The police would not like fans sticking around once their team was out but this is precisely what happened [...]

Sussex v Leicestershire

Whilst a second division championship game may not be of intensive interest to our readers , it was nonetheless an always eventful day in which 18 wickets fell .  It was also bitterly  cold with an icy wind off the sea that was more than an autumnal chill. Sussex added a few more runs in the [...]

Susses Sharks reach the final

Will Beer is not a name you will know, he is scarcely that well known in Sussex, but he came in for leggie Rashid Khan [...]

Brighton 3 Manchester Utd 2

It proved an excellent week for Sussex sport with 3 wins for the Sussex Sharks and consummated by Brighton HAFC’s first win in the Premier and second over Manchester Utd.

Sussex Sharks Bite

Sussex Sharks won their first T20 Blast game at home over Glamorgan in Hove in some style with a hat trick from Tymal Mills in the final over. A few weeks ago Jefra Archer did the same at Lords against Middlesex. We are now in the business end of the T20 and, with quarter final places assured to [...]

Rain, rain go away

I finally watched 45 minutes of play at Lords before the heavens opened and I hot-footed back to Hove for the crucial T20 blast game against Kent. I say hot-footed but once again there was a trespasser on the line at East Croydon so the Gatwick non-Express crawled pitiably and then a decision was [...]

Sussex Sharks lose again

After our excellent victory at Lords in the week over Middlesex we were flying in anticipation of high-flying Somerset, top run scorers in the south division. Alas it was not to be. We posted a score of 169, Laurie Evans scoring 96 of them but it was never going to be enough with Somerset winning [...]
