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 [...]

Brighton 1 Manchester City 4

Prior to kick-off I wanted to take my godson for breakfast at Brighton Marina. My choice was the Malmaison but a woman with folded arms at the entrance said the hotel was closed. This was not strictly true. It had been taken over completely by Manchester City, its players and staff. God knows what [...]

Sussex sports

Our dear friends at Crystal Palace, by beating Cardiff, kept the Seagulls up as we appeared to be sleepwalking into relegation. Sussex Sharks lost yesterday by 116 runs to 4th place Gloucestershire at the Saffrons Ground, Eastbourne. I went to the match. I like the outer grounds of Sussex, [...]

Hampshire beat Sussex by 9 runs

I do not suppose there will be more than a paragraph in the sporting media on Hampshire’s victory in the Royal London Cup but it was a thrilling contest. For the second match in succession Sussex took the game to a final over but unlike Essex there was no victory. Hampshire set an imposing total [...]

Spurs 1 Brighton 0

Braveheart Brighton threw their bodies on the line but cruelly Spurs got their winner in the 88th minute through Christian Eriksen. Braveheart is not the best cinema comparison  – Zulu! would be as it was like Rorke’s Drift at Spurs new stadium as Lewis Dunk threw himself at and into the [...]

Sussex beat Surrey in Royal London Cup

Where better to be on a sun drenched day than Hove? Bob Tickler’s flat in Nice maybe. Sussex inflicted Surrey’s second defeat in the Royal London – the once Gillette Cup – by 2 wickets and 11 balls. David Wiese the big South African all rounder was unquestionably man of the match [...]

Brighton 0 Cardiff 2

Brighton’s fourth consecutive defeat without scoring has opened up the relegation trap door. Cardiff are now just two points behind. True, the Seagulls have the superior goal difference and a game in hand. However the run in comprises away games at Spurs and Arsenal and a final game at home to [...]

Brighton 0 Bournemouth 5

It’s squeaky bum time in Sussex as Brighton were thrashed by neighbours Bournemouth 5-0 in El Coastico. Defeat next Tuesday at home to Cardiff and we could be joining Huddersfield and Fulham. The key to Brighton’s survival has been home form and a reliable defence but neither were apparent [...]

Brighton 0 Manchester City 1

When you go down one goal down after four minutes against Manchester City it’s tough, very tough. However, City had little of their swagger and did not overrun the Seagulls thereafter. Indeed if we had a bit more adventure we might have got back into this semi-final FA Cup tie. Our best [...]
