A day at the County Ground

Yesterday summer had come with fine sunny weather and a cooling sea breeze and what better place to enjoy if than at the county ground at Hove for the first day of the Championship game v Leicestershire? Leicestershire put Sussex into bat and took 3 wickets in the first session. Once again captain [...]

Sharks triumph & Seagulls still to appoint.

Whisper it softly to Duggie Heath, but I’m beginning to warm to T20 cricket. Last week, in the “red ball” championship, Middlesex and Sussex played out a bore draw in which neither side had a second innings. In contrast, the T20 Vitality Blast match between Sussex Sharks and [...]

Middlesex v Sussex

Yesterday I went to Lords as a guest of Duggie Heath. This fixture in my youth was played on the August Bank Holiday and attracted a crowd of 10,000 but at the most there were 5,000 spectators at Lords with the Edrich, Mound and Tavern stands all closed. It was an attritional day of cricket. Sussex [...]

Sussex win and ciao de Zerbi

The real sporting excitement in Brighton and Hove yesterday was not at the Amex where fans said goodbye to Roberto de Zerbi but at the county ground where Sussex CCC won a low scoring thriller by 21 runs over Yorkshire. At tea, Yorkshire only needed 25 runs with Adam Lyth and Revis installed at the [...]

A day at Hove County ground (Sussex v Northants 3rd Day)

I got a lift back from the Amex yesterday from Jon Filby the Chairman of Sussex CCC and left my glasses in his car. He retrieved them and invited me to lunch yesterday in the boardroom to collect them. There were two problems: the first was I was tired and fancied a refuel at home; and, secondly, [...]

Brighton 0 Arsenal 3

Arsenal swept aide Brighton 3-0 with no difficulty. The tone was set in the opening minute when Gabriel’s free header from a well-flighted free kick went just past the post. Bukayo Saka and Kai Haivetz scorned more chances but Saka converted a penalty to give the Gunners the lead. Two more goals [...]

Brighton Bulletin

The announcement of Brighton’s record profit of just over £122m for 2022/23 rather overshadowed a dull goalless draw at Brentford last night. To achieve such a profit whilst maintaining a Top Ten position and tracing a FA Cup semi final and this season competing in the Europa League is no mean [...]

Brighton 1 AS Roma 0 (Europa League Round of 16)

In the end the deficit of 4 goals was too much though Brighton did have their chances. We play good football in 75% of the pitch but lack bite in the box. They really miss Mitoma, March and – above all their top scorer in this competition – Joao Pedro. In summing up the campaign, it’s [...]
