It was a notable week for both the Seagulls and Sussex Sharks.
The Seagulls maintained their unbeaten record over West Ham with a 2-0 win at the London Stadium.

He really deserves another England call-up.
Brighton’s South American recruitment is impressive and Moises Caicedo has slipped in perfectly for Yves Bissouma.
Argentian Alex Mac Allister scored the first from a penalty , Leandro Trossard added the second goal.
After thumping Somerset in the Royal London, Sussex Sharks met second-placed Middlesex in a match to decide the Division A winners yesterday .
Sussex won by 157 runs and go to the semi-finals next Tuesday.
Once again Chet Pujara provided a master class with his 174.
Tom Alsop scored 185 not out.
Sussex Sharks are helped by so many counties losing players to the Hundred – Middlesex lost Eion Morgan and John Simpson.
Nevertheless, we fans are delighted after our poor performances in the County Championship and T20. The only problem is now that Tuesday’s semi final clashes with Fulham v Brighton
