Fourth for Sussex at Chelmsford

Sussex did well, by placing fourth, with their depleted senior team at the South East Inter-counties match at Chelmsford on Sunday.

Bolstered by a string of Under 20 athletes Sussex scored 671 points behind winners Essex who scored 782 points, Kent who scored 707 points and Middlesex 686 points. All teams, apart from the Hosts, struggled to field represented teams with Hampshire only sending women to the match and Surrey not managing to get a team at all.

The results look more like an area League match and there were plenty of empty lanes.

Sparkling third place for Sussex Schools at Crawley

It was a great afternoon for Sussex Schools in the Inter-counties Schools match on Saturday.

In dull and blustery conditions that was a hindrance to most athletes at K2 the Sussex team finished a splendid third in a tight match that saw Kent lead all the way and win with 612 points with Surrey taking second place with 548 points after Sussex had held second place for much of the match.

Sussex had to settle for third place with 515 points to hold off Hampshire who scored 504 points.

Brighton & Hove win Nail-biter

A neck and neck battle for the Sussex Under 13 League Crown went to the wire on a damp, murky Sunday at Crawley’s K2 stadium before Brighton & Hove got the better of reigning champions, Crawley.

Brighton & Hove, 349.5 points, took an early lead and managed to hold on to a narrow margin and this reversed last year’s result. Crawley scored 345,  Horsham Blue Star finished in third with 284 points, well clear of fourth placed Chichester.
