Expect a long fight in the 1st Division this season with a few teams in with a chance for the top spot. Horsham B and Crawley Community C both started with maximum wins to get their title challenges under way.
Juan Munoz-Lopez, Jacob Evens and young Harry Yip came up with a very impressive 10-0 over Foresters G Ben Cooper, Sarah Hilditch and Stuart Brooks none of whom had seen a bat since April.
Horsham B 10 Foresters G 0
Robin Stace and Andy Meads alongside Graham Green made up the Community team, the two ex Sussex County players Stace and Meads having too much experience for the youngsters from Spinners. Zach Hodges, Sheel Malde and Sam Watts will have easier nights.
Crawley Community C 10 Horsham Spinners E 0
Last years runners up made a steady start, Three each for Johnny Clarke and Tony Steel, Richard Steel going down to Matt Van Yperen and Ed Cozens but getting home 11-4 in the fifth against Freddy Goodall.
Foresters F 8 Horsham Spinners D 2
Another 10-0 was chalked up by Foresters I over two man Copthorne A, Matt Caddy, Richard Caddy and Minesh Agnilhotri taking out Steve Simpson and John Domingo.
