19th December 2019 - County Championship - Sussex Rankings

The rankings that have been put together by the County Championship Match Secretaries for Season 2019/2020, and used as the register and thus the basis for consideration for selection for County Championships Matches, are as follows:

The ranking list for the Cadets and Juniors has yet to be finalised by the Match Secretary.

Seniors

Sussex 1 - Premier Division (Match Secretary Maureen Hazell & Captain Teresa Bennett)

  • Weekend 5th/6thth October 2019 - Cippenham TTC, Bucks;
  • Weekend 2nd/3rd February 2020 - Grantham;

Sussex 2 & Sussex 3 - Division 2C (Match Secretary & non-playing Captain Maureen Hazell)

  • Saturday 5th October 2019 - New Malden, Surrey;
  • Sunday 10th November - Westbury, Wiltshire;

18th December 2019 - County Championship - Sussex Senior 2nd & 3rd Teams - Results

The following report was provided by Maureen Hazell the Match Secretary for the Team. Both Sussex 2 and Sussex 3 have completed their matches for the season after playing in New Malden Surrey on the 5th October and in Wiltshire on the 10th November.

Sussex 2 having been demoted last season were in the same division as Sussex 3. The players managed to justify their rankings in the first weekend when Sussex 2 promptly despatched Sussex 3 by a 10 - 0 scoreline. They narrowly lost to Surrey 6-4 and that was the only loss for our second team through both fixtures on each weekend. Sussex 2 then finished a very close second to Surrey 2. Things were tougher though for our third team who were short of female players for both weekends. This was unfortunate with last minute emergencies, injuries and family health issues that could not be avoided. Players were Mark Collins, Keigo Burnham, Phil Smith (1st weekend) then Adrian Moore and Steve Barby (2nd weekend) supported by Sally Hughes Sarah Hilditch (1st weekend) and Alice Hazell (2nd weekend) in the second team.

The Sussex 3rd Team consisted of Daniel Pound, Fraser Kent and Michael Robinson (1st weekend), Owen Brown and Richard Hazell (2nd weekend) supported by Jodie Morris (Ist weekend only because of conflicting Junior matches).  

Obviously the team changed as can be seen over both weekends - a great result for Sussex 2 who may yet be promoted (they came behind Surrey 2 marginally) and some great individual performances throughout and also a great team spirit from both teams. For next season we can hopefully offer to organise a venue closer in Sussex which may allow us to get a stronger team/more players out.
