As a past captain of Eastbourne Cricket Club, I would like to congratulate Jacob Smith and his 1st X1 side on winning eight of their last 10 matches to finish second in the Sussex Premier League.
The team was an ideal mix of the experienced and the youthful; indeed during July and August up to four of the players were of school age which bodes well for the future.
Praise is also due to the club chairman, Ian Fletcher-Price, and his committee for their initiatives which include bringing county cricket back to The Saffrons. A successful all-round season.
