Cricketers eye first win

Eastbourne Cricket Club will need to put last weekend’s thumping defeat behind them as they travel to Worthing still looking for a win this season.

Worthing picked up their first victory of the campaign last Saturday, leaving Eastbourne as the only team in the 1st XL Premier Division yet to record a single win.

Last weekend, the Saffron’s outfit were beaten comprehensively by league leaders Hastings and St Leonards Priory as they were all bowled out for just 85.

The deafeat leaves Eastbourne struggling at the bottom of the table following three draws and three defeats.

Despite this, captain Mark Tomsett has insisted some encouraging performances in past weeks have ensured team spirit and confidence is still high heading into the clash with Worthing this weekend.
