Horsham 5 defeat Haywards Heath 3

Roger Waddingham reports on last Tuesday's match between Horsham 5 and St Francis & Haywards Heath 3

Horsham 1 on top against Hastings 1

Horsham 1 are poised to defeat Hastings 1 following a successful performance last Tuesday. The score was 2-1 on the night, with a result not agreed in the games Mansson - Howell and Almond - Higgs.
