Eastbourne 1 v Horsham 3 -- Friday 31 January


In awful weather conditions we made our Friday night excursion to Eastbourne,where we met highly graded opponents,who gave us a sound beating.
All games were still going after 2 hours – showing a valiant fighting spirit – but we were material down in every game.
Richard Moorhouse gained us our only score – shortly before Chris Heath finally resigned as time was called.
My thanks to all players, especially the drivers, who met driving wind and rain, hidden water deluges and road closures and diversions on the way home.
