Easy in retrospect to look at clubs and societies such as Nuthurst CC making plans for a summer that would be turned upside down as war started.

“A general meeting of Nuthurst Cricket Club was held in the Church Hall, Mannings Heath, on Tuesday, the Rev W. Elwell and a goodly numbers of members beibng present.

“The Secretary announced that, with the exception of the Saturday in Horsham cricket Week, matches had been settled for the other Saturdays throughout the season, also that whole day games would probably be fixed for Whit Monday and August Bank Holiday.”
