Newly promoted Billingshurst have made a good start to life in Division Two

Three of our local sides play their first competitive games of the new cricket season this weekend with Horsham, Roffey and Billingshurst all involved in the ECB National Club Championships on Sunday.

The trio are all in Group 11 of the knock-out competition, with Horsham hosting Surrey Premier League Sutton at Cricketfield Road and looking to do better then their First Round exit last year.

Roffey have good pedigree in the competition having done well in recent years and they host Ashtead, while at the same time newly promoted Division 2 side Billingshurst play Havant.

Next weekend sees the start of the Sussex Invitation League as well as the first round of the T20 Cup, which has thrown up some tasty local derbies.

Cricket previews will appear in the paper next week.
