Horsham skipper delighted with draw against leaders

HORSHAM CC skipper Craig Gallagher was ecstatic after his side’s ‘winning draw’ at leaders Hastings in the Sussex Premier League on Saturday.

After posting 243-7, thanks to a half century from Kiwi Matt Henry, and a better than a run a ball 47 from Gallagher, Horsham restricted Hastings to 210-8 in reply, without landing a final blow.

Gallagher said: “I am looking at it as a winning draw, we did not expect to get a lot from that game.

“I think it always gives confidence if four second team players can come in and get a winning result against the league leaders.

“It gives us a huge amount of positive energy going forward.”
