Roffey CC happy to ‘get noticed’

Roffey Cricket Club believe they are now considered an established Sussex Premier League side after a second successive fifth place finish.

A season hugley affected by the weather was rounded off by 92-run defeat at Eastbourne.

Put in, Eastbourne made 256-9 declared with skipper Mark Tomsett hitting 100 from 102 balls and Callum Jackson 82.

In reply Matt Davies top scored for Roffey with 32 as they were bowled out for 164.

Still it wasn’t enough to save Eastbourne from relegation alongside Bexhill, after the five points Worthing took against Chichester were just enough to keep them up.

Roffey president Peter Cheesman said: “The weather had a big say in our season so to finish fifth is a good achievement. We continue to hold our own and people are noticing Roffey Cricket Club more.”
