CRAIG Gallagher admits he could not be happier with the way Horsham have started this season after Saturday’s seven wicket thrashing of Chichester

Strike bowlers Matt Henry and Dveon Endersby shared eight wickets as Horsham rattled Chichester out for 92, and Gallagher’s men comfortably reached their target in reply.

Horsham went second in the Sussex Premier League table thanks to that result, and a draw between early pacesetters Preston Nomads and Hastings. And after his concerns about bowling options during the winter have not been realised, Gallagher is a happy man.

“The boys put it in the right areas,” he said. “It (the pitch) was a bit green but I think we just bowled well and it got into their heads a little bit.

“Once they got three down nobody came to rough it out.

“Having lost four players during the winter, Dev (Endersby) has been a revelation with his bowling and Matt has been excellent up top, Sam (Cushing) has done well at first change and not going for many runs. I could not be happier, it is a fantastic start to the season, the spirit is really good and the dressing room is good.”
