UNDERDOGS Billingshurst are eagerly anticipating this Sunday’s Sussex T20 Cup Finals Day, so much so that one of their young stars is cutting short a family holiday just to feature.

Tim Weston is currently away in Madeira, but has booked an early flight to land back on these shores late on Saturday night so he can play the following day.

Division 3 (West) side Hurst have the daunting task of facing Premier Division Horsham in one semi, but after seeing off the likes of Three Bridges and Roffey to get there they go in with ‘nothing to lose.’

Player Scott Stratton said of Weston, a young left arm spinner: “Tim’s cutting his holiday short by four days to make it because he’s so keen to play.

“His bowling has really come on this year and he’s done really well in this competition already, taking four wickets in the last round against Roffey. He’s become a big asset with the ball.”

Speaking about their chances of another upset he said: “Getting to the finals is an achievement in itself and we’ve already taken a couple of Premier League scalps. So we’re going to enjoy ourselves and play freely. We’ve got nothing to lose.”

Preston Nomads and Hastings contest the other semi at Fulking, 12.15pm start.
