Skipper plays down clash with leaders


Horsham captain Sam Attfield has played down any significant importance on their away clash with Premier Division leaders Preston Nomads on Saturday.

The Sussex League’s reigning champions are currently 22 points clear of fifth-place Horsham in an extremely tight table.

Just 31 points separate the top seven teams in a title race that looks set to go down to the wire.

Horsham go into the match on the back of an eight-wicket win over basement side Hastings.

Attfield, however, believes this weekend’s clash is no more important than any other that his side will face.

He said: “ We’ll take every game as it comes and cannot put too much emphasis on any game over another. We will go into every game trying to take as many points as possible.”

Last week’s leaders Roffey, who dropped to third after a draw with Brighton & Hove, host Hastings on Saturday.
