Weekend sport roundup

Both Uckfield United and Buxted ended their seasons with huge victories on Saturday.

Uckfield United beat Keymer and Hassocks 8-1, while champions Buxted beat AFC Acorns 9-2.

On the opening weekend of the new Sussex Cricket League season, Uckfield Anderida’s match at Linden Park’s third team was abandoned as a draw because of rain.

Buxted Park got their new campaign off to a winning start with a 50-run win at Crowhurst Park. Newick had a convincing 10-wicket win over Hellingly. And Nutley beat local rivals Blackboys by 32 runs.

There were defeats for Fletching, who lost by seven wickets at Crawley Down, and for Maresfield, who were beaten by 52 runs by Bells Yew Green’s second team.

Sussex’s county team went down to a heavy defeat yesterday in their latest Championship match, as they lost by an innings and 120 runs to Northamptonshire.
