Weekend Sporting roundup

A mixed bag this weekend!

Not for the first time this summer, rain severely disrupted the weekend’s local cricket programme, including Uckfield Anderida’s home clash with Linden Park’s third team, which was abandoned without a ball being bowled. The only game involving our main local teams to survive the weather was at Nutley, where the home side defeated local rivals Blackboys by four wickets.

In county cricket, Sussex fought back in the final session of the opening day yesterday in their latest Championship match against Kent at Canterbury.  Sussex were bowled out for 181, before reducing the home side to 69 for five at the close of play.

In football, AFC Uckfield Town’s pre-season friendly against Lewes at the Oaks was cancelled due to a potential Covid issue.
