Cuckfield were too strong for Burgess Hill despite another good knock by Jack Simpson. He made 55 of his side’s 117-9 before Cuckfield completed a five-wicket win.

Haywards Heath were always in the driving seat against Keymer & Hassocks.

Opener Sam Reading was the sixth and last man out for 59, brilliantly caught by young Connal Bartlett, as Heath set a target of 148-6. Jonny Phelps made 23, Charlie Gold 22 and 23 came in wides.

Andy Westgate took 2-22 and Patrick Corrigan bowled without any luck for 0-25 in his four overs.

Tom Fairfax then followed up his 2-37 with 51 and added 57 for the second wicket with Joe Isted (21) but his side were always behind the clock as they finished on 127-8. Callum Smith took 3-40.

Danny Alderman plundered an unbeaten 103 as Three Bridges (164-3) comfortably accounted for Lindfield (121-9), while Bexhill’s 162-8 was just enough against St James’s Montefiore despite 63 from Anthony Alexander.
