“We hope the local community can join us for the evening and we look forward to seeing everyone next Thursday night from 5pm.”

Gary Honeysett from Haywards Heath CC added: “We’re delighted to have been invited to play this T20 match at Burgess Hill CC and look forward to locking horns with our neighbours again.

“We’ll be sending over a strong side so it should be a great evening’s entertainment with some quality cricket and as always, played in the right spirit.”
