Findon 1st XI miss out on promotion on final game of season

Findon’s 1st XI were hoping for a draw between Goring  and Bexhill and a victory against Ifield to seal promotion to the top flight of Sussex cricket.

Unfortunately Bexhill battered Goring and Findon could only manage a draw against Ifield who posted a fine total of 246-6. In reply Findon managed 189-8 with Aussie Andrew Crosland scoring 68, his highest league score at Long Furlong, in his final game of his stint as overseas player.

These two results left Findon in fourth place with Eastbourne and Bexhill both getting promotion back to the Premier League, one year after relegation.

Findon should be pleased they took the season to the final game and will have a much more optimistic outlook for 2014.

Findon 2nd XI achieved promotion to the Sussex 2nd XI Premier League next year and will look forward to playing on the main pitches of the top Sussex clubs.

The 3rd XI who were in contention for promotion until the final few games of the season finished a creditable fourth place.

Findon CC 2nd XI promoted to Sussex League 2nd XI Premier Division

Due to Saturday’s abandonments involving Worthing 2nd XI, Findon 2nds were promoted to the Sussex League 2nd XI Premier Division.

With Worthing 2nds needing a victory, the bad weather helped Findon to open up a 35-point gap with just one game remaining.

Findon 2nds are now just 13 points behind division leaders Roffey before Findon’s final game away to Ifield.

“This is a fantastic achievement for Findon 2nds to reach the highest level possible in Sussex 2nd XI cricket,” said Chris Smith, 2nd XI captain. “For a small village club like Findon to be competing next season against the likes of Horsham, Preston Nomads and Hastings is epic.”

Findon 1st XI are also still in with a shout of promotion needing a win on Saturday at home to Ifield then hoping for a draw in  the Goring vs Bexhill match. Fingers crossed for James Iago and the 1st XI team!

Findon CC’s Crosland guests for Australia

Cro

Findon Cricket Club’s overseas player Andrew Crosland received a personal invitation from Australian national team coach Darren Lehman to help his country out during their recent match at Hove.

Crosland was used as a warm-up bowler for the Austrlian batsman on Tuesday morning prior to their game against Sussex.

Andrew said, “I thought it was a wind-up until I actually heard Darren Lehman on the phone. It was an amazing day, being so close to the Australian team. I also shared 12th man duties during the Australian innings with captain Michael Clarke. I also got to keep the Aussie kit which was a nice touch.”

Crosland is playing for Findon in the Sussex Cricket League and has currently scored 264 runs this season, almost all of them scored away from Findon’s home ground.

Despite rubbing shoulders with Australia’s finest, Crosland failed with the bat during Findon’s local derby against Goring on Saturay scoring just 1 run before edging to first slip.

See Crosland in action at Hove on this video clip…

Former FCC Club Captain makes appearance at Eastbourne

Former Findon CC Club Captain Denis Williams was a surprise supporter at Saturday’s 1st XI’s match on Saturday.

Denis, who was captain of Findon in the late 1960s, now lives next door to Eastbourne’s cricket ground at The Saffrons.

Before the game, Denis spoke with senior players John Rogers and Jason Nicholls about his time playing with the likes of Alan Harris, Malcolm Gill, David Nicholls and many other current FCC Life Members.

He then spoke with current Club Captain James Iago and former Chairman Mike Metters during the tea interval. Denis is pictured here during the 1960s sitting next to Frank Atton (in the black blazer). Also pictured here back row, second from the left, is our current President Johnny Spiers.
