The first season with Gardner and Scardifield sponsorship of Horsham CC has been very beneficial to all.
Our involvement helped to secure the services of Jofra Archer as the overseas player. Jofra made an immediate impact with both ball and bat, so much so that he has been contracted by Sussex to play for them! Horsham had to release a number of their outstanding talent to the county side this season which meant that their division leading start couldn't be maintained and also had a knock on effect with the Seconds. Finishing 4th was therefore a good performance if not totally satisfactory.
The demolition of Middleton in the final of the Gray-Nicolls T20, staged at the County Ground, demonstrated what was possible when all the heavy-guns were available. Middleton had done very well to get to the final but Horsham were too strong.
Finally the Lashings Charity match was very well attended and a great day was had by all. Our table was attended by Ex-England spinner, Monty Panesar.
