Roffey Cricket Club won the Sussex Premier League title for the first time in their history after beating reigning champions Preston Nomads in a top of the table clash.

Mike Norris scored 102 and Kuldeep Rawat made 47 not out in a fine team effort.

Skipper Josh Fleming said: “It’s a proud day for the club. We came up through the smaller leagues 12-15 years ago got into the Premier Division four years ago and won it this year. It just seems to be one of those seasons where everything has gone well. Following any game we didn’t win we have gone back and won the next game.

“I’d like to thank the whole committee for their hard work in keeping the club running.”
