Horsham will be looking to build on two wins in cup matches when they open their Sussex Premier League campaign this Saturday.

Horsham missed out on the title last season after being in contention for much of the summer, eventually finishing third.

New captain Sam Attfield has taken over from Craig Gallagher, who remains in the team, while new overseas fast bowler Travis Muller impressed in their narrow T20 win over Slinfold last Saturday.

They travel to Bexhill, while neighbours Roffey are at home to Eastbourne, looking to build on their ECB National Club Championships win over Ashtead on Sunday.

Roffey will be boosted by the arrival of Indian seamer Kuldeet Rawat, who was playing for Pulborough last season.

In Division 2, newly promoted Billingshurst travel to St James Montefiore, while in Division 3 Pulborough are away to Crawley Eagles.

In Division 4, Slinfold host Hellingly, Steyning are at home to Portslade while Wisborough Green also begin at home against Henfield.
