The Sussex Cricket League have revealed how each division will look for our local teams for the 2020 season.

Reigning Premier Division champions Roffey will be looking for their sixth title in seven years.

Trying to stop the Boars from retaining their crown are Brighton & Hove, Three Bridges, Middleton, Preston Nomads, Eastbourne, Cuckfield and promoted sides Hastings & St Leonards and Haywards Heath.

Horsham have some mouthwatering derbies to look forward to following relegation to Division 2 for the first time ever.

The Lions will take on neighbours Billingshurst and promoted Roffey 2nds as they look to return to the Premier Division at the first time of asking.

Mayfield, Bognor Regis, St James Montefiore, Lindfield, Chichester Priory, Burgess Hill and Preston Nomads 2nds complete the second tier.
