September’s ‘On The Front Foot’ features an extended discussion between Tim, David and guest pundit Andy Tharp about the Ashes, county cricket, and the end of the local league season; while Surrey Slam organiser Matt Camp reports on this season’s expanded competitions, and plans to extend into Sussex for 2020.
Week 19 brings the Susy Cricket Season to a close. South Nutfield go to another Slam finals Day; the Llamas finish 2nd and Banstead 3rd in the Surrey Premiership; CCW are promoted as champions from Surrey D2, as are Outwood 2s from KCVL D6; but sadly, Merstham’s struggles end with a return to the Surrey County League next year.
With only the Surrey Championship and the Kent County Village League to be completed, week 18’s roundup unravels the final positions of our local clubs in the other leagues. Roffey, Horley 2s, CCW and South Nutfield are all champions. Horley 1s and Outwood 2s are promoted. Sadly there’s the odd relegation, too.
Week 16 sees South Nutfield crowned Surrey Downs Champions in spite of their first loss of the season – Horley 2s also suffer their first setback and still need just one bonus point to become division winners. Meanwhile in Sussex, Roffey clean up again in the Premiership in spite of East Grinstead’s late run.
