Cricket rivals Goring and Findon are set to meet for a Sussex League Division 4 encounter on Saturday.

League leaders Goring moved a step closer to being crowned champions with a win over Hastings & St Leonards Priory’s 2nd XI, the only match in the division to be completed.

Findon, who were celebrating their 150th anniversary over the weekend, endured a frustrating Saturday afternoon as their home clash with Horsham’s 2nd XI was abandoned in the wet weather.

A win for Alex Maynard’s side now leaves them needing to win four of their final six matches to see them crowned champions.

Goring were winners in the reverse fixture earlier in the season and Maynard is all too aware of the dangers Findon possess.

He said: “Another game comes around this weekend, this time against Findon.

“Nothing will change from our viewpoint – I want another good performance.

“We know from years gone by how good Findon really are, so we’ll be looking to be at our best in this one.”
