Trophy for Glynde

Glynde, with the score of 249 for seven wickets declared, defeated East Dean (50 runs) in a Cuckmere Valley League match on Saturday. Glynde have lost only one league fixture, and they take the league championship trophy back to the village for the first time since 1928.

Glynde were in top form although, batting first, their opening was bad enough to shatter their hopes. E Turner, who scored 120 not out, turned the tide, for his side were two wickets down for five runs when e went in. Then H Newham, eighth batsman, copied his example and hit 96 before being bowled by Haffenden. Turner's grand innings included seven 6's and it is a record score on the Glynde recreation ground. The Glynde batsmen, although they made victory almost certain, did not keep all the honours for themselves, however. It was A Holding who was chiefly responsible for keeping the visitors' score as low as 50. He gave them little chance of scoring, and took the remarkable number of six wickets for four runs.
