Sussex Announce Plans For Horsham Cricket Festival

Following the huge success of the Horsham Cricket Festival last year and the victory over Durham in the County Championship that they enjoyed, Sussex County Cricket Club are pleased to announce that they will return to the Horsham ground this summer for two exciting fixtures. The dates for your diary are Wednesday 30 July, Thursday 31 July, Friday 1 August, Saturday 2 August for Sussex v Somerset at 11.00. Sunday 3 August for Sussex v Worcestershire at 13.00, which is a Pro40 game.

Having made possible the return of the Horsham Cricket Festival with their match sponsorship last year, EMCEL Filters are delighted to announce that they will again be match sponsors for “The EMCEL Filters Horsham Festival of Cricket.”

EMCEL Filters Managing Director, Chris Marshall commented: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to support Sussex CCC in bringing County Cricket back to the beautiful Horsham ground again this year.”

The 2007 event was considered by the Company to be a huge success due, in no small part, to the superb catering and hospitality arrangements laid on by the Sussex CCC in-house catering team.

Chief Executive at SCCC, Gus Mackay said: “We sincerely look forward to returning to the Horsham ground in 2008, as SCCC continues to support local grounds and clubs around the county.”
