First XI – had a wonderful win over high flying Crawley Eagles. Batting first was a struggle but thanks to some lower order runs they reached 162 all out. Peter Billinghay then took a match winning 6-30 to help Hill to an 18 run victory. Report..

Second XI – a superb 122 not out from Akeem Ifill helped Hill to a six wicket win over table toppers Haywards Heath. Heath scored 232-6, Bobby Barnes taking 4-57. In reply Curly Pummell and Ben Churchyard put on 52 for the first wicket, Teddy going on to score 50, laying the foundations for Akeem to bat Hill to their fifth consecutive win. Report
Third XI – took on Horsted Keynes 1st XI on Saturday and came away with a memorable win, just their second of the season. Horsted batted first scoring 229-6 declared in only 43 overs. Peter Murphy taking 3-42. Makeshift opener Tom McCreadie then laid waste to the Horsted bowling scoring a career best 74 not out alongside Paul Elphick who scored 71 not out himself getting Hill over the line inside 39 overs. Report.

Fourth XI – lost to a very strong Bolney 2nd XI. Bolney struck 212-2, Tristan Hepburn and Joe Hartley with the wickets. Joe then joint top scored with James Heath, both scoring 14 as Hill were bowled out for 88.

Womens XI – hosted Guernsey Ladies in their first ever UK tour at the weekend. Batting first, Guernsey scored 120-5, Katie Read taking two wickets and Emily Goss, Emily Hodgkinson and Charley Hepburn picking up one each. In reply, Hill scored 93 fo-44, Charley top scoring with 25 retired not out, Emily Hodgkinson 20, Izzy Deamer 18 and Jodie Johanson 15 not out. A great effort from our very young ladies side, great to see so many of our younger players playing and a big thank you to Guernsey Ladies for a well contested and enjoyable match.

Sunday Select – beat Scaynes Hill by two wickets at the weekend. Set 240 to win, Hill chased down inside 37 overs with Lewis Mamoany scoring 50 and Charlie Punter 43.
