|Angmering Year 7 start cricket season with a bang!|
|Angmering convincingly beat a spirited and stubborn Shoreham Academy side by 38 runs on a pleasant afternoon at Angmering. After being put into bat, Jack Turner and Oli Hemsley gave Angmering a solid platform to work from, striking 22 and 25 (retired out) respectively. Captain Jack (sparrow) superbly led the side throughout the game and his batting was responsible and purposeful, always seeking out singles when needed. The innings was given further impetus by Lucas Stubbs who struck a brutal 23 not out from just 15 balls and he was ably supported by Charlie Heasman (4not out). Angmering had set Shoreham a daunting 87 to win in just 12 overs.
The Angmering bowling attack soon set about getting 10 Shoreham wickets. It was a comprehensive effort by the entire bowling unit. Wickets tumbled on a regular basis, including 2 run outs and a stumping that showed off excellent work from wicket keeper Alfie Lister. Strike bowler Lucas Stubbs bagged a brace of wickets along with Leesun Donaldson, 3 from Oli Hemsley and a debut wicket for seamer Dean Rosin. Scott Bowden, Charlie Heasman and Lewis Slaughter also showed what they can offer with a solid set of overs between them. This saw Shoreham bowled out in the final over for 46 runs with the top score being the extras Angmering gave away (something to work on for the next game). Notable fielding performances also from Reece Crittall and Toby Hother contributed to an outstanding overall team performance. Leading from the front was essential and Jack Turner did that superbly. All 11 players contributed and should be proud of the start they have made this season.
Next Game: The Weald (Home) -Thursday 23rd May @ 3.30pm.

|Angmering dominate local school rugby|
|The year 11 and 8 Rugby teams at both achieved a notable double winning both the district league and district tournaments. Year 11 remained unbeaten and managed to beat nearest opponents Steyning Grammar school by 50 points to win the league final and totally dominated the district tournament.
Year 8s biggest rivals were St.Andrew’s, Worthing whom they beat 27-17 in the league final and 14-10 in the tournament final in two very hard fought games.
Not to be outdone the year 7 team won their district league final 40-20 against Rydon Community College, 40-20 and reached the semi final of the county cup. The year 10 team also chipped in by claiming the runners up spot in the tournament.
