Three Hastings Priory cricketers are in the Sussex team for a three-day MCC University Match.
Harry Finch, Matt Machan and Kirk Wernars are part of the side taking on Leeds/Bradford MCCU at Weetwood Playing Fields starting today (Tuesday).
The game represents a chance for some of the younger players on Sussex’s books to impress, including first class debuts for 17-year-old Academy prospects Finch and Callum Jackson.
Only three members of the squad have played for Sussex so far this season in the LV=County Championship. The rest of the squad are yet to feature in the first team in 2012.
Former Bexhill cricketer Andrew Hodd is also in the line-up. Play is now underway after the start of the match was delayed due to rain with Sussex in the field.
Sussex squad: WA Adkin, WAT Beer, BC Brown, HZ Finch, Naveed Arif Gondal, LJ Hatchett, AJ Hodd, CF Jackson, CJ Liddle, MW Machan, KO Wernars.
