Arundel is a great ground

Comment by Paul

Idyllic. I was there a few weeks ago for Sussex/Leics. Everything a cricket ground should be – quite a contrast from last night at the Ageas although it was good to see so many children there, and enjoyed a majestic innings from Vince.

Very nice photos there Dave, can remember going for a T20 first XI match some years back which they did well. The place exudes class, as does Arundel period.

I was at Arundel with Dave and I agree totally with his sentiment about the quietness. Lovely to watch a T20 game without the noise. Also nice to watch the dragonflies instead of pigeons!

We had a delightful day John didn’t we – even despite the final result.

I hope Sussex get promoted and we can maybe play them at Arundel in Div.1 next season. But one disappointing thing: on the last two days of the Sussex v Leics match the famous Arundel sausage rolls weren’t available!

Comment by Ian White

I’m not sure the sausage rolls hav’n’t gone permanently?

However, the good news, for the energetic!, is that Pallant of Arundel, at the bottom of the hill have an identically excellent version (so similiar I asked if they’d supplied they used to supply the cricket, but they said not).

Sadly none yesterday – just bacon baps – 2nd XI!?

Sausage rolls were available yesterday – you just had to pick your moment.

Went down very well with some tomato sauce.

I was able to watch the first 2 matches at Arundel but went back to the Ageas Bowl as I wanted to watch Calvin Dickinson make his debut, the atmosphere could not have been anymore different but I did enjoy both within their context.
