Both have now qualified for the Sussex squad, along with their club-mate Oscar De Lacy (pictured in the centre) and will be training with them every month in Crawley, as well as at their permanent dojo at Chichester’s New Park Centre.

They will hopefully go on to represent the county later this month if selected for the inter-counties championship.

Club chairman Trevor Mossop said: “We are incredibly proud of their commitment and this achievement.”
