The club have taken the bold step of signing overseas player Rehan Afridi from Pakistan in the wicketkeeper/mid order position. Rehan has a rich pedigree at First Class level in Pakistan and is a proven winner. The club say they are very excited to welcome him to Sussex.

There is already a buzz around the Spen Cama Memorial Ground, Fulking, after picking up pre-season wins against Weybridge, Sussex Uni and win in a one-run thriller against Reigate Priory.

The club said: "The Sussex Premier, Sussex T20 Cup and the ECB Club Cup are firmly in our sights! We are ready!"
