Quarter Finals of Yorkshire Tea Village Cup hits Sussex this Sunday

The quarter-finals of the Yorkshire Tea Village Cup hit Sussex this Sunday.

Just a cricket ball throw away from the famous race track, Plumpton & East Chiltington will host Reed from Hertfordshire.

It’s new territory for the home side, who have lost twice to 2009 champs Glynde & Beddingham in the past two seasons.

But this year they exacted revenge when beating their local rivals in the Second Round on the way to winning the East Sussex region.

Reed will be hoping for better luck than their previous visit to Sussex, when they came unstuck in the Fifth Round against 2011 finalists Rottingdean.

This is the furthest the club has been in the competition, equalling their previous best effort in 1988. To progress to the semi-final, they will be relying heavily on the club’s three pairs of brothers – the Heslams, Tideys and Wards.

It’s bound to be an enthralling encounter between two sides dreaming of reaching Lord’s for the first time.

Play gets underway in Plumpton at 1pm this Sunday.
