The Sussex County Cricket Club

In the excitement of the Seagulls' promotion and the completion of its new stadium it shouldn't be forgotten that the City is home to the oldest County Cricket side in the country and that its home ground at Hove, the PROBIZ, has just been given a splendid revamp in time for the coming season.

The above photo shows the new stand on the left with the dark blue seats spelling out 'SHARKS', the name of the limited overs team; in the foreground are the fine new hospitality tents.


  1. Sumer is icumen in,
    Lhude sing cuccu!
    Groweþ sed and bloweþ med

  2. Thank you for that Marginalia. That's raised the tone a bit ;) What's that sideways omega?

  3. It all roughly translates into

    Summer is a coming in

    The cuckoo loudly sings

    Seeds groweth, meadows bloweth.

    The "þ" is Old/Middle English letter thorn replaced by "th".

    Fascinating what you can learn from Google!

  4. Thank you kindly for that:)
    It was also very clever of you to find it on your keyboard. I'm still looking for a diaresis!

  5. I have a Chaucerian keyboard and am operating on Piers Ploughman software.
