Also rejoining us the playing staff this year were six others. Jon Denton played at Bolney in 2016 and in 2017 after playing one game for us at the start of 2016. He has returned to the fold to play 13 matches last term. Mhairi-Ann (Mars) Hill didn’t play in 2017 but returned this year for the Women’s team. James Bailey played his first game since 2015 in the 3rd XI defeat to Ram in August. Will Hasler did likewise when he took the field at Petworth and West Hoathly for the Vets. David Hardistyalso hadn’t played since 2015 when he played at Petworth whilst John Roomplayed in 2016 and returned to play at Petworth this year.
In addition, several other veterans like Steve Tuhey, Martin Glover and Greg Brown played their first games for us for a long time.

The President has hung up his protector
Peter Jones and Neil North played this season but have both decided to retire. We thank them both for their commitment to the cause and in the President’s case, he stopped playing after the Sunday game at Petworth just shy of his 75thbirthday. We hope they will continue to be a part of our club for many years.
And finally, as mentioned last time, Tim Jarvis has decided to leave us and return to his first club Brighton & Hove. Jarv always remained a Brighton boy at heart and there are many reasons why he has elected to play back at home next year. His best mate whom he played alongside for many years will also be returning from Ditchling to Nevill Road and several of the players that he loved playing with at Chilt have left – not least Tim Monday. In addition, his young family quite rightly takes up more of his time these days and he won’t be playing as much as he used to. Of course we’ll miss Zoe and the kids too plus Debbie and Chris who were all fixtures around the Rec in the last few years. Good luck to all of them and no doubt Corey Jarvis will be playing for Sussex one day soon too!
That’s it in terms of rubbish for this season. We’ll see you pre season for some more libellous nonsense. Hugh's doing a grand job with social media and keep up with Reuben and Charlie’s monthly blog on this website. Until the next time, we thank you for your company and will see some of you at the Xmas drinks for a few jars
