Bognor CC’s poor run with the bat continued as they slumped to a 130-run home loss to Eastbourne at the Regis Oval.
Max Ashmore’s side never looked in the match after the visitors opted to bat first and posted 258 for 9 in their 45 overs.
In reply, Bognor failed to build any momentum and were eventually dismissed for 128, scoring less than half their opponents’ score.
That defeat leaves Bognor just above the drop zone in Sussex Division Two, after losing four of their first five matches.
Next up is a visit from Crawley-based Ifield tomorrow (12.30pm) with Ashmore knowing that his side must do better with the bat.
In fairness, his bowlers didn’t give his side much of a chance to chase down victory after Eastbourne’s Dan Wells (76) and Mark Tomsett (71) put on 127 for the third wicket.
Bognor’s Joe Ashmore (4 for 44) and Scott Bingham (4 for 44) were the pick of the home bowlers.
In reply, only Elliott Clarke (57) showed much resistance as just three of Bognor’s batters reached double figures.
