Eagles crashed to their first defeat of the season when they were beaten by 41 runs at Haywards Heath.
Sussex Premier League Division 3
Haywards Heath 196-8
Crawley Eagles 155
The visitors won the toss and elected to field, Heath got off to a slow but steady start but a quick fire 38 from Tim Upchurch at the end of the innings helped the hosts get to 196-8 of 53 overs.
Anjum Zafar was the pick of the bowlers with 3-35 off his 15 overs.
Eagles’ reply started off badly as both openers were out with the score on 27, Callum Smith, Ollie Bailey and Jayden Wright all picked up a brace of wickets each to stop any meaningful partnerships developing.
As a result the visitors ended on 155 all out, well short of their target.
Only Fallah Uddin 34 not out provided any resistance.
