An afternoon of cricket took place at Bede’s School in the Girls U15 Indoor Cricket tournament featuring teams from Bede’s, Eastbourne College, Hurstpierpoint and Brighton College. Two semi-finals, a plate final and a nail biting final saw the Bede’s team beat Brighton College on the last ball of the match to claim victory. Ex Sussex player and Bede’s cricket coach Neil Lenham said, “The impressive display of girls cricketing abilities and talent in such an ideal indoor sports arena proved a great success with some outstanding cricketing performances throughout the all the matches.” Bede’s Director of Sport Andrew Hibbert said, “It was pleasing to see so many girls playing cricket to such a good standard and enjoying the competitive environment. I am sure that this tournament will be the catalyst for development of girls’ cricket at the school to complement the boys’ programme.”
