Eastbourne Cricket under-10s finished off an incredible season last Sunday by winning the Santander Cup at Hove County Ground.

Having won the Under 10s East Sussex League, Eastbourne went onto to win the East Area competition of The Santander Cup.

That match was held at Hellingly Cricket Ground in early August and it placed the side through to the Finals Day at Hove as the East Sussex champions.

The day was made up of two Leagues of four teams which were made up of the other Area champions.

After playing the pool games, they were runners up in group B. They went on to play North Area champions East Grinstead who had not lost a game.

In a very tight semi- final Eastbourne went on to win by two runs to face Fletching in the final, which they ended up winning quite comfortably by 22 runs.

The result saw Eastbourne claim the 2012 Santander Cup winners and county championship.

Coach Ian Bradley said, “After a disappointing season for the Eastbourne first team, it is nice to know the future looks bright for Eastbourne Cricket Club.”
