Junior cricket joy for champs Polegate

In Polegate juniors only third full season, the club secured an unprecedented three titles with none of the junior teams finishing outside the top three in their respective divisions.

Leading the success were the unbeaten U11 soft ball team who achieved the league and Knock-out Cup double.

The U12’s hard ball eleven were also undefeated and won their league and progressed to their knock out cup final. They lost narrowly to Hastings Priory.

The U10’s and 14’s also surpassed expectations and had some excellent performances to show for all of their work on and off the pitch.

Three players appeared on the honours board across the county. The players success was also noted by Sussex with a number of juniors chosen for Sussex area training which could, in turn, lead to full county trials.

To celebrate the junior section are holding an awards day tomorrow (Saturday) at the Yew Tree Inn at Chalvington with a day of cricket, raffles/auction, awards ceremony and a BBQ.
