Cricket (Girls)

Girls Cricket 1st XI v Cranleigh

Member of staff i/c: Mr M Smethurst

The cricket programme for girls is one of the most comprehensive in the country and training takes place throughout the Michaelmas and Lent terms. During the Sumer term the 1st XI play fixtures against The MCC Women and a number school boys' teams, while the best girls have the option to play in the Brighton College boys' sides.

In recent years The College has produced a number of international and county cricketers; the 2013 Ashes winning side included former pupils Sarah Taylor (2012 T20 Player World of the year), Holly Colvin and Laura Marsh, while Clare Connor MBE is the current Head of Women's Cricket in England. Freya Davies is on the England Women's Cricket Academy and in the Southern Vipers WSL squad while current U6th Nancy Harman is in the Sussex Academy Programme.

The girls U15s won the School Sport Magazine National Twenty20 competition in 2014 and 2015.

In addition to the hard ball cricket programme, the U15 and U13 teams compete in the Lady Taverners Indoor Tournament which they won in 2003, 2004, 2012 and 2013.

For those girls who are interested in taking their cricket to the highest level the college offers the Clare Connor Cricket Scholarship.
