Cranleigh Girls Win U15 Surrey Cup
On Thursday 30th June 2022 Cranleigh School's U15 Girls' Cricket team won the Surrey Cup. Played at Kingston Grammar School, Cranleigh beat Alleyn's by seven wickets to raise the cup.
Having beaten St Catherine’s, St George’s Weybridge, Guildford High School and Epsom in the earlier rounds, Cranleigh School's Under 15 Girls travelled to Kingston Grammar School to play Alleyn’s in the Surrey Cup Final on Thursday 30th June.
Alleyn’s won the toss and elected to bat but soon found themselves in trouble against Cranleigh as Eloise D. and Caitlyn B. took early wickets to leave Alleyn’s 4-3. An excellent direct hit run out from Abby S. continued Cranleigh’s dominance before Cara M. was brought on to bowl, she ripped out the Alleyn’s middle order taking five wickets for six runs from her four overs.
Alleyn’s were eventually bowled out for 58. Cranleigh began their innings slowly but without losing early wickets, Grace C. then started to get going hitting a number of boundaries. Although she fell for 23 the girls cruised home to win the Surrey Cup by seven wickets.
Cranleigh's Head of Girls' Cricket, Mr Gareth Pritchard, said it was "a fantastic end to the season".
