On Thursday 30th June, Cranleigh School's U15 Girls' Cricket team won the Surrey Cup, beating Alleyn's by seven wickets.

Having beaten St Catherine's, St George's Weybridge, Guildford High School and Epsom in earlier rounds, the team travelled to Kingston Grammar School to play Alleyn's in the final.

Alleyn's won the toss and elected to bat but Cranleigh's 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, 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 hit a number of boundaries.

Although she fell for 23, the Cranleigh girls won by seven wickets.

Cranleigh's Head of Girls' Cricket, Gareth Pritchard, said it was "a fantastic end to the season".
