Sussex Sharks VI: Champion's Parade

10 Jul 2024

Record-Breaking Sussex Sharks VI Parade T20 Trophy 

Last week T20 champions, the Visually Impaired Sussex Sharks, were special guests of honour at The 1st Central County Ground for the T20 Blast fixture between the Sharks and Glamorgan, where they paraded their 2023 BCEW T20 trophy in front of the home fans at Hove.

The players of the cup-winning squad were welcomed onto the pitch with warm applause from the Sussex faithful, as they returned to the venue where they lifted the trophy in May, in a rescheduled final from 2023.

That match was the second of two disability cricket fixtures held at The 1st Central County Ground, a first for any County across the country and was also preceded by DIScoverABILITY Day on the Friday, the Sussex Cricket Foundation's flagship disability sport event.

It was a spectacular performance on the day from the Sussex Sharks VI, who cruised to a 226-run victory over fellow finalists Northants.

The trophy was the fourth in as many years for the Sussex Sharks VI, who lead the way across the country when it comes to success within the game. 

As well as parading the trophy, the playing squad were joined by sponsors, Webtrends Optimize and Sussex Men's Head Coach, Paul Farbrace for pictures at the dugouts.

Speaking on the team's success, Sussex Sharks VI player, Dan Field said: "It was a huge honour to win the trophy at The 1st Central County Ground.

"Sussex are the only County in the country that put so much effort into not just hosting the games, but just the way the team are treated, the access to the changing rooms and the full experience. 

"There was a fantastic ground, we played on a professional wicket and to win on the day was lovely!"
