CURRENT MATCH: Sussex CCC vs Middlesex
Under-17 girls reach national one-day finals

Sussex have qualified for the Royal London Under-17 Girls One-Day Finals that take place at Grantham CC next week.

The team will face either Staffordshire, Warwickshire or Wales in the semi-final on Thursday 22nd August with the aim of progressing to the final the following day.

Coached by Ian Cox, the team won Group 3 of the U17 Division A winning six of their eight matches in a strong pool that also contained Essex, Kent, Surrey & Hampshire.

Cox said: “The girls have shown great resilience this year having lost the first game of the campaign. To come back and win all their remaining games [one fixture was abandoned due to rain] to make it through is a tremendous effort and one that will stand them in good stead for the finals.”

This marks the seventh occasion in eleven seasons that Sussex have reached the semi-final stage of the competition. They were crowned champions in each of 2013. 2014 and 2015; were runners up in 2009 and finished third in 2010 and 2017.
