Following in England Cricketer Laura Marsh’s Footsteps

Congratulations to Freddie Russell, Ted Burke (both Year 6), Al Wearne (Year 7), Daisy Gibb and Adam Howard (both Year 8) who have achieved such fantastic success in cricket.

Freddie, Ted, Al and Adam have all successfully completed their first-round trials for respective age groups in the Eastern Eagles district cricket team and are through to the next stage. Based on how they do with the winter programme, they will also have the opportunity to be selected for Spring and Summer programmes. Dependent on their performances throughout, the county coaches will pick what they feel are the best 12 players from all regional groups to represent the county.

Last year, Daisy played for the U12 Sussex team and trained with the squad weekly all year round. She is required to retrial each year to maintain her place in the squad and awaits the U13 squad trials this year. She has also played for Skippers U13 boy’s cricket team and continues to inspire more girls at Skippers to take up the sport.

We are very proud of the tremendous spirit and skill that they have shown in school and out. At Skippers, we have a history of strong cricket players with current England cricketer Laura Marsh as Skippers alumni. We hope to have more Skippers pupils emulate her success.
