Sussex under 17 Girls Shortlisted for Best Sports Team Award

The Sussex under 17 squad from 2013 are up for another award after winning the County Championship and the National T20 competition last year.
The team have been nominated and shortlisted for the Best Sports Team Award at the forthcoming Sussex Awards. These awards have been designed to celebrate what makes this such a great county to live and work in. There are eleven awards that cover all aspects of life in the area including arts, business and sport.
The Sussex under 17s won the Young team of the year award at last year’s Sussex sports awards to top off a great season.
Sussex Women & Girls Director of Cricket, Charlotte Burton Said, “The under 17 side had a fantastic year last year winning the Championship and T20 and it is great that the side are still being recognised for their achievements. The awards night falls on the same time as the current side will be involved in the T20 competition, but those who are not out of age group will represent the team at the awards evening.”
The Sussex Awards are held on Friday 30th May at The Hilton Brighton Metropole starting at 7pm.

Nine Sussex Players Selected for EWDP U19 Week 2013

 In the past Sussex have produced some very talented young cricketers to go on and play at the highest level, such as Sarah Taylor and Holly Colvin who started their career at junior county cricket before working with Keith Greenfield on the Academy and then being selected for England. Again Sussex continue to produce some more talented cricketers to follow in Sarah & Holly’s footsteps, with 9 players selected for the England Women’s Development Programme under 19 week, next week, held at Wellington College.
The EWDP week (formally the Junior super 4’s), see’s the best 36 U19 players from around the Country play in three teams where they will play against one another and a boys county side over three days in 50 over and T20 format. The nine Sussex players selected are,
Georgia Adams, Izzy Collis, Freya Davies, Abi Freeborn, Chiara Green, Izi Noakes, Sophie Parnell, Paige Scholfield and Rebecca Silk (reserve).
This will be Adams, Green, Noakes and Parnell’s final year in the EWDP U19s and they will be looking for a place in the England Academy during the winter. Sussex also produced three Under 15s, who were recently selected to take part in the EWDP U15 week, Ellen Burt, Anna Harris and Tara Norris.
Sussex Women’s Director of Cricket, Charlotte Burton said, “It is great that at Sussex we are still able to produce high quality and a good number of players at England level. It is all down to the hard work by the girls during the winter and the summer and their desire to play at the highest level. It is vitally important that we keep producing a good standard of players not just for England but to keep us as one of the leading Counties in the Country as well as helping the girls reach their dream.
