Cricket

Old Brightonians Cricket took part in the inaugural Sussex Old Boys 20/20 Cup at Lancing College on 22 May 2011. Teams participating were Old Brightonians, Lancing Rovers, Old Eastbournians and Old Blues.

Our very own Matt Prior (R. 1995-00) will captain England in their first tour match in Australia tomorrow after Alastair Cook was ruled out.

Old Brightonians 103 for 3, lost to Oundle Rovers 104 for 3. Despite the drought of the early summer, the day of the first round of the Cricketer Cup dawned with rain, that wet sort of rain that continues all day. Undaunted by the wet conditions, eleven Old Brightonians travelled to Oundle for the fixture. It was decided by both teams that only a ten over match in the rain was possible, not ideal but a better alternative to replaying the game the following weekend.

On 21st June 2007 some of the world's most prolific International cricket stars competed against the college 1st X1 in the 2nd annual Lashings match on the Home Ground on a sun-soaked afternoon. It’s hard to imagine an event that can appeal to, and draw together, the generations of Old Brightonians, College staff, and current pupils in quite the same way that Clare Connor’s (W. 1989-94) annual cricket-fest does so successfully.
