Sussex have qualified for the finals of the Royal London ECB Girls Under-17 County Cup next week.

Sussex topped a South East group containing Essex, Hampshire, Kent and Surrey after winning six of their eight 45-over matches.

The finals will be held at Bishop’s Storford CC, Herfordshire on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st August. 

Staffordshire, Wales and defending champions Yorkshire are the other sides involved.

Semi-finals take place on the Wednesday, with Sussex taking on Staffordshire.

The winners of that match and the meeting between Wales and Yorkshire will contest Thursday’s final, with the losers taking part in a third-place play off on the same day. 

A presentation of the trophy, medals and player mementoes will take place after Thursday’s matches at around 5.15pm.  

Ahead of the finals, Sussex Under-17 Girls coach, Ian Cox said: "The girls have performed fantastically well this summer with a combination of individual skill and a brilliant team ethic which has seen them improve noticeably in all areas of the game.

 "All the girls have contributed but Ella Wadey and Ariana Dowse with the bat and Ellie Robinson's seam bowling have been outstanding. 

"The squad includes a number of girls from both our U-15 and U-14 age groups which obviously bodes well for the future of the women and girls game in Sussex."
