Mayfield Named Top School for Cricket for the Second Time

28 Mar 2022
Mayfield School News

Mayfield was named as one of The Cricketer magazine’s Top 20 Girl’s Cricketing Schools in the UK. This is the second year in a row that Mayfield was selected for this prestigious accolade, which is testament to the talent and commitment of the girls and their fantastic coach, former England international player, Miss Emily Starr. Entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching. 

Emily Starr, Mayfield’s Head of Cricket, who has represented England (Indoor) at U19 level and Northamptonshire County Cricket, said, "We’re delighted that the School has been recognised as one of the top 20 all-girls schools for cricket. Cricket was introduced as a major sport just three years ago and in that time we have established a comprehensive programme, supported by a significant investment in our facilities and infrastructure, and we have exciting plans to develop these even further. The girls have responded positively, with dedication and determination, and we have reached regional finals in the U13 and U15 age groups, and have girls in the Sussex team. This year we had planned our first international tour to Barbados, but due to the pandemic we had to postpone the trip – we’re now hoping to go in 2021/22 once guidelines allow this.”
