The Kent Finals for the Girls 'Chance to Compete' competition took place last week at the Mote Cricket Club in Maidstone, with both the Under 13s and Under 15s tournaments running side by side.
We had record numbers for a one day competition, thirteen school teams turning up for the U13 Competition and nine teams for the U15 Competition. The rained stayed away this year, allowing plenty of impressive cricket to take place, in a really healthy and sporting environment, so we congratulate all the players and teachers involved.
The U13 teams were split into two groups and played in a round robin format with the league finishing up as below. In the Sevenoaks/Hayes Finals Playoff it was Hayes who came out as County U13 winners.

Kent Cricket Community Officer, Helen Fagg, in attendance on the day said 'It's fantastic to see such a good standard of girls cricket and the number of schools we have interested in our competitions now’. It is getting to the stage that some schools are beginning to have a girls hardball cricket team and a girls softball cricket team which is fantastic progress”
Kent Cricket wish to extend their thanks to The Mote CC for hosting the finals days and we wish the schools competing in the Regional Stages of the Chance to Compete Competition the best of luck.
