Helen Fagg (Community Cricket Officer, Women’s and Girls) and Georgina Knight (Under 17, Kent Performance Player) were there to present the trophies and medal for the competition. Helen said, “The Girls Kwik Cricket Competition is so important for the growth of the girls game as it allows more girls to get involved and to be part of a team. There was some fantastic cricket on show yesterday and the girls didn’t tire even in the scorching sun. We hope to see the girls continuing and improving with their cricket in years to come!”.
Adam Hodder (Community Cricket Officer, Adult Participation and Competitions) said “Congratulations to all those that took part in the competition at both a local district and county final level. To know that so many children are enjoying the game is wonderful and ensures that the game remains buoyant. I would like to thank all those involved in the organisation of the events including the event sponsors Countrystyle Recycling, festivals organisers, teachers, parents, umpires, Community Cricket Team, Kent Sport and Polo Farm.”
