This year as part of the Lady Taverner’s Sussex Cricket League, Warden Park finished a tough group in 3rd Position.

Despite having a fantastic year which showcased some brilliant Cricket. Warden Parks first game was against Steynning Grammar School, a strong victory for park with a result of 74 - 40 off 16 overs.

The next game was against our toughest competition Oathall, it came down to the last over, with us needing 8 runs off 3 balls, but it wasn’t to be, and Oathall won 117-109. It was a comfortable victory against Cardinal Newman, with some fantastic batting from Arian Jones and Connie Rutter, we won 183 - 85.

Against Portslade our bowling was on top form, in particular Arian Jones, Alice Lindfield and Lucy Woodhams each taking two wickets. We got them all out after 10 overs with a score of 54 - 74, beating their batting score after just 5 overs and playing on for 3 more overs.

It was disappointing that our game against Hurstpierpoint College was suspended after a torrential downpour, this meant that we took a draw. Overall our batting, fielding and bowling were all fantastic, the team has great potential, and should be very proud of their success this year!!
