Inner London School Competition - Year 5 & 6
As part of the Surrey Crickets extensive schools competition programme, we would like to invite you to participate in the above competition. Our aim is to continue to provide quality competitions for schools to participate year on year. Last year’s participation was extra special with 40 schools from Lambeth, Wandsworth and Southwark entering the competition. This year we hope to achieve those same high levels, if not more. Surrey Cricket organise tournaments in line with the ECB competition framework. Competitions are an ideal way to give children the confidence and opportunity to express their skills learnt whilst encouraging team participation and match play awareness.
The Maurice Fulcher Trophy is an indoor 8-a-side cricket competition (soft cricket ball) for years 5 and 6. . Please note that there will be a gender ratio split of 4 boys and 4 girls in each team, with the boys bowling to the boys and girls to the girls.
The Maurice Fulcher indoor cricket tournament, supported by Girdlers Livery has a long and distinguished association with Surrey Cricket and the Kia Oval as they have hosted the finals day for over 18 years. Girdlers provide valuable support to enable the competition to run year on year. Maurice Fulcher had a close affinity with the Greater London Authority and when this was disbanded the Maurice Fulcher Trophy was born to provide a competitive grassroots indoor cricket tournament for the schools in the inner London Boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth.
The Tournaments qualifying week runs from Monday 1st to 5th December 2014. Two schools from each qualifying day go forward to the Finals Day on Friday 16th January 2015. Deadline for Applicications is the 21st November 2014, so please register your school now to enter the competition.
