The Maurice Fulcher Trophy is an indoor 8-a-side cricket competition (soft cricket ball) for years 5 and 6. A copy of the rules is enclosed for your information. 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 20 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.
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.
