Copthorne Prep School wins the Bank Holiday Cup back from Cottesmore School after five years!
On a glorious June afternoon, our 1st Cricket Team played a 20 over game against our old adversaries from Pease Pottage.
The Cup competition has been in existence for over 50 years, starting when both schools were full boarding schools. The fixture used to be a full game but has been changed to a limited over match in order to have a winner. Cottesmore batted first and due to some excellent bowling were restricted to a relatively modest 64. The Copthorne batsmen were able to chase down the total with some big hitting resulting in a number of boundaries. The games was played in an excellent spirit, was a pleasure to watch and even had the right result! Roll on next season and attempting to retain it!
