Exciting times for girls' cricket at Seaford.



Girls’ cricket at Seaford College is going from strength to strength this year, typified by the recent achievements of Mollie Adams (Year 10) and Lottie Curling (Year 9).

Natalie Miller, Assistant Director of Sport and Head of Girls’ Cricket, said that these were exciting times for the sport at Seaford, with the huge growth in facilities and the emergence of talented female cricketers. Natalie described Mollie and Lottie as role models for their year groups.

Over the winter, Mollie and Lottie were chosen, along with nine other girls from across Sussex, to take part in the prestigious Sussex Performance Programme for the county’s most promising cricketers.

Already part of the Sussex Cricket Pathway, the girls are now also playing in the boys’ teams at Seaford. “This is a first for us, and it’s really helped to develop their own game,” said Natalie.

Mollie Adams said: “All the professional female cricketers have played boys’ cricket. With the bowling coming at you a bit faster, it really pushes and challenges you.”

Natalie said that she had never seen anyone train so hard as Mollie away from the nets and matches. She called Lottie “an absolutely outstanding bowler”.

She added that the Seaford U14 and U15 girls did really well indoors over the winter, and made it through to the ECB regional finals. “It’s great for the girls to be able to play at a really top-class level,” said Natalie.
