The School is pleased to hear of the sporting success of one of our recent girl leavers. Former girls’ cricket captain Chloe Allison (South ’07-’12) played for Cambridge against Oxford in the Varsity Twenty/Twenty match at Fenner’s on Thursday 20th June.
She opened the innings for the University, top-scored with 30 not out, and carried her bat through the innings. She would also have played in the full Varsity match at Lord’s the previous Saturday but had already committed herself to playing first clarinet in a concert of the Cambridge University Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Stephen Cleobury, who is remembered at Cranleigh as the guest who opened the Merriman Music School). Chloe received the award for most promising “fresher” in the Cambridge team and is hoping that next year she will be able to play at Lord’s and win her full Blue.
