The Old Cranleighan Cricket Club have once again made it through to the final of the prestigious Cricketers Cup competition, held each year between England’s leading independent schools. The OCCC beat the Shrewsbury Saracens in an extraordinary manner, blasting them out for 33 thanks to the bowling performance of the season by OC captain Matt Crump – returning figures of 6 for 7. The final result was Shrewsbury Saracens 33, Old Cranleighans 228-9*.
The Old Cranleighans will be playing the Old Tonbridgians in the final, after the latter beat Charterhouse in a much more closely fought match, ending with Charterhouse Friars 216-9, Old Tonbridgians 227-9*.
