Can after a fantastic day of cricket, West Byfleet met St Mary's in the final.

St Mary's batted first and scored 84-2, with West Byfleet all out for 63 in response.

And St Mary's coach Suzie Keller said it was a great achievement for the school, having progressed from a district round that featured teams from Reigate Priory, Banstead and St Joseph's.

She said that cricket has been a developing sport in the school, but that it had taken off this year with the combination of hard work and some talented young players.

She said: "The boys have trained extremely hard to get to this final. A few weeks ago they came county runners up in the Kwik Cricket, so that makes this victory extra sweet.

"I am so proud of each of them, it rounds off a great sporting year for our school."
