Surrey Captain joins Cranleigh

Posted on 19th Apr 2021 in School News, Sport

Cranleigh School is delighted to welcome Miss Hannah Jones to the cricket coaching team.

Hannah is currently the captain of the Surrey women’s cricket team and one of the youngest qualified female coaches in the country. As well as captaining Surrey, she will also be taking part in the inaugural Hundred competition this year as part of the London Spirit.

Mr Alex Forsdike, Master in Charge of Cricket at Cranleigh School, said: "With the expansion of girls’ cricket throughout the school Hannah's experience and expertise will be invaluable to support coaches as well as inspire both boys and girls to improve their skills."

An off-spinning allrounder by trade, Cranleigh looks forward to her taking a leading role in developing cricket across the School.

In the wider community, she will be starting an MCCF state school girls’ cricket academy this summer together with Mr Stuart Welch, Director of Cricket at Cranleigh.
