First ever LTDCC tournament outside of London held
The first ever Lord’s Taverners disability cricket competition outside of London took place at the College of Richard Collyer in Horsham, Sussex on Thursday 14 December. Over 20 young people with disabilities competed in four teams in the competition, which was run as a six-a-side Kwick cricket round robin tournament, where every team played against each other. It ended in a three-way tie between teams from Lewes, Eastbourne and Horsham. This is the first of four rounds of competition, with the points earned here being carried for the next round in March. The aim is to build on the success of this initial tournament and set up a county wide league in Sussex.
The tournament is one of the outcomes of the national expansion of the disability cricket programme in 2017. As a result of this expansion, the programme is now available for young people in Sussex, Norfolk, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire, Warwicshire & Lancashire as well as in London.
