After entertaining the Sussex County Cricket Club crowd for several years mascot Sid the Shark will be getting some company.

For the past few weeks, primary school children from across the county have been designing a female friend to accompany Sid (and try to keep him under control!) on match days at The 1st Central County Ground.
