Girls U15 Plymouth Indoor Cricket Fixtures

Eight of our students travelled to Hele’s School on Monday 9th May to take part in the Girls U15 Indoor Cricket League. The overall winners of the 8 over games were to progress onto level 3 county matches.

The team can be seen in the photo below: The other teams that were entered into the tournament were Hele’s School, Plymouth Studio School and Devonport High School for Girls.

It was not until the second game that the girls really played with confidence in the end narrowly losing out to Plymouth Studio School by just 4 runs!

Our last game saw us take on a strong Hele’s team with some excellent batting from both teams. Lauren Ranford and Alicia Hatrey both scoring well as the opening batsmen. Unfortunately what looked a like a comfortable victory was snatched from the girls when in the last over Hele’s produced some excellent stroke play to win by 3 runs.

The girls are keen to continue training on Wednesdays after school and want to increase their knowledge and understanding of the game to hopefully do well in next year’s competition.
