Lady Taverners Day 1 Thornton Cleveleys
Rainford Double Up!
Congratulations to Rainford Technology College from St Helens. Their U13’s and U15’s booked their places in this year's Lady Taveners County finals day.
The St Helens school had to overcome strong opposition from Blackpool, Lytham and Preston at today’s competition held at Thornton Cleveleys.
Eleanor Threldlkeld and Rebecca Cline started for Rainford’s U15’s, Eleanor retired in all 3 games unbeaten and Rebecca bowled with Pace and accuracy which troubled the opposition throughout.
In the U13’s, Megan Lang, also was unbeaten and retired in all 3 matches, and skipper Emily Cunnliffe who led from the front in all the games with superb batting and bowling displays.
Another notable performance which could have put the spanner in the works for Rainford was Megan Wildish from AKS taking a hat trick, all 3 players bowled out.
Chris Chambers (LCB Cricket Development Coach for St Helens) said “Having worked with both sets of Girls in the winter after school, it’s great to see them being rewarded for all their skills work we have practiced throughout”
Also attending the day was Women and Girls Cricket Development Officer, Jen Laycock she added “A great days play by all participants, especially from Ellie Threlkeld one of our identified players currently training with England Development U15s led from the front. I also saw some great development work going on with girls who last year couldn’t bowl were now taking wickets for their team. An excellent competition showcasing the some of our top players and some of our up and coming players in the County”
The Lancashire Cricket Board would like to thank Thornton Cleveleys Sports centre and all the schools who attended for their ongoing support in developing the women and girls game.
