U13s triumph in Malvern

Some top performances give the girls confidence heading into National Semi finals

The Annual trip to Malvern College for the U13s girls, myself, Chris Chambers and Tony Potter is completed with success. We faced Leicestershire, Somerset and Essex over the 3 days in 40 over games. The 40 overs allowed us to push the girls out of their comfort zone as they normally only play 30 overs. Day 1 and tiredness from the late night showed in the field, 24 wides bowled and some poor fielding allowed Leicestershire to post 192 all out. This was however not enough to prevent us taking game 1. An excellent run chase was composed and we knocked off the runs with 7 overs to spare losing just 3 wickets.

Wednesday brought Somerset and a bumpy outfield to test our fielding! Batting first we posted 207 off 40 overs with a changed batting order. Somerset got off to a decent start with our openers going for 42 in first 8 overs. We pulled it back to 59 for 1 off 14. This wicket began the collapse and we ended up bowling them out for 112 in 33 overs.

Day 3 and some very tired girls embarked on gaining boarding house dominance over Essex! Bowling first I was concerned we would struggle again in the field but a pre-match talk from myself and Chirs seemed to work and we bowled straight and fielded very well. 93 all out off just 24 overs meant a short game and an early return north. We knocked off the runs losing just 1 wicket in 16 overs.
