Having watched the final, I would add that this was an excellent performance from Lancashire U13 girls. The whoops of delight when Sussex won the toss from players and spectators alike, soon turned to silence as the Lancs openers, and Ellie Threlkeld in particular, took the bowling and fielding apart with a mixture of smart singles and well timed drives and cuts. Even a middle order `wobble` when the `hitters` had been sent in, was too little too late for Sussex, and Hannah Jones` cameo 19 no took the score up to an imposing target.
The bowlers and fielders then set about their business, and even at 30-2 after 6 overs the writing was on the wall. Every catch was held, and run out opportunity taken, and with fielders throwing themselves across the turf to save even an odd single, the difference in athleticism between the two teams was clear, and acknowledged by even the Sussex coaches. Credit too to Ellie Ralston for her adept captaincy and field placings.
As a Leicestershire (other losing semi finalists) parent was overheard to say at the presentation- "they are a seriously good (cricket) team"
Congratulations to Tony Potter, Jenny Laycock and Chris Chambers who deserve huge credit in overseeing what I believe, is the first natonal success for Lancs women`s cricket.
