History Made as Molly B Makes Her 2nd XI Debut
History was made on Saturday at Broadleys in a 2nd team bubble league game V Combe Down. Not with Santosh Nair’s double hundred but with our very own MOLLY B becoming the 1ST EVER youth ( U15 ) female cricketer to play for the 2nd team in our club history.
Understandably a little nervous at the start Molly then came on to bowl and removed their opener in a tidy 4 over spell of bowling, also fielding well and pinging the ball accurately to the keeper every time - Her level of banter easily better than a few of her teammates as well!!!
The game was dominated by Combe Downs other opener, with them reaching 316, this total ending up 50 too much for us with Glenn Perry starring with his 4-for and 2nd 70 of the season and a breezy and classy 62 from Pascy were our highlights. With Charlie Stevens also on debut ( I think ) picking up 2 wickets as well, showing he is also one for the future of this club.
We could have done with Lamby, but he was toiling away in the 1st team and that’s another story!!!
Molly's debut for the 2nd team will stand out as my highlight of this shortened season - and long may our dedication to the youth of our village Cricket club continue.
