U13’s Do the double over Chippenham
The U13 girls signed off the season on Monday eve with fine 20 run victory over Chippenham CC.
A mixed age group of girls including 3 x 9-year-olds took to the field, all raring to go with a spring in their step and a smile on their faces.
Chippenham batted 1st and made 116, off 20 overs, but an excellent bowling and fielding display meant we took 10 wickets - with Mia Webb, Lily Bradley, Maddie White and Ruby Hand excelling with the ball and a great direct hit run out ( again ) for Lily. With the younger girls stopping everything that came their way.
Our turn to bat and the girls did really well amassing 121 runs losing only 7 wickets. Claudia White, Maddie White, Mia, Darcey Leighton, Lily all batted well ( with lily and Tamias usual exciting partnership ) and some great decision making and calling from everyone including Katy Gwilliam and Frankie Hand got us over the line.
It was a great way to finish the season - well done to everyone.
And thanks to all the parents for helping to get the game on so close to school starting .
