On Tuesday 12th June our Cricket teams participated in the Rachel Heyhoe Flint Girls U13 and U15 Cup Tournament organised by Staffordshire Cricket in partnership with Wolverhampton Wonderers. The competition was tough but the girls put in a fantastic effort and performance.
The girls got off to a great start winning their first two matches against Sandwell Academy and Wolverhampton Girls High School (B). They lost to Newcastle Under Lyme School but had done enough to make the semi-final where they faced Wolverhampton Girls High School (A). This was the first time these girls had played together at a cricket tournament, the time they had committed to training and developing their batting, bowling and fielding skills certainly contributed to their performance on the day. Well done!
The U15 team got off to a great start beating ACE 85-29. Despite some great catches we couldn’t stop Wolgarston hitting the boundary and clocking up 76 runs to our 45. The girls put a strong effort in against Our Lady St Chads and it was a close game 62-51. The girls attended this tournament a year ago, it was a pleasure to see how much progress the girls have made, well done girls!
