It was very exciting to play our first hard ball T20 match of the Cricket season and to host Marlborough on a beautiful day matched by an impressive setting at New Fields.
The girls opted to bowl first and claimed a confident early wicket by Year 9 Issy in her debut hard ball match for the school, dismissing their number two batter, wickets also for Lottie and a mighty three for captain Beth.
Despite this, Marlborough had some strong technical batters and secured a healthy lead into the second half. Unfortunately, we were unable to match their runs and fell short of their total 135.
However, the girls show lots of promise and it bodes to be an exciting season ahead! Well done all.
