U9 B’s won by 10.5 – 9 rounders
I was very pleased with the performance of this young team in the match against Walthamstow Hall. Despite no warm-up time, the girls went in to bat first, and faced twenty balls. Charlotte Metcalfe scored a beauty, and 6 others scored at least a half each to give us 6.5 at side out. We took to the field, and Walthamstow Hall scored 4. Charlotte Metcalfe bowled steadily, and Emma Sorrell was dependable as backstop. Captain Katie Davies played well on 2nd post supported by Scarlett Johnston behind her. Nicole James, Anika Hansen and Louisa Annandale kept careful watch as the other post players.
Two of Walthamstow Hall had to leave at half time, with the score at 6.5 – 4 to us, and in the second innings we bumped our score up to 10.5. Charlotte Metcalfe finished the day as top scorer on 2.5 rounders. Sasha Ford, Charlotte Palmer and Scarlett Johnston all scored 1.5 each. We then fielded, but to even up the match, just seven participated, in rotation. Walthamstow Hall played well, and crept up to 9 rounders. Well played girls!
