This was the first match for year seven and they have not played together as a team. All girls have been regularly attending club on a Thursday evening and captains Grace Richardson and Caitlin Petit organised their players well. Fairlands batted well and eventually came through to win. Poppy Whittingham was given girl of the match.
Final score. Fairlands won
The girls fielded and batted well and their skills were exceptional. At one point they managed to get all the opposition out. This team have been focusing on their batting and it showed as time after time they hit the ball into the distant horizon. Zoe Collyer batted superbly and score four rounders.
