On Sunday the 5th August we beat Kibworth Ladies to win the Women’s Midlands League – Division 4NE. This was, as always, a true team performance with everyone giving their full commitment to chasing down the ball, bowling fantastic line and length and staying alert in the field. After the struggles of last season the hard work we’ve been putting in paid off when we bowled out Kibworth for 48. With Polly Huband taking 3 wickets, SJ Carpenter 2, Sarah Parker 2, Molly Satterthwaite 1, Becca Claydon 1 and Heather Beattie 1.
The team has had its fair share of individual performances with the likes of Polly, who I could always rely on for the breakthrough wicket. Megan who steadied the batting during a wobble vs Ibstock. Beth who kept the runs down whilst bowling and the runs up whilst batting. Or for the 5fers we’ve enjoyed from Molly Rossiter, SJ Carpenter and Lucy Weston. I look forward to listing several more at presentation evening.
As I’m sure you can tell I’m proud of every member of the squad who we could not have achieved everything this season without and look forward to the challenges of next season.
Finally,I want to thank Gill for scoring for us and helping me out on match days, the groundstaff for getting us some brilliant pitches out and the parents of our younger members who get them to the games, help sort out the teas and provide unwavering enthusiasm.
Our final match of the season is vs Wellingborough on the 3rd of September and we welcome anyone who wants to come along and watch!
