b'THE ELLESMERIAN 132CricketGirls U15On Saturday 7thMay the U15 Team stepped out for their first ever hard ball match in a friendly away game against Moreton Hall. The fixture provided the team with the opportunity for everyone to bat and field in a competitive but coached environment.There was a lot to take away from this first experience, which proved vital for our next match.The spirit with which the team played against Shrewsbury School was incredible. The team demonstrated some efficient fielding and batting, which showed the giant strides they had made in a very short space of time.Unfortunately, after a great start against Moreton Hall in the final match of the season, the team lost their heads and in very quick succession a number of wickets fell.This, however, should not put a damper on the very promising start that the players have shown and we already look forward to next season.CSD'
