Ellesmere Aiming For Glory At Lord's: The Home of Cricket

Ellesmere are targeting national success in the Lady Taverners Under-15 Cricket Competition. The girls booked their place at the finals which will be staged at the home of English cricket, Lords Cricket Ground, on May 5th.

Six teams from across the Midlands took part in the regional event at Nottingham's Trent Bridge but it was Ellesmere who came out on top following some accomplished performances with bat and ball.

In the league format Ellesmere College won all of their five games, to finish on 15 points, winning the title by a clear six points. The girls took their form from winning the county competition into the regional finals, where they maintained their undefeated run.

Ellesmere managed to beat Bishops of Hereford Bluecoat (Herefordshire), Christopher Whitehead (Worcestershire), Minster (Nottinghamshire), Tudor Grange (Warwickshire) and Wolverhampton Girls High School (Staffordshire) to win the competition and clinch the Midlands title.

Rod Jones, Cricket Academy Head Coach, said "This is a huge achievement for the team, all of the girls played really well and it was a good team effort. We are hoping to take this level of performance on to the national finals in May and hopefully we will have the same success there. The team is certainly capable of winning more competitions".
