U13 Girls Shropshire Lady Taverners Indoor Champions

Last week the U13 girls travelled to Shrewsbury Sports Village to take part in the Shropshire Finals of the Lady Taverners Indoor Competition. The girls had previously beaten Lakelands by 4 wickets, to qualify for the finals as the representative school from North Shropshire. This was the first time the girls have entered the 8 aside 12 over competition.

The girls beat Charlton School from Telford in their first match, followed by victory over Ludlow College.

The final was a close affair with the School defeating the defending champions Bridgnorth Endowed. The Girls batted first and scored 87-6 off their 12 over allocation. Bridgnorth replied with 61-6 to leave Ellesmere the victors by 26 runs and they now go on to represent Shropshire in the regional finals next month

The girls now wait to see who they take on at the end of April in the Regional Finals hosted at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham. Girls cricket at the School has taken off over the last 12 months and now 6 of the 9 girls in the squad are in the Shropshire squads for their age groups.

Director of Cricket Rod Jones, commented, The girls played outstanding cricket all day, it is testament to their hard work over the winter. We are all now looking forward to the regional finals at Edgbaston where we hope to represent Shropshire well.
