Our Under 15A Girls’ Cricket Team enjoyed a cracking game against Wymondham College on Saturday (June 15th), and on Monday evening (June 17th), our 1st XI Girls took on City of Ely CC Ladies’ XI Team.

Speaking about the Under 15A match, our Director of Sport, Mr Alex Meddle, said: “The Under 15As posted an impressive 144-6 off 20 overs. The opening pair of Megan Bungard and Eliza O’Donnell started strongly, scoring a number of runs before Lotte Hulscher came in at 3, hitting boundaries all over the pitch and taking the bowling to Wymondham. Lotte was supported by Imogen Smith, who kept the run rate ticking over. Imogen finished on 28 and Lotte on 32. After the 10-over mark, King’s were on 70-3, with Odette Dudley supporting Imogen at the crease. Some excellent Wymondham bowling restricted King’s in the final few overs, but some good hitting from Bella Boughton and Imogen Thurlow brought the total to 144 at the interval. As the heavens opened, King’s were able to further 8 overs in, with the bowling shared around but some excellent spells from Lulu Boon, Phoebe Hart and Rosie Morris restricting Wymondham to 39-2 off 8 overs. An all-round performance and a moral victory, but most importantly, a real team effort.”

Speaking about the 1st XI match, Mr Josh Jordan, our Head of Girls’ Cricket, said: “King’s won the toss, batted first, and put on an impressive show, scoring 112-3 off their 20 overs. Emilia Watts, Cordelia Udy and Phoebe Thurlow were the stand-out performers, displaying great shots throughout their innings and brilliant running between the wickets. This innings was undoubtedly one of the best batting performances of the year from the girls, and they should be proud of the score and how they batted. When it came down to defending the total, King’s immediately became aware that they faced a strong City of Ely Ladies batting line-up. City of Ely applied pressure from the very first ball, which tested the girls’ bowling accuracy, as well as their fielding capabilities. Strong partnerships were formed from City of Ely and after a few fielding errors, City of Ely began to inch closer and closer to the target, making the game hang in the balance. In a nail-biting finish, City of Ely needed 4 runs off the final 3 balls. They managed to secure a boundary in the second to last ball, clinching a hard-fought victory but one that was truly deserved as they impressively chased down the total 4. The 1st XI girls gained invaluable experience from this highly competitive match, and it was a fixture that they will learn lots from! The squad is now very much looking forward to playing in the first ever 1st XI vs Old Elean Women’s Team match on Saturday!”
