On Monday the Under 8 girls had their first rounders match, which was against Stamford, in the glorious sunshine. We had two teams and the captains were Karan and Shonali.
Shonalis Team: Poppy, Olivia, Shonali, Imara, Isobella N, Isobelle C, Lea and Daisy
Shonalis team played against the Stamford A team who all batted and fielded well, but the Stoneygate team ran brilliantly between first and second posts to secure more half rounders and win the match.
Player of the match: Shonali for excellent batting and fielding
Special mentions: Poppy for scoring a great rounder and excellent throwing at backstop and to Olivia for great effort with her batting and fielding.
Karans Team: Tilly, Lyla, Darcey, Tahliya, Emily, Lola, Izzy H and Karan
Karans team looked very determined from the start against the Stamford B and we saw some good bowling from Emily, Lyla, Karan and Izzy. Lola and Tahliya shared backstop and Lyla and Tilly both had a go on second post. Great to see such enthusiasm amongst all the girls to try lots of different fielding positions. With some excellent running to second post and everyone scoring at least half a rounder, Stoneygate won the match.
Player of the match: Tilly for an amazing catch and for stumping out one of the Stamford players at third.
Special mentions: Darcey for scoring a fantastic rounder and to Lola for careful, accurate throwing at backstop.
Very well played everyone.
