Flegg High School claim Lady Taverners U13 Indoor crown 2014

Flegg High School claim Lady Taverners U13 Indoor crown 2014

Flegg won the Lady Taverners Indoor U13 County Final for the first time, and will represent Norfolk in the Regional Finals in Leicestershire in April.

 

An exciting day was had by all teams with the competition being one of the closest for many years.

 

Played in a league format, there were some excellent games including Northgate beating Flegg by 2 runs in the first match, and then beating Cromer on countback after the match had been tied at 59-1 for each side!

 

Cromer and Flegg A were emerging as the main contenders to early pacesetters Dereham Northgate, and when Northgate slipped up against Lynn Grove after round 3, five teams were in contention.

 

Going in to the final round of games, Flegg A were playing Cromer in what was effectively a winner takes all contest. Northgate were also in contention although a substantially inferior run total meant that they needed a high scoring win, whilst hoping for a low scoring result in the Cromer - Flegg match.

 

As it turned out Flegg A beat Cromer by 14 runs in a high quality final match to secure the title, with Northgate finishing as runners up despite a valiant effort to make up the runs total, scoring over 100 in their final game.

 

Praise and thanks should go to all the girls who all showed significant improvement in their play throughout the day, and of course to the NCB umpires, and teachers who supported the players and event through the day. Special thanks also to Flegg High School who provided a B team for the day after the late withdrawal of one school.

 

We wish Flegg all the best when they head to the Regional Finals, and we look forward to the 2015 competition when NCB hope to introduce local qualifying matches to increase the size of the competition.
