Flegg High School Win Lady Taverners U15's 2015

Lady Taverners U15's 2015 - Friday 20th March - UEA Sportspark

The Lady Taverners Under 15 competition was expected to be a close run event and with the title not decided until the final round of matches it did not disappoint with the standard of play increasing year on year at this age group.

 

As is turned out the key match was played in round one with the girls from Flegg High School getting the better of North Walsham by 35 runs. That said, newcomers to the competition, Thorpe St Andrew quickly established themselves as dark horses beating Cromer Academy, Lynn Grove and Northgate in their 1st three matches. Thorpe had previously beaten Attleborough Academy and Thetford Academy in a pre-qualifying competition.

 

North Walsham ended Thorpe’s run in round 4 with a narrow 11 run victory – indeed after their early set back the North Walsham team fought back well and given a favourable result in the final match between Thorpe and Flegg still had an outside chance of retaining their title.

 

The final match was a real thriller with Thorpe batting first scoring a competitive 82-4 the Flegg reply was steady but a close finish ensued and indeed two crucial run outs off the last two balls ensured a tied match with the scores level which was a fantastic finish to a great competition.

 

Flegg High School ( pictured with the trophy ) were therefore declared champions by just one point from North Walsham with Thorpe St Andrew a further point behind in third.
