Young Great Melton Stars take U13 Lady Taverners TitleNorfolk Cricket Board U13 Lady Taverner’s Report 2018

On Tuesday 28th August Norfolk Cricket Board ran the U13 Lady Taverner’s softball competition at Great Melton Cricket Club. Swardeston, Great Melton and Old Buckenham were the 3 teams to take part in the day.

The format of the day included a round robin between all 3 teams. Each game was played with a Kwik-Cricket format to allow it to be inclusive and quick. Allowing everyone the chance to bat and bowl that gave a great opportunity to many young girls that were playing for the first time.

Swardeston played against Old Buckenham is the first game with Swardeston coming out on top by 65 runs. Great Melton then took on Old Buckenham that saw a very close encounter happen. Great Melton taking the victory by 5 runs. The final game was perfectly set up for a final with both Swardeston and Great Melton having won 1 game each, with the winner would take the glory for the day. Swardeston looked to be winners with a lead of 1 run heading into the final over but some great bowling saw 2 wickets fall and Great Melton were crowned U13 Lady Taverner’s Winners by 6 runs.

All in all a fantastic day for the girls where over 25 girls had the opportunity to play. Many Thanks to Great Melton CC for hosting the event wonderfully. Hopefully we will be back in 2019 with even more Girls teams taking part.
