Sessay Emeralds are into the ECB’s National Women’s T20 final.

Sessay, including a host of Yorkshire women’s players, beat defending champions Bishop’s Stortford by seven wickets chasing a target of 69 at Denby on Sunday.

The North Yorkshire side will now face Bridgewater at Kibworth CC in the Leicestershire countryside in the final on Sunday August 1.

Bridgewater, from Somerset, beat Gunnersbury in their semi-final.

Sophie Richardson claimed 3-17 from her four overs and White Rose women’s duo Adrianna Darlow and captain Jessica Woolston were both miserly in taking two wickets apiece as Bishop’s Stortford were bowled out for 68 having been inserted.

In reply, opener Amy Burton top-scored with 35 not out off 42 balls, sharing 31 for the second wicket with Phoebe Turner (16).

Sessay were the 2019 champions of the Yorkshire Women’s and Girls League’s Premier Division, a competition which begins this summer on July 18.

Wrenthorpe, who also play in the same division, suffered national disappointment on Sunday when they were beaten semi-finalists in the ECB’s National T20 Plate competition.

Also at Denby, they were beaten by six runs against Cambridgeshire side Thriplow.

Invited to bat first, Thriplow were bowled out for 89, owing much to a superb 4-13 from four overs from opening bowler Emilia Rossi.

Poppy Moss also returned 3-13 from her key four-over spell.

Unfortunately, in reply, Wrenthorpe fell from 31-0 to 61-6, later finishing on 83-7, with Lucy Lindley’s 22 in the middle order their top score.
