The U11s girls have been busy across June, playing in games against Cheshire, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire and Northumberland, while also competing in an intra-squad match day.

There were a number of excellent individual and team performances throughout the month with the stand out being scoring 227 in 30 overs against Lancashire. Poppy Watson 33 off 32 led the batting innings while Ella Johnson (4-2-3-4), Ava Moorland (4-4-0-1) and Olivia Wilkinson (4-1-5-3) were the pick of the bowlers.

Against Notts the Girls chased down 113 without losing a wicket inside16 overs, Poppy Watson 42* and Emily Shaw 49* batted brilliantly throughout scoring all around the ground.

At the back end of June there were two excellent half centuries in a day against Northumberland. Hannah Maceachern 56* off 45 and Maryam Ahmed 62 off 50 smashed 21 boundaries between them in what was an excellent display from them both.

The months fixtures were emphatically topped off with Ella Johnson claiming 5-5, which included a hattrick with the first 3 balls of the Notts innings.

The girls are loving their cricket at the moment and are developing really well, which is great to see.
