Girls & Women squad 2016 Presentations


The Women and Girls squad Presentations for the season’s best performances were an enjoyable last get together with drinks and pizzas before the start of indoor cricket during the winter months.

Of our ten completed games, we won six and lost four, our best performance to date since the squad was formed – a great achievement!. There were outstanding performances from Rachel Hook who scored 494 runs, ably supported by Laura Pearson scoring 374. Christine Jackson’s bowling economy rate stopped many batting attacks from getting started, and there was excellent support in the field from the whole squad.
