On: Wednesday, 08 May 2024
Venue: Away

On Wednesday our u11 girls took part in their first ever hard-ball cricket match. The girls played a 20 over game. Fielding first Fairstead got off to a strong start, taking some early wickets with straight bowling and some good catching. Everyone bowled 3 overs gaining good experience for up coming festivals and fixtures. Isabella bowled particularly well and claimed 2 wickets in her first over. Laila keeping wicket for the first time did a great job! Chasing 115 for victory Fairstead stayed up with the run rate through the majority of their innings only to fall short by 17 runs. Special mention to Fenella (9) and Mia (11) who were excellent with the bat. Overall the girls can be very proud of their first hard-ball game. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season and working hard on our bowling, batting and fielding skills!
