U13 Lady Taverners Indoor title heads to Bournemouth
From an initial entry of 865 schools it was down to the final five for the National Finals at Lord's last week (9 May) where Blythe Bridge High School, Bournemouth School for Girls, Farlingaye High School, Godolphin & Latymer and Ormskirk School where all going for the U13 national indoor title.
The matches were fiercely competitive with the girls showing a high degree of skill in all aspects of the game with some particularly 'dead eye' run outs. It was evident that there was a great sense of fun, camaraderie and enjoyment of celebrating each other’s success within all the teams.
The crucial match which ultimately decided the winners was between Godolphin & Latymer, who scored 83-7 in their 8 overs, narrowly being beaten off the last ball by Bournemouth who scored 84-7.
Carole Garner, Chairman of the Lady Taverners, along with Mike Gatting presented the recently renamed trophy in honour of Rachael Heyhoe Flint to Hannah Saunders, Captain of Bournemouth School for Girls.
