Sunday 11th of June saw a huge step in the development of girls cricket at Bramhall CC. It was the day that five U13, and two U9 girls took part in the Cheshire Girls festival taking place at Timperley Sports Club, with the U13 girls making a team of their own, and the U9 girls joining with Alvanley Cricket Club and Alsager Cricket Club to form a combined team.
The U9 girls, Bethany Tittensor and Aneesa Hussain batted beautifully together in their games, which included a partnership of 38 runs off 4 overs without losing a wicket, and also helped their team to winning two games with a 100% record.
The U13 girls that participated were Lily Beckley, Megan Landing, Hattie Snell, Natasha Vernon, and May Nassar. These girls also maintained a 100% win record winning both of their games, beating Hayfield CC by 20 runs, and Didsbury CC by 26 runs. All five girls contributed together, building some great partnerships with the bat, as well as fielding to a very high standard. They were also helped by younger sisters Poppy and Claudia who didn’t look out of place at all when fielding, despite being a few years younger and this is promising for the future of girls cricket at Bramhall.
All in all, it was a great day organised by Jess Lewis of Cheshire Women’s and Girls Cricket, and it shows huge encouragement for the development of the girls at Bramhall, winning their first games in only their first festival.
