Lymington Ladies Cricket Team Celebrate Victory
16 Ladies from Lymington Cricket Club took part in the ECB This Girl Can tournament on Sunday and celebrated a well-deserved victory.
The Ladies started their training as complete novices and, with the support and coaching from the Hampshire coach Charlotte Taylor, competed in this weekend’s tournament. The first match was against Portchester where Lymington batted first, and once pre-match nerves subsided, demonstrated some great shots and big hits which resulted in a win by 27 runs. Next up was Portsmouth and in a tightly contested game Lymington’s effort, focus and and determination resulted in a 10 run victory. The final match was against the local Sway Ladies team. With two wins under Lymington’s belt the all ladies team where un-wavering in their plan to continue their winning streak. Excellent Bowling, tight fielding and strong wicket keeping produced a convincing 36 run win. Lymington Ladies now head to the finals where they will face teams from North Hampshire on the 26th July.
