This week the U8s had their first rounders match. After only a short time to practise and learn the rules the girls were excited to play! Our first match was against Ardingly and Jemima Caldwell was our captain. She won the toss and decided to field first!
In the first innings Copthorne fielded fantastically getting 5 batters out and only conceding 2½ rounders! Emma Nathaniel bowled accurately and Jemima took control of the field. It was now our turn to bat! We got off to a great start scoring a total of 5 rounders. Full rounders were scored by Jemima Caldwell, Annabel Preen and Sophia Vieira.
In the second innings the girls continued to bat and field well with lots of excitement from both teams! Jemima scored a further 2 whole rounders bringing her total to 3! The final score finished Copthorne 12 and Ardingly 8.
A great first game girls!
Thank you to all the supporters.
