This week the U8s took on Lancing Preps U9B team at rounders. The sun was shining and the girls were excited to play! Our Captain today was Annabel Preen who won the toss and decided to field first!
The girls got off to a fantastic start, great bowling from Emma Nathaniel and really tight fielding and accurate throwing from the rest of the team – they were working hard and playing well. Lancing scored 5½ rounders. The girls were then into bat and determined to do well. Full rounders were scored by Jemima Caldwell, Annabel Preen and Callie Benedict who helped bring Copthorne’s total to 8½ rounders. A good start!
In the second innings the girls continued to play well, their fielding was impressive. Once again Lancing scored 5½ rounders bringing their total to 11. Full rounders were then scored by Jemima, Lila Bellamy and Callie who helped bring Copthorne’s total to 16! We had a few run – outs in this innings which the girls didn’t quite understand but we will put it down to tactical play!
Well done girls a fantastic game!
