The U8s were ready to take on their 2nd match of the week. They had all taken part in sports day in the morning and the sun was shining- it was hot!

This afternoons captain was Emily Goodfellow who lost the toss so Copthorne were batting first. Copthorne didn’t get off to the best start with their batting as unfortunately quite a few no balls were bowled. No full rounders were scored but they did manage to set a score of 3½! It was up to their fielding now. The girls fielding was superb – great bowling from Emma Nathaniel and good general fielding from Jemima Caldwell but it was a real team effort. Handcross scored 2 rounders!

During the second innings the girls got their batting form back! We had full rounders from Jemima Caldwell and Shriya Jayatilaka and lots of half rounders scored. Copthorne had managed a total of 10½ rounders! The girls continued to field well with Handcross scoring a further 4½ rounders.

Well done girl s- a great effort after a long day in the sun!   HC
