Well done to the girls who rounded off a strange term of rounders in fine fashion with a strong win over Belhaven. The weather was gorgeous with hot sun beating down. We batted first and it has to be said, looked a little shaky at points; we lost 6 of the girls throughout the match which was far from ideal however the final 3 of Clara, Venetia and Poppy kept us in the game. Poppy in particular was strong, and she scored 3 ½ rounders and would have scored more, if there had been more good balls on offer.
The Belhaven girls came in to bat and luckily our fielding was better than our batting! It took them to ball 12 to score any rounders and particularly strong fielding from Katinka and catches from Charlotte and Poppy saw their score limited to 3 ½.

We started strongly in our second innings with both Clara and Clemmie scoring whole rounders in the first 2 balls. We did not lose any of our players and we stayed steady and racked up the half rounders. Once again, Poppy scored well and she really was the stand out player today, scoring 2 ½ I her second innings.
Some very good fielding followed from the girls, and we put Belhaven out after 25 balls. Poppy made a steady catch on ball 2 and Valentina had a flurry of put outs at post 1 after Josephine pitched the balls perfectly to her. Clemmie was super steady at 2 and nothing seemed to phase her.
