ECC Women's third indoor league game 2019-20 season.
Once again the Eynsham women traded their Saturday night out to play cricket in the Oxfordshire Women and Girls indoor winter league. This week was the return match against Horspath CC.
Horspath are a great bunch of cricketers and the game was played in the same good spirit as the last match. With the opposition batting first our bowlers were made to work hard only taking one wicket but restricting them to 88 runs, a target well within Eynsham’s reach. All the players bowled well with pick of the bunch being, Matilda, Ellen, Esmé, Jane and Kelly.
Batting second Eynsham got off to a steady start chasing down the target not losing a single wicket. Our total for the match was 103 runs. The team have now batted for 32 overs (two games) and not lost a single wicket, a tribute to the amount of effort they have been putting in to improve their game – well done everyone. As with the bowling everyone batted well, pick of the batters were Kelly, Karen and Tara with some big hitting by Martine to finish the game.
Well done to the women who extend their position at the top of the league.
The team from left to right is:
Tara Lawfull, Kelly Huggard, Ellen Emberson, Karen Miller, Martine Summers, Matilda Bishop, Jane Bishop, Esmé Phillips, Claire Phillips.
