Double success for Gloucestershire Girls U11s

GLOUCESTERSHIRE Girls U11s produced two fine team performances to overcome Warwickshire in a friendly double header.

Lottie Compton retired on 19 as Gloucestershire reached 117-3 in the first clash before their visitors were restricted to a reply of 82-8, Ruby Charles-Aingworth claiming 3-10 from three and Flori Parish taking 2-8 from two.

And in the second match, Rose Mason (28 not), Charvi Prabha Jeganath (3-12) and Lottie Compton (3-15) shone in a seven-run success.

There were also two more wins for Gloucestershire Girls U15 Development squad (pictured), this time against Buckinghamshire.

Millie Downey claimed 4-10 from three overs to help pave the way for a seven-wicket triumph, opener Krithika Karthik then top scoring on 40.

And Millie then showed off her batting skills in the next game, top scoring with an unbeaten 27 before capping a memorable day with fine figures of 3-23 from four to help secure an exciting four-run success.


Gloucestershire U18 girls, meanwhile, were ten-wicket victors away to Cornwall, Jemima Smith taking centre stage with terrific figures of 5-6 from 7.3 overs as the home side were bowled out for  just 74.

Bea Willis (39) and Emilia Powell (22) then needed only 10.1 overs to bank the points.

But the U18s were unable to make it six from six when they travelled to Taunton to take on neighbours Somerset who eased to a seven-wicket win.

Jen Rivers’ late unbeaten 35 lifted the visitors to a 40-over total of 159-9 which proved to be well within range for Somerset who got over the line with ten overs to spare despite Jen’s spell of 2-22.
