GREAT MELTON U13 GIRLS lost to CRINGLEFORD U13s by 51 runs at Cringleford in the SNCL
Melton U13 Girls, minus several key players, were not quite strong enough to overcome Cringleford but played their part in an enjoyable game
After Cringleford had won the toss and decided to bat Melton bowled and fielded with great enthusiasm to restrict the home side to 96-4. Direct-hit run outs by Alice Greenslade and Lucy Morton, a batsman clean-bowled by Alice and a catch by Cassie Mawby that dismissed the Cringleford opener for 38, accounted for the 4 wickets.
Batting wasn’t so good, however. Holly Marchant was run out first ball of the innings and, thereafter it was a struggle. Skipper Becky Greenslade top scored with 15 but Melton were bowled ou for just 45 to give Cringleford a 51-run win.
The girls had a great attitude to the game and thanks to Nick Morton and Duncan Greenslade who umpired and John Marchant who scored. Becky captained a young side well and Caitlin Ellis celebrated scoring her first four as if she’d scored a century!
