Match report: U14 rounders v Hellesdon High School

Our U14 rounders team travelled over to Hellesdon High School for a very sunny but windy afternoon of rounders yesterday. During this fixture, I saw excellent fielding that prevented the opposition from scoring highly against us. Well done to Ashlyn G for using her long-barrier to good effect! I am pleased to report that we won by a margin of three-and-a-half rounders.  Player of the Match award went to Mia D, as nominated by the opposition –  most likely for scoring six rounders! Congratulations to everyone.

Match report: U14 rounders v Thetford Grammar School

Yesterday our newly-formed U14 rounders team played their first game of the season in a very close match against Thetford Grammar School . There was just half a rounder in it at the end, with a final score of twelve rounders to Thetford and eleven and a half to us. What a closely fought match – it literally came down to the last ball of the game!  Player of the Match was awarded to Mia D, for her great hitting throughout!
