Under 13A match v Clayesmore.
Hanford lost the toss and were put in to bat first. After a steady first round of hitting with a couple of half rounders scored, the girls found their rhythm and started to hit some well placed shots which opened up some cracks in the Clayesmore fielding. Hanford led 7-3 after the first innings. Alice took a couple of super catches around 3rd post and a couple from Willa and a back stop catch from Charlotte put Clayesmore under pressure in addition to some strong deep fielding from Daisy, Fenella and Annabel.
In the second innings, Hanford were placing the ball in all areas of the field and managed to score a number of rounders, with Daisy scoring 4 successively. Rosa, Jemima and Charlotte also adding to the total.
The bowling from Willa, Georgia, Jemima and Tilly was consistently good and the match finished with a score of 17 to Hanford and Clayesmores 7.
