Finally the great British weather was kind enough to allow us to get out onto the rounders fields. With four teams out and about throughout the afternoon it was always going to be a busy one. Miss Worsley escorted our junior team over to Smallwood, where according to all reports, the girls played really well, fielding slightly better than their batting but all in all a really encouraging first game. They narrowly lost 9 rounders to 12.
Back at home we fielded three teams, U13, U15 and a Senior team against Stafford Grammar. There were some excellent performances on all three pitches, with Ella Pownall displaying confidence in both her batting and fielding for the seniors and Claudia Bettson Burdett scoring a number of impressive rounders and playing a very alert fielding game for the U15 team. In the U13 match, Jennifer Brown (up against her sister) scored a fabulous rounder with Emellia Thomas making her debut onto the Abbotsholme team and playing extremely well. We were consistent across all three pitches, coming in second to three very impressive Stafford teams, however all games were close, exciting and full of promise.
