Our Under 14 Shires League team have just braved the stormy weather to spend the weekend playing a triple-header against East Midland counties. Managed by Gillian Cockett and supported by a great team of parents, the players were
Chalida Prapunwong, Jasmine Osborn, Reema Rajeev, Sophie Cockett, Matthew Jefferson, Oliver Heron, Ryan Cockett and Thomas Vicente.
A more detailed report may follow, as and when Gillian has caught up on a lost few days, but in summary they lost 1-19 to a very strong Leicestershire team, produced an encouraging 5-15 against Nottingham and then travelled home in great spirits having beaten Derby 16-4. All the players scored wins in the various disciplines over the weekend and, although we had asked a lot of this very young team, they all showed great resilience and will have learnt a great deal.
We have never done a Shires weekend like this one but it seems to have gone really well and the players all want to repeat it. Very many thanks to them – and to the whole support team.
