Ladies cricket

The ladies team had an enjoyable 2021 season and completed a full season of league despite Covid. Unfortunately the weather had better ideas for our cup season and we lost on a coin toss.

The best game of the season was against Bradley Stoke where we put 118 on the board in 20 overs. Rachel Evans scoring 39 and Maria Fowler retiring on 50. Unfortunately Bradley Stoke won on the last ball but wickets were picked up by Clare Coyne, Vicki Crocker and Rosie Bradley and it was one of our best fielding displays.

Notable batting performances were Rachel Evans 29 and Angela Watts 26 against Golden Hill, Becca Potter 29 vs Bradley Stoke, Maria Fowler 58*, 39 and 34 all vs Brislington. Special mention to Abi Clements who after an unlucky start to the season with the bat made an impressive 28* against Golden Hill.

Bowling was a great team effort this year with everyone bowling some really economical overs and picking up much needed wickets. The most economical bowling came against Bath who won the league. Rosie Bradley had the most wickets by the end of the season, consistently picking up a wicket and finishing with the best bowling figures.

A special thanks to Steph who did lots of scoring for us and to Peter and Andy for umpiring, without you it wouldn’t be possible for us to play.
