Ladies cricket

In 2019 OBWCC ladies finished second in the newly formed South League. The league formation is a great move that shows the number of teams playing in Gloucestershire is such that we can regionalise further. We had a fun season winning 5 league matches (the most in the league) and some friendlies and narrowly missing out on the league win.

We also took part in a pairs indoor tournament over the winter months and a soft ball cricket tournament at Coalpit Heath. Both were great ways to get in some extra matches and play a varied format.

Particular highlights from the year were that Maria and Vicki won the league best batter and bowler awards. With Maria scoring 183 runs this season and Vicki a whole club “feat of the season” award winning 7/5 in our last match against Bath.

As always there are too many people to name individually for their performances, but we had some particularly great bowling averages, and came back from last years slightly lacklustre batting performance to secure some much needed runs.

I am hoping for another great year next year.
